Can the combination of goat weed, geritol, and maca root help me get pregnant if I have a hormone surge?
No: Every culture has some rather unique ideas on how to help women get pregnant, which shows how much we humans value babies and the ability to have lots of them.

Maca is also known as "peruvian ginseng" because as a folk remedy it is supposed to increase stamina, energy, & sexual function.

Already taking folic acid for abt 4 months already and not yet pregnant, is it really good? Taking maca too
Keep taking it: Any woman who is trying to get pregnant (or could get pregnant) should take Folic Acid supplements. The fetus needs Folic Acid for brain development, which happens very early in pregnancy before a woman even knows she's pregnant. So the only way to make sure your baby gets it is to take it while you're trying to get pregnant. ...Read more
Is it okay to take maca root capsules and prenatal pills at the same time though I'm not pregnant or tryin to have a baby anytime soon. I'm 22 yrs old?
Yes: If you were trying to get pregnant I would advise against maca root simply because there is not enough information about its safety. Prenatal pills contain a lot of iron which can be constipating if you don't need it. Consider a regular multivitamin if the extra iron is not required. ...Read more

NO: Take no medications, including herbal medications, without discussing them with your doctor during pregnancy. Any substance that has an effect on the body is called a drug, whether or not you need a prescription to get it. There are no drugs which baby needs, except perhaps for extra vitamins and iron. An occasional Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain is generally ok, but don't take anything else. Eat healthy. ...Read more

I have irregular periods. I bleed all the time. I began taking maca for a week and now I am noticing pregnancy symptoms. Can maca increase breast size?
I don't know if this is medical or not. But I'm wondering if it's possible to get pregnant even if you're not ovulating. I learned that if you have unprotected sex, no matter what day of the month it is, you will get pregnant.
Yes,: Yes, that is a very good question. It is impossible to know exactly when a woman ovulates. Typically, it is about two weeks after the first day of her last period, but this varies a great deal. If the hormones are "out of whack", so to speak, then ovulation is very difficult to predict. Some women also have irregular periods or even spotting that is not actually their period, which also makes it difficult to predict. Therefore, you are right; unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy on almost any day of the cycle. ...Read more
I am not sure if you: Will become pregnant if you use pre seed. But I know that some fertility clinics use it. What is more important is timing when you have sex to correlate with ovulation.
