Has anyone heard of maca and if it works? I was 2 weeks late on my period (normal for me) and as soon as I started taking the maca I got mine. I dont know if it really helps or not. I have been TTC for 5 years now and my sister for about 9 years. I cant afford invitro or any high dollar fertlilty treatment. All my sonograms and hormone test were normal. The docs dont know why I cant get pregnant.....
Hi there :) I am very interested in Maca myself. Btw, I am not trying to get pregnant by any means, I am only taking the supplement in the hopes of stabilizing my hormones. I found your post interesting because I started taking Maca about the first of April. I should have started my period on or about the 8th, but I never got it. So I am supposed to start my period in about 5 days, but still, I don't feel crampy and have no breast tenderness like usual and also am not experiencing any moodiness. I am usually so depressed and manic for a week before my period starts. I am having trouble finding information on the internet regarding the effects of Maca on your cycle. Aside from the problems with my cycle, I feel great!! I have a ton of energy and I am in such a great mood all the time now, so much so that I almost wonder if this is right ? I have always had trouble with mood swings and depression and for the first time in my life, I don't. I love it but am not used to it. I'd love to talk to someone else who is also taking Maca. Has it affected your mood at all?
