Maca Root success?

Postby Cocacola22 » Wed Sep 30, 2015 10:46 am

Hi all, this is my first time posting in any forum. I have been trying to conceive for the past 4 months. This is cycle 5. I am set to O around October 6-9 but just in case, I am BDing every other day pretty much. I am taking the following:
Zinc
Vitamin E
Vitamin B complex
Prenatal with DHA
Fish Oil
Co Q10
Maca Root (just started Maca this cycle)

I wanted to know if anyone has had any BFP success by taking Maca Root?

Newlywed...I hope this is our monthly for sure! I have 3 kids, my last birth was 11 years ago. I am 35 and it's time for our last one to come into this world. I thought I would get pregnant right away so I hope nothing is wrong. I do know I am older but many women conceive at 35 and even older. I am going with the SMEP plan as well this month. Let me know how everything works for you! I have heard Maca works well. Fingers crossed!

Fingers and toes (but not legs :) ) crossed!

What CD are you on?

Today is CD10 and the OPK looks a little brighter this morning - guessing I'd be Oing by Monday or Tuesday.

According to SMEP, today is another BD so :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Sorry I didn't reply earlier!!!

I'm guessing you've started to wait for the testing date???? AF is due in 3 days for me and still BFNs :/

Btw - I'm in Doha, Qatar so I'm like super opposite time schedule, I'm guessing :)

I started taking maca root because I read it was good for fertility, but I stopped taking it after I ovulated because I was getting all these pregnancy/pms type symptoms so early. I was wondering if the maca root was contributing to the symptoms. My symptoms haven't subsided since taking the maca though and only got worse, so hopefully that's a good sign!

I'm 35, and I'm trying to conceive our first and this is our first month actively trying to conceive. I'm currently 6-7 dpo, and I used a OPK.
