    Exclamation No Peas It Seems!

    I was having a look at the Conceive Plus lubricant website, and read an interesting article on things to avoid when TTC. It turns out that there's some chemical in peas that reduces fertility! This is what the site says:
    Peas: A chemical in peas have anti-fertility effects for both men and women. Scientists discovered that the birth rate in Tibet was considerably lower than other parts of the world. The cause was found to be peas, a staple food for the population. In clinical trials performed in the USA women were given the chemical (in capsule form) found in peas and pregnancies dropped by 60%. In men sperm rates were slashed by 50% too.


    DH and I will be going "pea free" for a while, methinks!

    So it is my DH fault we have so many children. He hates peas so I never cook them. I knew it was his fault. LOL
