Hey here's some info I found online about Maca

you can take it whenever and I am PRETTY sure it's safe to take if you are preggos also, cause BellaBlu your symptons sound promising

What is this magical root and how does it work

It is a nourishing food for the endocrine system and is an aid to the granular system as well, including thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands, all involved in hormonal balance. Maca can impact key hormones in both the men and women to their advantage, but it doesn't contain hormones itself.

Maca helps nourish and stimulate the pituitary gland. It acts as a tonic for the hormonal system. When the pituitary gland is functioning optimally, the entire endocrine system, too, regains its balance, because pituitary gland is in control of the hormonal output of the other three glands involved.

For women, maca controls estrogen in the body. If a woman's estrogen levels are too high or too low, this can affect a woman's ability to become pregnant or to carry a fetus to term. If there's too much estrogen, progesterone levels may also reactively become too low. Therefore, if a woman takes maca, she may help increase her progesterone levels, which are essential to carrying a pregnancy to healthy term.

Maca may help:

Reestablish hormonal balance in women. Increase sex drive in both women and men. Protect eggs' health. Increase sperm count in ejaculate, increased seminal volume overall, and improve sperm's motility

Using maca

Maca comes in tincture, pills, capsules or powder. The powder is great to include in smoothies, while the capsules are convenient to make sure you get maca in your diet every day.

If you wish to purchase maca, make sure it's organically grown. Today, some of the areas in the Andes are contaminated by water from the mines, so if the maca you buy is nonorganic, you may be putting yourself in danger of lead or mercury contamination. Your maca root should also not be diluted with additives or fillers.

The maca sold here is 100% pure.

The recommended dosage: it is recommended that you take maca in a dosage of 2000 to 3000 mg a day. You also need to make sure you take it every day, for optimal results.

Remember that there will be no side effects when you take maca, because it's a food. If you take it in capsule format, three to six capsules a day will provide you an optimal dose. If you use the powder form, start with half a teaspoon of powder and work up to one tablespoon.

and this link is the actual Maca Powder I use

Thanks Kell!

It's so confusing all these pills! I'm not sure if something has set my ovulation back, but I've taken so many things this month it could be any of them!
I hope not, it's probably just my crappy cycle taking forever... if I ever ovulate and don't get BFP I'm getting clomid next month!

what else are you taken if you don't mind me asking? Just keep your chin up, the O will happen

I think I had to much stuff going on as well, so I cut back on the Multivitamins and right now only taken my pre-natals and Femaprin (ran out of the Maca Pills yesterday) I think I was getting to much B6 and the multi, femaprin both have the B6 in it....

it is ALL so confusing I wish I could get inside my body and shake things up..

Hi Kell - well, I got my smiley this morning!
If I don't get my BFP this month I am getting clomid I think!

I am also taking EPO, but I stopped because I thought I had ovulated earlier. Maca obviously. Pregnacare pre-conception tabs. Calcium tabs and occasionally Iron liquid (I'm anaemic sometimes).

It's actually not that many, but reading through all the threads and researching stuff makes my brain hurt! Then I can't remember what does what and what to take when!!

Yeh it would be great to be able to just see inside and sort it all out!!
