    Default All the Fenugreek takin' ladies!

    Just curious how many capsules and how many times per day everyone takes Fenugreek. I try and just keep myself smelling like maple syrup and sometimes thats a lot, just wondering what everyone else does and if there is a guide on how much you should take?

    I go with 2 capsules, 3 times per day. I don't smell like maple syrup, but see an increase in production. I also get more fenugreek with Mothers' Milk Tea, which I drink 2-3 times per day.

    I'm taking 7 3x a day. It was what I needed, I was at 5 3x a day and it wasn't working as well until I bumped up how much I was taking. My pedi/LC told me I can take a ton of it as needed and to consider using the powder or seeds if I can't get results from the pills.

    It had a mild laxative affect on both me and DS for about 1 week but now we're both adjusted.

    Yes I smell like syrup! My pedi is also an IBCLC and she told me that I can even double that amount if I need to- she said you can't take too much of it and with the pills it's not really exact how much is in each capsule. It wasn't until I upped the dose by a lot I noticed my milk really increases.
