I have been taking cassava for three months now! Where did you get yours? They can be pretty hard to find... i made the mistake of thinking yucca was the same thing and ended up taking something that doesn't even help for a month. i felt stupid after!

I'm taking a lot of supplements... Omega 3, DHA, royal jelly, evening primrose oil, folic acid, red raspberry leaf tea and prenatal gummies!

Wow...this is clearly a lost thread. I can see you got your Bfp Zoe. Congratulations!!!
Just found out about cassava supplements used for fertility on cd1 of my current cycle. I a bit upset cuz I've got loads of cassava at home. I actually come from the so called tribe where they say the percentage of twins is one of the highest in the world I feel so foolish not to have known this before. Even though I ordered some of tnhe capsules I am also taking a good amount of dry ground cassava as part of my diet everyday. My mom is a twin and she gave birth to twins so hopefully i'll be just as fertile. I'll see how it goes..here's hoping thus is our cycle....

Leigh...did you have any side effects from the cassava. I seem to be having some..

I haven't had any side effects yet. I've been taking them for three months now. The only "side effect" (if yu can call it that) is that if I take it on an empty tummy I burp a funny taste, so now I am just sure to drink plenty of water and have a snack with it or take it at meals. What kind of side effects are you having?

Where did you get yours? My first bottle I got from the foreverblessed place, but I wasn't convinced they were the real thing so I tossed them out and ordered from the other place. I didn't even take any of them though, but compared to the ones I have now, they look VERY different from one another...

Did you grow up eating cassava? Do you like it? I tried it, but I wasn't too fond of the taste... Definitely not fond enough to force myself to have some every day, which is why I went for the capsules instead.

Cassava For Twins


Hi there! Wanted you gals to know that I've been boiling half of a cassava (small sized) for one hour every single night for 3 months now, and only eat the skin! My older kids crack up at me and sit to watch me choke it down. I was told by my cousin (obgyn) that its the skin we need. I have my hubby stop every Tuesday at an ethnic grocery store and buy 3 cassava's a week. We hope to conceive twins this September. I was told other things to do as well by my cousin. First time to ever be on a forum!!!

Cassava is a tropical yam. You can get it at ethnic stores and even Publix (from the south). It's a veggie (root). Every night I boil half of a small one for one exact hour and then later when cooled eat the skin (bark) only. Thats the part that makes the chemical to help you hyperovulate. It's not too nasty, haha. It is...but I just hurry and eat it while my teenagers laugh at me. It's suppose to really help with twins. You can order capsules online, but its pricey, and you get more bark (peeling) by doing it the good ole fashioned way yourself.

Ive had cassava cakes and cassava fries... I don't really like them. The capsules are easier for me, but to each his own!

YES I am taking cassava! I looked at the ForeverBlessed place too but it just looked like white powder in the capsules, I ended up going with the ones at Cassavashop. I got a coupon code on retailmenot for 10%, 10FORGOS. I was taking one a day but now that they sell huge bottles for cheaper on the website I upped it to 4 a day. LOL

Gossling, it's smart what you're doing! It is sooooo nasty to eat that bark every stinkin' night! We just have cassava every where down here in the deep south. That's awesome you can take 4 too! What is that, like 2000mg? When are you gonna try for twins? Soon? We are end of Sept or first of Oct. My body is crazy still from nursing, so I still have scattered periods. I just want a June baby. Being a momma to a litter, haha, it'll be easier to have a summertime baby. I just joined here too. I look around at tips to conceive twins.
