I voted medium supply with no supplements. I did try every supplement on the market and didn't really see an increase in supply and they all seemed to make my LO gassy.

Thanks everyone for voting on this. I was really curious because I see all the talk about supplements and prescriptions. I was wondering what supply level everyone decided to take them.

I myself tried fenugreek with my last LO, but I cant say it helped me any. I was a HVP that turned into a high AVP (5-10oz surplus/day)after going back to work. I seem to be doing the same so far so I did not try anything......Well maybe lecithin if I am on a day trip with my family and I slack on a pump. Sometimes I like to eat oatmeal because I like it-(I do see an increase several hours later).

I ate lots of oatmeal and took More Milk Plus capsules and was an HVP. Then I stopped both and was still and HVP. I lost some ounces, but that was probably on account of dropping pumps. I highly doubt anything will bring a LVP higher than a low AVP.

I am such a dork. I was checking out how the vote was doing and I saw that I put MVP instead of AVP. Looks like people figured it out though.

I did not see much of a difference with supps when I tried them, but others swear the work for them.

Maybe we should have a poll about supplements tried and whether or not people found them effective?

I cant think of all the common/uncommon ones off the top of my head. Someone will have to help with that.
