  • Taking an expectorant (cough syrup, plain tussin, no CF or DM or any other letters after it) will increase mucus production. It increases it everywhere, though, so don't be surprised if you get a runny nose, and you can't take any antihistamine like Benadryl or anything, so you'll have to deal with it.

  • I was able to find this on google...hope it helps.

    Evening Primrose Oil or EPO helps women to produce more fertile quality cervical fluid also known as “egg white cervical mucus”. This type of cervical fluid is fertile, thin, watery, clear and “stretchy” and easily aids the sperm to swim through the uterus and into the fallopian tube, and to the egg. Also, this type of fluid helps the sperm to stay alive for up to five days inside the fallopian tube, thus enabling conception to happen even if you don’t have intercourse again by the time ovulation occurs.
