Fenugreek and weight changes?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently started taking fenugreek pills to help with my milk supply and so far it's working really well for me.  I did have some nausea and they give me slight stomach cramps, so I was looking up side effects online when I came across some news that is bothering me.  Apparently, fenugreek is used to induce weight gain.  At the same time, I'm finding anecdotal evidence that it promotes weight loss.  I'm hesitant to continue taking it if it will indeed cause me to gain weight.  My supply wasn't that low to begin with, my son is almost nine months old.  I'm stuck with an uncomfortable twenty 'breastfeeding' pounds as it is and I don't need any more!  So, if you've taken fenugreek, did you notice an effect on your weight either way?

Nope, I did not notice a change in my weight at all and I have not personally known any women who gained weight while taking this herb..... I say go for it mama!
