May TTC w/ Maca - Page 13

post #241 of 264
I'm reading through these threads.... I'm very interested in TTCing with maca!! At this point I figure it can't hurt. (Baby#1 took IVF to conceive... and the waiting to conceive again is horrible!)

I've given up
But my powder is staring me down, so I may start up again. It certainly didn't hurt and we had quite a good graduation rate.

I just got pg, this is my second time getting pg while on a combo of maca and vitex. I took 1 tablespoon to get pg with DD2, I started off this time taking 2 tablespoons, I've come to the conclusion that with maca, less is more. 2 didn't work well, so I backed down to 1, and got pg that next cycle.


ETA: I still had no EWCM, but it obviously didn't matter!

Hmmmmmm. I "think" it lasted us a little over a month & that was w/ DH taking 2TBS a day & me taking about 1 TBS ( more or less) a day. some days I just had more or less depending on my mood. (mostly 2 tsp- 1 TBS though.

Well my order should be here this week. I am hoping I am already PG and I won't need it
post #254 of 264
Got my Maca powder will start it tomorrow. I am a little afraid to taste it, I was taking capsules before.

This thread is long so I havent read through the whole thing yet- can someone tell me if its OK to start maca during the 2ww? I just heard about it, I'm 5dpo and it sounds great but I dont want to start anything that might prevent the bfp.

Thanks!

Wow, this tread is long. Can someone summerize it all up for me. So maca is helpful for TTC? Do I have to take it in powder or capsul form? Who takes it, me or DH? How much do I take?
Thanks

Any suggestions??

My husband and I wanted to get a head start on TTC but it has been a lot harder than I thought to get pregnant, so that is why I'm here.
I just got off Birth Control in January 09. I just started Maca so it can regulate me and make me start my period since I haven't had a "normal" period yet so that what keeps leading me to believe that I am pregnant but the preg tests keep coming out negative.
I either want my period to come on or be pregnant this waiting game is so annoying. I've had spotting to light blood that only lasts when I wipe so I don't know if that’s my period or that is implantation bleeding.
If anyone has suggestions or stories about their Maca journey I would love to hear them and will be open to anything thanks.

I started taking Maca (750mg caps 2/day) Apr 4 (also taking a VitB complex w Folic Acid and a multi vit). I am going to test on mother's day if AF doesn't show her face before then. If AF does show then I will begin a combo with Vitex.
