Is Maca safe while breastfeeding?

Title really says it all. I only bf twice a day a little more on weekends. He's 16 months old. I'm having some spotting and breakthrough bleeding and wondering if my hormones are out of whack but I want it to be safe.

There have been no scientific studies on Maca during breastfeeding. Women have been known to take it during lactation but there is nothing definitive to tell you whether it is safe for you or your baby.

I took it, along with vitax, while I was still nursing...BUT my nurser was 2.5 & I was trying to induce a period. It worked, but took about 4 months.
