  • it does something to your cervical mucous

  • I think what your talking about is guaficin..(not sure how to spell it,lol) But it is a decongestant, found in robitussin and mucinex. Mucinex has the highest amount of guaficin in it.. But it basically helps the cervical mucus to NOT kill off sperm when your not in your "fertile" phase. I think it does this by thinning it out, but I'm not sure. All I know about it is it gives me intolerable cotton mouth that is absolutely incurable! I found it's better to just do it when my cervical mucus is fertile instead of drugging myself to make better mucus. Sounds attractive, right?!?! :)
