Evening Primrose Oil??

First has anyone taken it?? What was your experience. I bought some today it's said to help ripen the cervix but who knows. I'm getting really ready to get this baby out ! I've done some research on evening primrose oil and was just wondering if anyone else has tried it?? I'm planning on using it until I go into labor hopefully that will be within the next 2 to 3 weeks!

My friend used it and she didn't rip during labour.

I've heard some good experiences from it from a lot of ladies. I haven't heard anything negative YET. I took 1 1000 mg and inserted another 1000 mg. I don't know if it will work or not I want a natural labor and would hope not to rip and have a fast labor. I read some saying it will not cause labor  just ripening while others suggest it does cause labor ... God only knows! Guess ill let you ladies know my experiences

Ya she was all natural with a quick labour. It was a good experience for her. Let us know how it goes.

I took it and it didn't help me dialate at all. I also have a history of seizures and when i took the amount recommended at 40 weeks i had a really bad seizure and discontinued it. I have heard it works for many women though. Goodluck
