We have tried:
-power pumping and pumping 6+ times a day with Medela Symphony (very hard for me to pump bc she wants to be on me all day, I also get miniscule amounts with the pump)
- goats rue, fenugreek, blessed thistle, nettle, brewers yeast, alalfa, marshmallow
- iron supplements
- daily naps
She has a great latch, no tongue tie, and I did have some breast changes in pregnancy. I do breast compressions at each feeding. My prolactin was 190 45 min after nursing at a week potpartum, which I think is normal. Thyroid aso normal.
I feel like the only thing left to try is dom, which I was resistant to initially. Is it likely to work when prolactin is normal? I was hoping shatavari would work some magic and I could skip the dom. Any Ia when it works and when it doesn't?

i used it and i have to say it all depends on what you want. it is a steroid. There is associated weight gain, but i found it to work very well. i took it for about a year i think. i was breastfeeding after an extremely difficult labor, lot of blood loss and a breast reduction (five years prior to the birth). the pills made my process smoother and i had tried a host of homeopathic remedies before i tried the pills. good luck!
