When I was TTC my #3, I took 1000mg/day maca capsules. I had extreme amounts of CM - and conceived the first cycle that I used maca. Other than that, I had no effects from maca.
Now, I'm TTC my #4 and started taking maca a few days ago (at the beginning of my cycle). First, I used the Navitas maca powder. I started at 1 tablespoon a day - resulting in a migraine. Then I reduced to 1 teaspoon a day - and still got a migraine. Yesterday, I only took 1000mg of maca capsules - just like when TTC my #3. During the night I developed a migraine. (FWIW, all of my maca migraines become very intense during the night.)
Does anyone have ideas about what could be wrong with me? Why is maca causing migraines for me when it never did before?
I am gluten intolerant / gluten free now, but I don't think that maca contains gluten. Excedrin Migraine works right away for the maca-induced migraines, though I really hate taking that when TTC.
Thanks so much!
