Food to make you ovulate earlier


Hi girls

Just thought i would share some information with you, a friend of mine told me that eating sweet potato everyday is supposed to be really good for fertility, it is apparently some kind of miracle food. Last month she ovulated on around CD21 and this month she ate a whole sweet potato (about 18cm x 5cm) everyday from CD2 - CD11 and ending up ovulating on CD13. She was really amazed with the results. So if you are someone who doesnt ovulate until later on in your cycle, it could be worth giving a try. The other 2 foods she had been having were avocado and alfalfa sprouts.

Now Ive read the opposite. Native american indians used it as birth control and not to eat it till after you ovulate because it can cause your body to make more progesterone, causing some people to not ovulate. So much info and so confusing! I edited to add this link I found. This kinda of makes me wonder if we eat certain foods at the wrong time or our cycle, namley progesterone making ones, that we are inhibiting ourselves from getting pregnant. http://www.popline.org/docs/0898/063993.html

I had heard that you are not meant to eat pees because they can work as natural birth control, but my grandparents have eaten pees with every meal every day of their life and they have 4 kids, so who knows

In many countries....people interchange the worm YAMS with SWEET POTATO
Yams are actually found mainly in Asia, Africa, Oceania and can actually be difficult to find in Europe and North America.

Yams have more of a brown skin with a whitish inner, while sweet potatoes have a more brownish/red skin with a more orange inner.

It is actually Yams that are supposed to help in fertility.

I have ready that linseed (flax seed) can have the same effect. I have been eating some every day for Omega 3 but now wonder if I too am 'eating myself infertile'! :doh: Perhaps I just won't eat, drink or breathe anything until after I am pregnant!

I read that yams increase the chances of twins... and I read it in several different, unrelated locations. So, eat carefully!
