Goat's rue breast changes


I started taking goat's rue yesterday morning (after having no luck increasing my low supply with every other method) and this afternoon especially I'm having pains in both breasts and just recently itching. I know pains and itching are signs of growth generally, but I'm curious if anyone here has taken goat's rue and had similar symptoms (whether you ended up seeing positive results or not). I'm cautiously hoping this will finally help me. I haven't been diagnosed with IGT, but I have a family history of breastfeeding failure, so there's a chance that may be the cause, or at least a contributing factor. I have very large breasts, but they're quite squishy. If I have IGT, I must have a lot of fatty tissue in them. I appreciate any input!

Goats rue did the same to me! I didn't feel like it increased my productivity but it did make my letdown let down more. Like a lot more. Like leaky boobs all day.... I stopped taking it because of that.

I found myself wishing yesterday that I leaked... I guess just because that would mean I had more than enough.

I'm finally back up to making 9.5-10 oz during the workday, so I'm hoping between the goat's rue, tongue tie being fixed, and having a better pump that will continue to increase. I have parts of my breasts (on the bottom only) that are just sore, so I wonder if I have new ducts or something? They were never sore there before and I'm pretty sure my breasts are slightly larger, though it's difficult to gauge with a super stretchy bra (the only ones I can find that even somewhat fit me without spending an arm and a leg on good bras in my size) as opposed to a structured one. But it seems like my bras would stretch enough to actually contain all of my boobs before and now they don't. Like at all. Unfortunately nobody else in the history of the internet seems to have even mentioned breast pain/soreness/tingling/itching while taking goat's rue while also nursing. Most of it feels like growth pains and itching.

I definitely feel my let downs better now than I did before taking it, though I still never leak. I pretty much never had that tingling feeling, which I've felt several times when not nursing or pumping. Once when I was looking at my daughter in her high chair, which struck me as funny. Like my body was like she looks ready to eat, send down the milk! DD does seem more satisfied when nursing, so I wonder if she's now able to extract more milk than the pump can. If I can ever manage to get a day or two to lay around and just nurse as much as possible, I may actually see an increase.

I may need to try it again. For some reason I have stopped letting down as quick when nursing and pumping. Glad it seems to be working for you!
