In reading over discussions under Oral today and other times I have checked in on here I rarely see many discussions about cunnilingus. I love both giving and receiving and my current BF is the best ever at giving oral! Some of you may already be familiar with the herb, Fenugreek, but for those of you who do not know about it read on and feel free to research it for yourselves before you start taking it as a supplement. Fenugreek is an herb that traditionally has been used to increase lactation in breast feeding women and also aids in inducing lactation in women who are adopting a baby and want to breast feed or for women who are in adult breastfeeding relationships (ABR). Fenugreek contains plant estrogens which give us the same benefits as prescription type of estrogen -- but apparently without negative side effects some of us suffer when taking the Pill/estrogen replacement therapy, etc. About six months ago I discovered all of the herbs that contain estrogen properties and started taking them, narrowing it down to primarily taking Fenugreek -- more bang for your buck so to speak -- as it contains more of the plant estrogen than the others. I had read that Fenugreek would make ALL of your bodily fluids smell like MAPLE. Well, it DOES! My BF reports that oral is even more enjoyable due to the maple scent. He said the taste is not exactly maple syrup, but sweet. I learned that artificial maple flavoring uses Fenugreek for the flavor because it is less expensive than maple syrup itself.

I buy fenugreek at the local health food store and have also purchased it via online herbal stores. I agree with what others noted below regarding checking with one's MD before taking any herbal supplements. I am fortunate to not be taking any prescription meds and take herbal estrogen because I cannot tolerate The Pill or any prescription type of estrogen. I research any herbal supplement as best I can through extensive reading and have been into natural/homeopathic remedies for over twenty years -- so feel comfortable with choices I make in taking supplements. I am not relying on The Pill for birth control -- use an IUD -- so the fenugreek is not interfering with birth control for me. As far as dosage -- after getting clearance from doctor -- you can look at what is recommended on the bottle. Regarding arguments -- pros and cons -- about wanting certain bodily fluids to taste "natural," and not like maple -- to each his own. But, as you pointed out about what men ingest resulting in different flavor sensations -- same applies to us as women. And I still say it is "natural," just depends on what we have ingested lately. My BF eats a lot of pineapple and we joke about his high protein "smoothies." But, good points about checking with medical providers -- brought out in other responses. I admit to not being very trusting of more mainstream medicine -- but never want to put someone in harm's way medically.
