TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

How long did it take you before you got pregnant when taking the Cassava? Can you take it everyday? Did you really get pregnant with twins? I looked at the foreverblessed.com site but I feel like it didn't give enough info for me. Any other information you have please provide it. My husband's family is from Africa so they eat this a lot so I am familair with Cassava just not it getting people pregnant.

This is a repost from another site:

It is acutally true it helps with twins. I am acutally from Nigeria and the Yorubas are known for high rate of twins due to the high consumption of wild yams. Yucca is similar to yam and should have the same effect but I'm not aware about that.The ingredients in the yams acutally triggers the release of more eggs thereby leading to twins. Mostly eat a special flour called Amala, which is specially made and Yourbas love it. Wild Yam tuber can be purchased from a spanish store but I usually get Amala flour from african stores and also some jamaican stores which are hard to find. We have so many secrets as to conceiving twins and children, which I can give you some tips. First would be to make sure your hormones are balanced, well rested. 
Since I have been living in the US I forgot my roots but now that I'm married I'm actually going back to tips and eating and resting the way we do. Rest is very crucial, eat lots of greens-broc,spinach,collards. But there is a special green called cassava leaves, most women take it and within 1-2yrs actually conceive. Before I got preg my hubby's friends, their wives ate cassava leaves every week consistently and within 1 yr they both got pregnant again. For Real. Cassava Leaves also Called Feuilles de Manioc or Pondu(in Congo and french speaking african countries)and Eat it mostly with fish and several recipes. 
Causes of fertility problems are complex and vary from woman to woman as well as from couple to couple. However, many women have used the help of certain herbs to establish pregnancy with very good results and without the side effects often associated with fertility drug. Wild Yam does not work for everyone but its not a sin to try. Make sure You only eat it AFTER OVULATION.If taken before it can actually prevent ovulation. Take it on days when you start ovulating. It also increases progesterone which is crucial to keep pregnancy. Most african women who are pregnant eat it almost every week with lots of fish and greens,which also helps to prevent miscarriage.We dance with our hips and have sex with motion, slow romba, so helps with quick delivery of sperm to it's destination and most importantly fulfillment. There is also a special recipe called Edikaikong soup- people would tell you not to cook this unless you want to get preg men usually eat it and women eat it also but key is to have sex on that day. Recipes are available on the sites below and also if you have facebook, a group called "so you think you can cook", has pictures foods, tips on cooking and recipes.You can purchase flour from - www.afrimartonline.com and other special herbs. Also if you really do not want to cook the wild yam, there is actually a tea from traditional medicinals called -Women's Liberty it has wild yam extract in it also, which can help you stay consistent. I am not consisitent in wating it so this is acutally helping me too. lol.There are so many tips but I hope this helps. Post if u have any comment, concerns or suggestions

I am going to try herbs and teas chinese medicine accupuncture and massage. I am trying to change my lifestyle to a more natural way, ofcourse IVF is always an option but I would much rather prepare my body for pregnancy to see if this helps. It proves to have helped alot of women and is worth a shot.

I initially ordered from foreverblessed, but it was really sketchy. The label was torn halfway off... The powder looked like (and tasted like) some kind of flour. No safety seals, and to top it off, there was no way to contact customer service. :-/

The other site is www.cassavashop.com If you search around google there are some coupon codes for it, I think... I can't remember what the code was off the top of my head right now.

As far as taking it, you're supposed to take it every day, preferably in advance to TTCing. It's supposed to reach peak benefit after four to six months. I've been taking mine since January and we were planning to try in August, but we're going on a vacation and will probably try either when we get back, or after the holidays. Not sure when. I take six capsules a day (two with each meal). I'm not trying yet, but it has helped to regulate my cycles. I used to be all over the place with cycles as short as 17 days and cycles as long as 56. After a couple months on cassava, I regulated out to 32-35 days.
