Hi Heather. Evening Primrose Oil is said to be a sedative for the reproductive system and helps relieve pelvic fullness and pain. I have not heard of it starting or affecting labour in anyway.

I have been taking it orally since about 37 wks. It is supposed to helped soften the cervix, but not start labour at all. At my 39 wk checkup I had an internal and my cervix is soft and low. This may be due to the EPO or not.

I definitly recomend taking it. It cant hurt anything. It doesnt necesarily start labor, just gets your cervix thinned out which could help progress labor. I started taking it at 37 wks, and by 38 wks my cervix was 50% thinned and i was 1 cm. If I were you I would give it a try. Good Luck!!

I've even read of using it as a v____al suppository. Haven't done it yet (oral or v____al), but am not quite ready to take that plunge yet.

I've been taking it seens I was 34 weeks and I'm not sure if my cervix is thinned out yet. I have a Dr appt Monday. She'll be checking me then. I get mine at a all natural food store and they have different mg 500,1000, and 1500, at first I was doing the 500 one oral and one v____al. then I moved up to the 1000, one oral and everyother night v____al. it doesn't hurt you or your baby. if you do it v____al go to the bathroom first then lay down and try to get it as close to the cervix as you can and dont get up for a good two hours. best time is when you go to bed. They say by the time you get up to go to the bathroom the pill is gone. good luck
