AF IS GONE! WOOP WOOP.

I am finally ready to BD haha whether I'm ovulating or not, I really missed sex. I hate that I have to wait 10-12 days until I O but thats okay hopefully it'll go fast. So ready to kick this cycles ass.

Lots of grapefruit juice, whole milk, and spinach. NOM.

Also, does anyone know about wild yam? Is it helpful in TTC? Thoughts would be appreciated :)

I know that cassava root (a specific kind of wild yam found in Africa, sold mostly as supplements in capsule form in the U.S.) is supposed to increase your chance of getting pg with twins.

I take Cassave root - I could only find it online. It is suppose to induce hyper ovulation (ie have multiples). I have heard Wild Yam is better to just promote ovulation instead of hyperovulation but not sure. You can buy Wild Yam in stores though.
