Fenugreek is also known to be useful in stimulating uterine contractions; this further helps in inducing childbirth. Consumption of fenugreek seeds during pregnancy reduces labor pain. But be careful while consuming fenugreek seeds, as excess intake of the seeds could cause side effects or may result in miscarriage.

Fenugreek contains useful compounds like isoflavones and diosgenin along with properties similar to that of estrogen. These properties and compounds help in reducing menstrual cramps in women. These compounds also ease mood fluctuations and hot flashes which are menopausal symptoms. Intake of fenugreek as a vegetable increases the content of iron among women when they are pregnant.
