Re: Fenugreek?

I think I took 3 pills 3 times a day? Something like that. Here's what kellymom says on dosage:

HTH! It might make you smell like maple syrup, too. I did, LOL.

Re: Fenugreek?

Let me see... I think I took 3 pills 3x a day. I didn't see a HUGE difference. I have also tried blessed thistle. (You don't smell like maple syrup. ) I am currently on my last week of Reglan and started taking my blessed thistle again. I think we will have to start supplementing... I made it almost 7 months with nothing but bm.

I hope that you can find something that helps! GL!

Im taking 4 pills 3x/day along with water,oatmeal and reglan. Until a few days ago I was doing blessed thistle as well. My supply dropped from 4-5oz to 2oz to .5oz per day and when we added the reglan it went up to 2oz/day and still rising.

Re: Fenugreek?

I take 2 pills 2x's a day and I feel a huge difference. I too was eating oatmeal everyday, until I found out today that it can't be the instant. Ooopsie !! And I hate oatmeal. I've been eating it for 4 weeks straight. I think that I will up my dose of Fenugreek to maybe 3 2 or 3X's a day. Let us know how it works,

Good Luck

Nikki

Re: Fenugreek?

I also used brewers yeast - I think 3-6 pills 3x a day with the brewers yeast when I needed to increase production. I couldn't take 3 pills of fenugreek at a time, maybe 3 a day? It seemed to give me migraines.

Re: Fenugreek?

Not trying to start anything just offering this advice....Please research this before taking it, not all natural things are safe (not saying it's dangerous, just saying I would research it)
