Has anyone tried Evening Primrose Oil?

Just wondering if anyone had tried Evening Primrose Oil? Do you take prenatal vitamins along with it?

Re: Has anyone tried Evening Primrose Oil?

  • I am sure there are success stories out there and also a ton of people it has done more harm than good. One thing to ponder-if it was a miracle solution wouldn't every doctor tell you to take it and everyone would be KU. Just be careful, there is no science behind that product!

  • My doc once recommended EPO for non-baby-making related things.  I would talk to your doctor before taking anything.

  • I'll admit that I tried it for two months in the WTO period (along with grapefruit juice and cough syrup) and it did nothing for me - good or bad.

    I've read it can delay ovulation in some women. I've also read that it can take a few months to kick in but I decided to stop due to what PP's have said. Now I just take prenatal vitamins and use preseed when needed (along with charting of course).

  • I'd talk to your doctor before adding anything like that. I've also heard that it can delay ovulation so it may do more harm than good for you.
