    Default Side effects of Fenugreek/Blessed Thistle?

    Just wondering if there are any side effects of these. MCHN said something along the lines of Fenugreek increasing temp in bubs. I'm taking both 'cos I've been having supply issues, but the last 2 days, mid morning, Ned has had this 'attack' when he suddenly has a painful cry, goose bumps and is shivering (and blue tinged skin) with a sudden high temp (around 38.7). Panadol brings the temp down quickly and he then looks the picture of health again. Having urine sample tested but wondering if it could be the Fenugreek or Blessed Thistle. Anyone have anything similar? It's very bizarre!

    Caro, they put this stick on pouch around their penis and when they urinate it collects in it. Blake's had a couple whilst he was in the SCN.

    girls they put on pouch on too my son I did a wait and catch -so it was a clean catch.

    Soph I think Fenugreek wouldn't increase the temp to that degree I have been taking it 3 days and my boys haven't had a temp.

    Any unexplained fever in a young child should be investigated for UTI.

    For me Fenugreek made me smell like curry :eek: My wee and my sweat reeked!
    Gave my supply a good boost though.

    the feugreek made me smell like curry too.
    And the only effect it had on Milo was loose (not diarrhoea), smelly poos which stopped when I stopped the fenugreek.
