Calcium/Magnesium for supply?

Ok so I *think* I may be having a cycle... I've got the suddenly tender nipples, plus very light spotting/pink on the TP. This happened last month too but I blew it off as I was still within the normal range for bleeding before it's considered AF...

Anyway, I've seen Cal/Mag suggested to help prevent the O and cycle dip (which I don't think I have, we growth spurted over the weekend and now my supply is fine)... Can it help with supply all the time? I currently take 160mg of domperidone and 12 fenugreek a day... And am getting ready to add back in the shatavari and omega complex (trying to enrich my milk) and am going to add borage oil for more healthy fat. I figure what's 3 more capsules if the Cal/Mag will help with the sore nipples once a month and my supply.

BTW - our latch is fine... I keep checking it. I've started using lanolin again and doing gel packs in my bra to help with the discomfort. It's not yeast, we've BTDT...
