I have not tried this personally but when I was at Whole Foods they told me macca is like “gold” for fertility. But they said that usually only men take it? So I asked if that increased sperm count or something and they said it makes men more “excited”. It seemed conflicting to me, so maybe the person I was speaking to didn’t know jack. lol

I am curious but I do not have PCOS. I say give it a shot! 🙂 Best to you!

My boyfriend’s mom takes powdered macca root to help with mood swings from menopause. She does tend to lose her shit when she forgets to take some in the morning, but that may be the placebo effect, or a handy excuse. 

First hand accounts aren’t very useful. What you need to do is find some placebo controlled double blind studies to see if Mecca root may be effective in helping fertility.

I can’t say if it helped me actually get pregnant or not and I don’t have pcos, but I took maca to increase cm and shorten my cycle. It definitely increased my cm and my cycle went from 36 days down to 32 the first cycle and I got my BFP the second cycle.
