@auntstephie321 - Even though you don't think you have PCOS (which you may or may not, as you have a few symptoms that may or may not be connected), I would still pop over to the PCOS group to ask this question. I know it has been discussed there before with several who have used it for hormone regulation and as a conception aid. Even though you don't have all the same issues some of those ladies do, you do have a lot of hormone related things in common.http://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/group/3070-p-c-o-sis

My experience: I took maca for almost 2 years as part of my morning smoothie routine 7 days a week (maca + amazing grass + hemp protein + raw cacao + milk substitute), with an inositol chaser for year 2...and it did not have any positive benefits for me for conception or improvement of menstrual irregularities (ended up eventually being diagnosed with PCOS).
I didn't mind the taste, I actually liked it. There was maybe a slight energy boost over just the Amazing Grass + cacao...but not enough to justify the carb increase for me (or added expense).
LCHF + Inositol + Metformin was apparently the secret to unlocking my iron-clad ovaries after nearly 6 years of trying to conceive . (During this time, I was still doing daily protein shakes for breakfast most mornings of the week-- but no maca other than the small % that is in Amazing Grass). I'm currently 24weeks pregnant...and so far so good! [knocks on wood]

My husband has been on maca for probably 6 months now for cholesterol balancing. He is almost 50 and definitely has much more interest in sex when he takes his maca. No negative side effects have been noted so far.
