    I swear by maca. I ttc for 11 months...the 12 cycle I took maca...fully thinking it wouldnt work I went into my OB, he said I had "unexplained" infertility and gave me clomid to try as soon as AF showed up. Well AF never showed, the clomid is still sitting in my bathroom!! so yeah fully believe in the stuff :)


    And the pineapple is yummy but I dont know how people can eat two-four of them...my poor tongue hurts already LOL and Im not even half way through yet!! lol

    I can't eat more than a few pieces because it burns my mouth up and gives me lie bumps on my tongue. lol Good luck though :)

    Ive read different things, some say they have eaten one, or just a half of one fresh pineapple and it worked...others say 3-4 whole fresh pineapples. I've got ONE, Im not going any more then that. :D

    I love pineapple at the mo and will generally have 1/2 one each day just for pleasure have figured it's a much healthier craving than the family size galaxy bars I was having!

    Good luck and enjoy! I can barely eat a few pieces of pineapple before my tongue gets all sore and feels like it's on fire.

    My friend had one fresh pineapple a day and the midwife told her to watch next time as she gave birth sooo quickley they said she would have to watch she didnt end up givin birth in the car!! lol lucky her. I think it will give me lots of heartburn though :( Good luck xx

    Has to be fresh as the part that is said to help you go into labor is lost during canning. I had DH pick one up for me, and I dont think it was quite ripe yet as it killed my tongue. was only able to eat about a quarter of it lol and it didnt really do anything for me other then taste really yummy :D So since it is says you have to eat a FEW whole pineapples for it to work I would look up how to pick a ripe one :) the more ripe it is the less it will hurt your mouth and tongue :kiss:
