Arrow Galactogogues and ovulation?

I know that domperidone can interfere with ovulation and alter menstrual cycles if your cycles have returned after birth. Can other galactogogues (I'm curious about fenugreek, in particular) have this same effect?

Herbs are not likely to have an effect on your cycle. But every woman's body is different; I stopped domperidone in April 2008 and then continued my herbs (fenugreek, blessed thistle, marshmallow, barley, and shatavari) until September 2008. I didn't get my cycle back until February 2009 (which amusingly is the month I got pg with #2).

There's no evidence that herbs will inhibit your cycle so "proceed with caution"!!
