Suggestions for getting EWCM?


Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to get ewcm. I had a ton 2 cycles ago, but unfortunately I was out of town and away from DH. Last cycle I had non, even when I had a positive OPK.
This cycle I got a smiley face on my clearblue OPK on Friday at CD12. I normally ovulate late though (I have 30-33 day cycles) so I'm not sure I trust that. Today on CD 14, I had a blank circle, so clearly no more surge. I have been slightly crampy but absolutely NO ewcm
I am trying to drink a lot of water because I've heard that can help increase cm. I've heard Mucinex can help but not sure I like the idea of unnecessary medicine. Should I try Preseed??
Hoping the OPK was wrong and that I haven't ovulated yet, maybe some cm will show up within the next few days.
I have been TTC for 9 months, after my 2nd miscarriage, and I'm just really losing hope.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Hi Kris725

When i was using OPK's we bd on & around & after 6 months still nothing, wasnt until my last cycle (that i fell pg with my son who is nearly 3) that i did BBT & it appeared i wasnt ovulating until 3-4 days after i got a positive on the OPK! Because i tracked my temp & carried on bd'ing i managed to hit it lol.. I never got alot of ewcm either, drinking lots of water generally is supposed to help but who knows.. I used Concieve Plus lube which is fertile friendly like ewcm. Have u googled on how to increase it?

Thank you for your response! I think I'm also probably ovulating later than the OPK says. Is conceive plus lube similar to preseed? I haven't tried either but I would like to. Gives me some hope that you got pregnant even when you didn't see ewcm!
I did google it, and seems like water, green tea, and grapefruit juice are popular things to try. It's strange because some cycles I have a lot and then go through phases like last month and now where I don't. Hoping that some sperm friendly lube will help!
Thanks again

Thanks! Definitely going to try grapefruit juice and more water. If no luck then I'll probably try Mucinex

Green tea and grapefruit juice. I tried everything when we were ttc ds so not sure what finally worked but this time all I did was increase water, switch from normal to green tea and drank grapefruit juice. Best ewcm ever!!

I find that consumption of any fruit juice increases my cm, although I did note that since I started juicing, my cm has been in abundance.
