I'm wondering if anybody knows if you can self-diagnose hostile cervical mucus? I've noticed that since my daughter was born 18 months ago, whenever I have a bowel movement where I have to bear down harder, I'll get a line of what looks to be CM coming out. It changes in appearance with my cycle (opaque to EW then back to opaque), but I'm wondering if this means I have "hostile" CM, or if this is just a side effect of my cervix being stretched from childbirth? We've been TTC since Feb, so I'm trying to figure everything out before we have to "give up" and go back to the RE (it took us about 2 years to conceive my daughter, and saw the RE RIGHT before I got pregnant). I know I can take Guafenisen, but I'm worried about taking it if I DON'T have a CM problem? Any insight?
