Fenugreek: How long did it take?

I started taking 3 610mg capsules of fenugreek 3x/day on Monday.

Normally I pump 3.5oz for my night pump and for my work pump. I had a dip in supply and began pumping only 2.5oz, so I decided to take fenugreek. The very first night I pumped my normal 3.5oz again. Same story the next night. Last night I was down to 2.75oz and tonight I'm up to about 2.8oz (and I pumped 1hr early tonight).

Were Mon and Tues flukes? Does fenugreek work slowly (like the small increase in volume from yesterday to today), or were Mon and Tues the results I "should" be seeing?

I would think that it would probably take a few days of fenugreek before you'd see a difference, so maybe it just hasn't kicked in yet??

I've read in a couple of places that for some women it does work that quickly, but for most it takes several days.

I ended up quitting the fenugreek anyway. Did not like the side effects.
