Hi, I've been BF now for 4 months and on Fenugreek for 3 months.

I started feeling very nauseated with intestinal discomfort about 5 days ago...after doing some research, I found that I was take twice the amount of Fenugreek that I should have been taking and I think this is causing my discomfort.

I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, but has anyone else out there experienced this?

any advice would be appreciated....

I noticed you did not get any replies.

I am sorry, I really dont know, but I doubt it did any lasting damage.

Check http://www.kellymom.com/herbal/index.html

She has great information on herbs for increasing breastfeeding.

I'm sorry you are feeling sick. I OD'd on Fenugreek, but it only gave me an over-abundant supply that caused mastitis. Other than that, I had no discomfort so I am no help. Sorry and I hope you feel better soon

I tried fennel and fenugreek tea for milk supply..
I think it made my milk supply less... it was really wierd.


I hope that you feel better soon!

I expect you'll be fine once it works its way through your system.

In a related note, (and this may be TMI) I've been noticing that I've got a lot of really stinky gas lately, and I think it must be the Fenugreek, since nothing else about my diet has changed.
