This is my first month taking maca, since CD2, and I o'd yesterday on CD12. This is only my second month charting, so I can't say for sure
, but this will be an approximately 26-day cycle (or a BFP, *fingers crossed*) which is shorter than my usual 28-30 day cycle and the only thing I'm doing differently this cycle is taking maca. Also, I started with an OPK on CD10 because I was feeling very wet and had EWCM, which surprised me so early on, but it was negative. Then, on CD 11 I took another OPK in the afternoon, after holding my pee for 4 hours (ouch), and I had a really dark positive line, darker than ever before. I would say start with your OPK if you're feeling like you might be Oing soon.
I'm finding this experiment to be fascinating and I'm really hopeful that we'll start seeing a lot of BFPs.
