I've had 4 pregnancies while using stevia. I don't think it would work as birth control for us.frogmammy said:I saw somewhere, just in passing, that stevia lowered sperm counts...didn't get details or anything. Anyone know anything about this? Might make a good natural method of birth control if it does!
I have always used it purchased up until now. I clipped off several leaves a few weeks ago, and left them to air dry. This weekend, I crushed them loosely and have used them in my tea the last two days. I used about 1/2 tsp of loosely crushed leaves, which was plenty to sweeten my large cup of tea, when steeped with the loose tea. I believe it will take some experimenting to get the right amount, and I'd like to get the stevia ground into a powder so that measurements could be more accurate. But at least I know it works.ChickenMom said:Dawn, do you use the plant or do you buy it processed?
