  • I found that the tea worked really well, took the pills too but the pills depend on how much water you also drink with them. I'm not a fan of plain water so the tea worked better for me.

  • I didn't take the tea, but i took the pills..and like the other chick said, water is a big part of it..and the milk from the boobies kinda smelled like the pills..lol..but it got my supply up enough where i had a lot of milk left so i could stop pumping since i became preg again..

  • the tea and the capsules have both worked well for me.
    when taking the capsules you do need to take more then the bottle recommends. i take at leat 3 pills 3 times a day and it can cause you to smell a little like maple syrup(since fenugreek is used to flavor some breakfast syrups.)
