all the things I've tried over 22 years Guiafinessin has helped me the most. Has been helpful with muscle pain and fatigue. I take 2 mucinex pills daily.
This study suggests that guaifenesin may be a better treatment than placebo for dysmenorrhea pain and associated constitutional symptoms, weakness, faintness, and limitations of activities of daily living.
This pilot study suggests that guaifenesin is a potential low-cost, low-risk treatment modality for dysmenorrhea and could be beneficial for patients unwilling or unable to tolerate current therapies, such as oral contraceptives, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, other analgesics, or surgery. Studies to further delineate guaifenesin's benefit and, if present, its mechanism of action in the treatment of dysmenorrhea may assist a large population of women not fully treated at present and could have implications for the treatment of causes for secondary dysmenorrhea, such as endometriosis.
Quite simple, guaifenesin helps to loosen all mucus - not just that found in the bronchial tubes! The fact is that guaifenesin helps to loosen up mucus that's already there. It stands to reason, that if taken around ovulation time, it will help to loosen up the cervical mucus, making it more conducive for the sperm to move through.
Of course it is. People are desparate though. Perhaps you would prefer my Thalidomide thread . . .
I guess I would just like to see that this place doesn't turn into another one of the hundreds of websites that talk about false cures.
