For those of you who take Maca how much do you take? Both DH and I are going to start but I'm not sure how much we need to take.

My Ovulation Chart

Me (Sara): 28 Normal, Unexplained Infertility, 50mg of Clomid to see if it will help!

DH (Bryan): 31 Diagnosed with varicocele and low testosterone. Normal count with low motility. Using Clomid to try and increase numbers. All tests normal as of Jan 2014!

June 2014: 50mg Clomid= BFN
July 2014: 50mg Clomid= BFN
August 2014: 100mg Clomid= BFN
September 2014: 100mg Clomid=BFN
October 2014: 100mg Clomid=BFN

Acupunture started October 2014

TTC #2 since May 2013

I was told that for fertility issues you eventually want to work up to 2-3 teaspoons a day each. DH and I take about 1.5 - 2 tsps a day, and we take it about 5 days out of the week. Not sure how scientific this is, but this is what we do. :) I feel good about adding maca as a balanced part of our diet, though we may not be taking enough for therapeutic purposes.
ME 34, "normal" // DH 35, "normal"
NTNP #1 since March 2009 // TTC #1 since Jan 2010
Diagnosed w/ "unexplained infertility"
~ 50 mg Clomid, March 2011 to July 2011
~ 1st IUI, June 2011 - BFN
~ Appointment w/ RE October 2011. Until then, and possibly after, we'll be taking a natural approach.
