Macafem + BFP ??

Hello Ladies! Hoping someone can help me out. I've been taking Macafem (herbal supplement to balance hormones) for about 45 days. I just got a BFP this morning. Should I stop taking the MacaFem? I am afraid if I stop taking them my hormones will do a nose dive and I risk losing this baby (had a 7 week loss in 2009, then rainbow baby born 2010) Looks like I am about 4 weeks now. TIA

My Mood:
I could be wrong but I *think* you're supposed to taper off of Maca over the next couple weeks.
Congrats on your BFP!!

Thanks! Yeah, I just finished a bottle and was thinking about not opening a new one, but didn't know if "cold turkey" could cause a problem, I've already only been doing 1 or two pills a day so I'm not even really getting the whole amount. I think I'll just stick with my prenatals from here on out
