Probably not: That's sort of like asking if a potato is similar to a vitamin supplement. Neither maca root nor fertility blend are single items (several manufacturers put those words on their labels). Neither maca root nor fertility blend are medications. They are over-the-counter supplements, which means little or no testing has been done, and nobody really knows for sure what the effects or side effects are.

See below: No maca is not similar to fertility blend - and if you are trying to get pregnant - see an ob/gyn prior to getting pregnant.
