Penguin is it on her public Facebook page? She defriended me from her private one after I pressed her about this very issue.

I came across it when an ABA person shared it (for different reasons) on an ABA closed group

I don't like this person anyway, this just adds to it.

Limited studies, no evidence that it does anything at all to my knowledge, some limited evidence that it may be harmful in some circumstances.

Interesting. I frequently "overdose" on it if I need to increase my milk - usually if I'm planning on going out and want to express. I see a big change to supply after taking it, but didn't realise it could be harmful.

The concerns are predominantly for women with pre-existing conditions, usually dysfunctional thyroid, not so much across the general population afaik. There was a fairly recent study conducted which concluded that fenugreek had no more effect than a placebo, but anecdotally it appears to work for many women.
