I have one question for those in the know: does it delay your period? I've heard it said that it can delay ovulation. Does this mean I'm taking too much? I don't want to get pregnant or anything, I just want to know if this is potentially bad.

Any way, thru many different trial and errors and trying things I finally found something that truly works!!
Evening primrose oil. Thank my lord, for putting this in my path. I use the one that comes in soft gels 1000 mgs. Any brand should be fine, but the best are stronger mgs and cold pressed. But if your broke like me than you can find some at Walmart. I take it as soon as I get the pain and keep taking them as needed. Approximately 3 per meal and snacks or as you need. I've been doing it for 2 months now and seen an improvement in pain of 80%. I took no pain killers!!!!!!!!! ( this is huge for me!!!! ) and with all my tying things I always gave into them because I could just not take the pain. I do not know about taking too many so you have to do that research, but truthfully I kind of do not care. Because of the pain in my prior periods I would take pain killers like candy. I figure, I rather take many of this natural remedy than many pain killers.
And beautiful ladies, it also helps with regular headaches, migraines, and menstrual headaches. You can try taking3 at start of headache, then more as needed.
Let me know your result beautifuls. This oil if a blessing from God, thank you father.
Pass the love forward if this helps, remember to pass on kindness. Love, Sunny

Please try Evening Primrose Oil 6 - 9 grams (6-9 capsules, each containing 1,000-1,200 mg) of evening primrose oil (EPO) daily. It'll take months before you see a drastic improvement, but the improvement will occur and once it starts, you'll see rapid changes like I did.
I am clear except for a couple of pencil eraser-sized spots. Before, I was anywhere from 50-75% covered and my case was very, very, VERY resistant to treatment. I had been on: topical steroids, PUVA, Enbrel, Humira, Raptiva, Remicade, and Stelara. I failed them ALL. My dermatologist even ran tests to make sure I had psoriasis!! (Which, tests showed, I definitely had. In spades.)
So, please give this a try. This $20/month supplement I bought at the grocery store has been truly a miracle and a life-changer. Three other things I recommend, too:
a) Apply a moisturizer immediately after your shower or bath. "Immediately" as in before you've even stepped out of the shower.
b) Use a gentle soap. I use geranium-scented.
c) When I use oil in cooking, I almost always use safflower oil.
I know that EPO is the main helper -- if I leave off of it for a few days, the spots return.

When first starting EPO, it takes a week before the EPO starts soothing the nerves. It acts somewhat like fish oil without the stink.
EPO was once considered to be the Royal Herb in Elizabethan times, and was used for many ailments. EPO will make one feel better in general.

I suffered Seborreich Dermatitis on my scalp for the last 7 months and I thought I had to live with this disease for the rest of my life. I had huge, itchy, tight scales on my scalp and I was loosing my hair... I went to 3 different dermatologist and they just prescribed me shampoos and lotions. Completely unsuccessful. Then I decided to have a holistic approach to fight this. First, I read that most of the times SD it's cause due to a "leaky gut", which means the gut is so toxic, that leak the toxins to the bloodstream causing skin problem.So, I decided to have a colon cleanse (2 days) and I stop eating dairies, wheat, coffee, sugars and meats. I did this for one week. At the same time I was taking Evening Primrose oil in caps (1,000 mg), one at breakfast, another at dinner. Almost intermediately my scalp stop itching. That was the first sign I was in the path to recovery. I continued washing my hair with special shampoos, but this time the scales were very soft and were loosing without hair attached. Today I'm cured. Free of this disease. I'm also taking a cocktail of necessary supplements to keep myself healthy (Oil, fish, B-Complex, Multivitamin, Probiotics, and of course, Evening Primrose Oil). Make sure your supplements are high quality and the oils, cold pressed. Hope this helps.
