It is said that you can use wild yam as Birth Control. You want to drink a tea made of it at least 3 times a day. Do a Google search on it and you should find more info. You can contact a Midwife and talk to them about natural birth control. * There are herbs that might prevent ovulation, or delay it. check our for info in herbs. Wild yam, itself, DOES NOT prevent pregnancy. Wild yam can be chemically altered to mimic progesterone (progestin). This can be bought at a health-food store, as a cream, and does work as effective birth control.
