hello
welcome to healthcare magic. there is lot of information on the net, some true and some not so true. to my knowledgethere is no harm if you have buttermilk with fenugreek seeds. you can have it on alternate days if not everyday. if however you feel any discomfort (which i dont think you will) then you can stopp having that and get other alternatives.
