Has fenugreek worked for anybody in increasing milk supply? If so, how long did it take? How much did you take a day?
My lactation specialist has me starting it today because stress is taking a HUGE toll on my milk supply, I basically have nothing since yesterday.
Just want to see how good my chance is of it working and make sure I take it correctly.

It hasn't been scientifically proven to work. It's not a regulated drug so you don't know what you are getting. I wouldn't use it.
Stress does not affect supply. Women in Haiti and in wars are breastfeeding their babies. To make more milk breastfeed more. Stress can affect the let down reflex somewhat. Doing relaxation exercises will help with that. Even if teas, ect. worked it wouldn't help if you are having problems with your let down reflex.
If you are pumping rather than breastfeeding using the Marmet massage technique before pumping may help. Go to google and type in Marmet technique for instructions.
