    My OH tried it as apparently it's good for sperm... i haven't personally tried it but it's worth a shot.
    I may try it cause apparently it's very good on both female and male fertility! :) xxx

    Thanks for replying Bethany:hugs:
    Was beginning to think it was heading for thread heaven:dohh::rofl:

    It definately is supposed to be good for us girlies as well as our OH's. It is supposed to balance out hormones and improve egg health while giving the old mojo a boost:winkwink: The more I think about it the more I'm convincing myself into getting some. Just wondered if there was anyone out there that would say "yes the stuff is great!" or like AC "steer clear...it mucked my cycles up!"...althou to be fair I don't think mine could get anymore mucked up:dohh::rofl:

    Heaps of :dust: to you chick:hugs:

    I know this is just the promotional garb from a company that sells maca - but it's still good reading. Maca

    I bought some for my DH, and was going to take some myself - but with the pills and potions and POAS that I do, I thougt he could have something for himself. I'm not ruling out taking it in the future, but just now my cycles are regular and bloodwork shows I'm ovulating.

    FX it works for you.

    I'm taking Maca and so is my OH! We started this month (1st feb) so I'll let you know how I get on! lol

    I read it helps with fertility and I have my fingers crossed that it will help us! We're both feeling pretty cynical about it all at the moment but I read about it and felt positive at the time! lol

    We've got the tablet form and they smell and taste gross! I have no idea how anyone has the powder form! Blaaaaagh!

    I'm guessing we should continue taking it throughout the month as I know with evening primrose you stop after Ov.

    Yay MummyIwanabe!
    FX'd that it turns into your lucky cycle chick:winkwink:

    I also ordered the capsules as well....thought there would be more chance of hubby taking those than the powder:dohh:

    How many capsules are you taking a day? Do you mind me asking what made you start taking it?

    From what I've read hun it is safe to take throughout the whole of the cycle and even pregnancy....please keep in touch...I'd love to know how you get on:hugs::dust:

    Taking 3 capsules a day. I started taking it as after 15 months we starting to read more about natural remedies that may help. My mum suggested it as she'd read someone famous had suggested it to two of their friends and the next month they were pregnant! Now that would be amazin if it happened to us! Keep trying to stay positive but finding it difficult but I really hope Maca is the secret!

    I will continue taking it then throughout this month and let you know how I get on! Good luck to you too! Def good idea to get tablets not powder. The tablets smell in the bottle and even that makes me gag!!!

    Well if it's good enough for the rich and famous...it's good enough for us Hun:winkwink:

    My DH and I have also been trying for 18mths...would love a sticky :bfp: right now to get off this rollercoaster ride.

    I've just been reading more past posts on it....that's something to keep the positivity up hun...lots of :bfp:s and :baby:s out there. It seems thou that maca hasn't made it onto the boards recently, all the posts are about a year back....hoping we'll be the next two maca :bfp:s...:friends:

    Hi there. I'm new here but am very interested in Maca Root for fertility.

    I've had all sorts of issues with my menstrual cycles since May last year and have only just gone to the GP to sort it out. My mother saw an article in Take A Break last year about a lady who had trouble conceiving and used Maca Root. I didn't think too much of it as we were only still in the early months of TTC again. I saw the article about Anna Friel in the paper so I bought some. I've just started taking it from CD1 (2 days ago) so am hoping it starts to do the trick in sorting out my hormones and perhaps giving the libido a bit of a push too :shy:

    At the moment I'm just taking 2 tablets as it says on the bottle.

    Hope it all works out for us :thumbup:

    :hi: Holly
    Great to have you on board Hun:flower:
    Really hoping that it helps to sort us all out and get us those magical :bfp:

    On the pot I got it said to take 2-6 (500mg) tablets a day so I've gone in the middle and am taking 2 in the morning and 2 at lunchtime.
    My DH and I have also been trying for a while now (18mths). I started taking it yesterday which is going to be 1-2 days before O (I hope)...I had a positive opk this morning:yipee:

    Heaps of luck and :dust: chick...keep us posted on how you get on:hugs:

    Well here's my first little update on the effects of Maca Root.

    So I've been taking it since CD1 and today is CD4. CD2 & CD3 I felt my normal grumpy-pants menstrual self, no energy, just feeling :growlmad:

    So far today I feel really good, plenty of energy, excellent mood that even my leaking boiler didn't spoil :happydance:

    I just *feel* great :thumbup: - now all the reading I've done about Maca Root does say that it can raise energy levels so if this is already having an effect then FAB :yipee:
