    I have been using for a year or so in powder form in my smoothies etc. when we were TTC I bought some high potency maca (can't remember the brand, sorry, but it claimed to be higher potency) and got DH to have some daily. We did fall pregnant soon after, but I was also getting acupuncture for fertility so who knows whether it had any effect? Can't hurt I say, it's good for overall health.

    Thanks heaps. We are ttc for our 3rd child and im exhausted all the time (last night fell asleep at 7pm as soon as the kids were in bed) so i saw it helps with fatigue. I have already had bloods and everything is fine not low in anything. I saw that people were trying maca and after googling i saw it helps with nearly everything and lots of people have had positive stories on mr google.

    I've tried it in the past. It certainly helped to "balance" my hormones. I'm pretty sure it's not recommended during pregnancy though. My FS told me to never use it after ovulation just incase of pregnancy.

    Myself and two friends partners all took it while ttc and all fell quickly after started. I fell the month after my partner started taking it.
    I don't know about helping with the fatigue though. Are you drinking enough water? I get very tired when I don't drink enough water

    We were taking maca tablets (bioglan brand) as the powder tasted so vile I couldn't stomach the smoothies. who knows whether it helped, we fell preg within a few months of ttc. as others have said, I guess it can't hurt.

    DH and I have just started taking maca powder in our shakes this month. Hope I can tell you that it had helped in the next month or 2
