How to Improve Cervical Mucus: 8 Ways

Cervical mucus plays a huge role in the fertilization process, sheltering the sperm on its way to the egg. Find these 8 great all-natural ways to improve your cervical mucus.

Cervical mucus is the fluid that is secreted from the woman’s cervix. During the ovulation time span this mucus will become thin and stretchy and have the color and consistency of an egg white. The cervical mucus plays a role in the fertilization process. This sticky mucus shelters the sperm on its way to the egg. There the fertilization will take place, assuming that the sperm is healthy as well as the egg. Some women have a hard time with the amount of cervical mucus they produce. There are ways to improve the amount and health of your cervical mucus. Here we will discuss both of these options. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Cut the nicotine

Nicotine can begin to decrease your body fluids, including cervical mucus. This needs to be cut completely, especially if you are trying to get pregnant.

Slow down on the caffeine

Ever noticed how you may have a soda and shortly after that you are thirsty and want another soda? The ingredients in soda and caffeine can cause dehydration, making you thirstier because your body is running low on fluids; this includes your cervical mucus.

Drink more water

The average person should drink sixty-four ounces of water per day. That is eight glasses of eight ounces of water. Water is good for the body anyway; when you are trying to conceive (and even after you have) water is that much more important. Your body needs replenishment in order to create the cervical mucus that is needed for fertilization.

Take guaifenesin

This can be found in over the counter cough medications like Robitussin and is actually used by some women to increase cervical mucus. If you chose this route please use the plain kind (ask your pharmacist) and take two teaspoons two times a day.

Have a healthy weight

Being over or under weight can take a toll on the body in any aspect; but especially when you are trying to conceive. Keep a healthy weight so your body’s chemistry and hormone levels stay balanced. A balanced body is a happy body!

Cut the outside influences

Do you use the scented feminine care products? Or the scented toilet paper? Take frequent bubble baths? These products all contain chemicals that may interfere with your body’s natural chemistry and can cause outside influence on your cervical mucus. Cut these big chemical products to improve your chances of more cervical mucus.

Evening primrose oil

This can actually be used to both improve and increase your cervical mucus but it is more known for improving the overall health of it, making it easier for the sperm to travel in it safely. This is a fatty acid that helps to improve the mucus and create more egg white type mucus.

Vitamin C

This vitamin is used for almost everything nowadays; however, it is proven to be effective in creating more “water like” cervical mucus; which in turns makes more. However, it is in the “improve” category because if it is taken with grapeseed oil it is said to make the mucus healthier and the vitamin C more effective in the body.

If these options fail speak with your doctor about further options.

    Getting pregnant can be quite difficult when you have irregular periods since you can’t track your ovulation days very well. Irregular menstrual cycles are normally due to uncontrolled hormonal levels, and can be treated in various ways. It is best that you take fertility supplements to help induce your menstruation; taking fertility supplements can as well enhance your body’s fertility.

    We have been trying for 2 years now. 2 IUI’s have already been failed. I am 25 and we have not used any kind of pills before to prevent pregnancy…Just only a few days before, I have noticed a lack of Cervical mucus and it remains dry everytime even in my peak fertile days, I have a very regular 28 days cycle and we try every other day during those time. What can be the reason for not conceiving ? I have 1 blocked Fallopian tube but it should not hamper as the other one is completely functional !!!

    Please advise and help !

    I had sex last night for the first time for both of us in 7 months, I have
    regular periods that last a full 7 days, I just got over my period 3 days ago and get it 23-26 days after the first day of my period. The condom broke just before……. And he had ALOT of semen. It’s the next day and I have nausea and cramping in my right ovaries,…….. I was pregnant once before and miscarried but I had morning sickness after 2 weeks before I tested positive. It was over 10 yrs ago but so I don’t remember if I was nauseous right away. Anyways, I’m 35 and so is he. Reunited first lives after a decade. The only time we didn’t use a condom and I was on birth control ( the first time I got pregnant) I didn’t know my antibiotics effected my pill….. Is it possible I’m pregnant after our first night together in over a decade? Can nausea happen so soon? Should I consider the plan b pill? Does it even work if the sperm and egg have met already ?
