Some people have more luck with Fenugreek than they do with Blessed Thistle. One thing may work for a time, and then like anything your body gets used to it.
I irregularly take Fenugreek as I work part time and i have no side effects or issues from taking it some days, to not taking it at all. And it boosts my supply all the same. has been a real saviour for my express sanity actually!

Just wanted to say thanks ladies for all your words of wisdom - I've started taking the Fenugreek today and as yet no difference but will keep you posted. I'm also off to the supper market tomorrow to get ingredience for the Lactation Boosting cookies - I hear they also work wonders - while there I'll load up on the fenugreek seeds much cheaper!

Oh definately try the fenugreek seeds to make tea.
I had definate supply issues and have been on firstly fenugreek capsules (4 1000mg caps 3x a day), then fenugreek caps + motilium (4 tabs 3x a day before slowly weaning off) and they seems to help a little but was so costly. Spent over $100 before starting the tea.
The tea tastes horrible (can add honey), but sooo much cheaper at $4.90/kg at my local spice shop. I boil 1/2 cup of fenugreek seeds in 2L of water for about 15 minutes. I then let it cool and put it in the fridge. I drink one glass 3x a day (microwaved for 40sec so I can skull it down fast!!).
It has boosted my supply significantly.... I was able to express around 60ml from both boobs when on Fenugreek caps+motilium. With the tea alone, I can do about 90 to 100ml on average with my most ever being 140ml in one session!!
I haven't had any side effects and luckily don't have the maple syrup smell. Everyone will respond to it differently, but I hope it works for you!!

Apparently MILK thistle and BLESSED thistle is not the same thing!
My friend (studied naturopathy) confirmed last night when she checked the herbs or whatever used
See my post:

They worked for me, I've used them a number of times now for both children.
It was recommended I take 3 capsules x 3 times a day (these instructions aren't on the bottle). The first time I used them I woke up with footballs!!!! I thought my bobs were going to explose,so yes, for some they're they work really well and fast. However after a couple of weeks their effect wore off.
I too suffer from migrains but they weren't triggered by the capsules.
