Does Maca vitamins increase sexual desire in women?

I have been on Depo Provera birth control method for about 3 1/2 months now. I just recently recieved my second assigned shot about a few days ago. I notice that my sexual desire has decreased a little and looking into taking Maca vitamins to help boost it. Doing a little research I have noticed that Maca is suppose to enhance fertility as well as sexual desire. Is taking Maca vitamins lower my effectivness on my birth control since they are both oppoiste? I will like to know because I really don't want to get pregnant right now even if my chances are 50/50.

Hi,

Macaroni powder made from Peruvian macaroni root plant is available at local health stores or blended into the smoothies at your juice shop. You can use it at home. This increases sexual desire, semen production, smooths symptoms of menopause and improves your mental health. It increases libido in men, it help in mood boosting, anxiety easing and gives energy. It reduce blood pressure, and depression in menopausal age. Dose is 1 tsp in one cup of milk with half tsp ground cinnamon and honey and pinch of salt. Warm this and drink it for 6 to 12 weeks. In thyroid, take with caution, it interferes with thyroid function.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
