    I believe it increases ewcm, which is said to sway blue.

    All of the above!

    And yes, black tea is also good. Maybe not quite AS good but black tea is the one constant between all four of my boys.

    Please help me answer your questions - if I don't get back to your post in the sway forums within a few days, please BUMP your post!!

    PLEASE note the "within a few days" in the above statement. I cannot give same day responses except for Custom Swayers and bumping a post 10 times within 1-2 days of posting it is not going to make me answer it any quicker.

    I asked about green tea for DH in a girl sway, but Atomic gave a detailed response which you might find useful:

    Here is what I wrote on that thread that zanacal linked to for those who don't read links - please keep in mind that this was on the pink swaying board and is kinda tailored to pink swayers.

    "The main reason why the Blue Ladies drink green tea is because it's a phytoestrogen and some people believe it acts as an estrogen in the body, in effect raising estrogen. (I'm not entirely sure that's the case - evidence indicates that some phytoestrogens compete with/interfere with the body's natural estrogen and in effect LOWER estrogen.) So if that evidence is wrong, then your DH may raise his estrogen level by drinking it.

    The other thing that I found interesting is that green tea has been proven to lower cholesterol, and cholesterol is the building block of testosterone. Lowering cholesterol would lower estrogen as well because it's also made up of cholesterol, but IF the traditional swaying lore is correct and the phytoestrogen in the green tea acts as an estrogen, then it could be the best of both worlds (note - best of both worlds FOR PINK) - lowering cholesterol and thereby lowering testosterone, while the phytoestrogen acts as estrogen and makes up for any lowering of estrogen that results from the lower cholesterol. (note - would therefore not be as good an idea for blue.)

    The downside is that green tea is super healthy and has so many other micronutrients in it that probably boost fertility and sway blue. Green tea DOES have caffeine as well BTW.

    Caffeine does speed up the sperm but just because sperm is faster, I'm very far from sure that has been actually proven to translate to more males being conceived (and in fact the opposite may be true) http://www.newscientist.com/article/...-speed-up.html http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1168707

    Arizona has a new line of green tea "stix" - those little powders you can mix in a water bottle - and they are artificially sweetened. My DH has been taking them in his lunch sometimes because he's trying to go off of coffee, and says they are ok. http://www.drinkarizona.com/index_na...#carousel_stix (this has got to be one of the most annoying websites ever!!!)"

    FWIW my husband has drunk green tea off and on and has 4 boys...
