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?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Maca is not known for doing anything productive.
If you think you are pregnant check a pregnancy test. If negative consider seeing a doctor to discuss irregular menstrual cycles.

There are some small studies suggesting that Maca may increase spermatogenesis and sperm motility in men: http://tinyurl.com/kfgbcx2 It may also increase sexual desire in men: http://tinyurl.com/mztrdt2 This differs markedly from results in women, which we know very little about.
