    Hi, thanks for your post.

    We have no information in our database regarding Maca root, nor do we have any anecdotes from our call center at any point in the last 4 years. There are no published studies exploring Maca's safety in pregnancy or breastfeeding. There is one small study from 2008 (cited below) suggesting that high-dose Maca root is effective in relieving the sexual side effects of SSRIs.

    Please call us at the InfantRisk Center if we can help you any further.*(806)352-2519

    Maca- Lepidium meyenii and breastfeeding

    I have a nursing mom (induced lactation for adopted daughter) who wants to start Maca for libido. I can only find a reference in the 2006 Natural Medicines database stating there is insufficient reliable evidence for it's use. Anyone with more information?
