I take 4 pills 3 times a day

i took about 2 capsules every 6 hrs & i saw results in about 48 ~72 hrs..

I take fenugreek and alfalfa to keep my supply up so I can also pump milk to have on hand incase I need to leave baby with a sitter. This helped me breastfeed my daughter until she was 10 1/2 months old when I was forced to switch to formula when she stopped gaining weight and began to loose some weight.

I take 3 pills daily of Fenugreek. Side effects were me producing a maple syrup like odor. Well whatever u got to do right?!?!

i started having supply issues at 2 months. i took other things that only helped a little, this really works. plus my daughter and i get to smell like maple syrup.

My 15 month old son has not been nursing well, partly due to lack of enough letdown, so I am taking Fenugreek to help my milk supply to encourage him to continue nursing. He has some growth and food issues so I can't possibly consider weaning yet.
Somewhat Helpful
1 dropper every night. Periods slightly more regular less discomfort.
Too Soon To Tell
Im not sure if it has helped or not. Ive been taking it along with black cohosh. It was recommended in a book on dealing with uterine fibroids and is supposed to have effects similar to black cohosh.
Not Working
Just didn't work for me. But I am BFAR.....
Not Working
I noticed a slight increase at first, but had to stop due to some digestive difficulties with the baby (not due to herb). I have started taking it again, but have not seen results.
