Maca root

Hi ladies! It's been a bit since I posted. A little update; I've been struggling with a short leutal phase. For 3 months it's been 11 days long. This month I made it to 14dpo! (I think, I only have a dotted O line) and now I'm waiting on af (tested twice, BFNs.. blech)

This month we're trying something different. This is month 9!
I'm ordering some maca root powder. I've read it helps balance hormones and boost fertility. Has anyone given it a try? I'm curious if there are any side effects, and even more curious as to weather or not it worked wonders on anyone. I'd love for this to be our month.
Thanks in advace. Good luck ladies!

I took it. It made me ovulate on time first month. Got pregnant first month.

This is my first month on baby 2 and I ovulated earlier. I don't know if I'm pregnant or not yet

Awesome! I got pregnant the first month with DD, I wasn't on anything except a prenate. I thought baby 2 would be just as easy, lol.

I already ordered it in addition to a gelatin collagen mix. I'll be starting both this cycle.
Good thoughts, good thoughts!
