GETTING PREGNANT WITH EVENING PRIMROSE OIL




EPO or Evening Primrose Oil has been known to enhance women's fertility for women who are trying to conceive and get pregnant. It comes from a wildflower which grows in North America (the oil is extracted from the seeds.) You can take this supplement in in capsules or liquid form in the amount of 1500mg to 3000mg per day. It should be kept in the refrigerator and out of sunlight. Of course, you should talk with your doctor before taking any supplement

Evening Primrose Oil is high in vitamin E and GLA (gamma-linolelic acid) which helps your body manufacture the “good” prostaglandins. These “good” prostaglandins are hormone-like substances which improve the cervix and cervical mucus. GLA also works as a vessel dilator and blood thinner.

Evening primrose oil is also thought to improve the uterine lining and strengthen the placenta. It acts as an anti-inflammatory which can help with conditions like endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disorders. It should be noted that some studies have questioned it's effectiveness as a fertility enhancer, however this could be attributed to poor study design.

If you are having problems with the quality of your cervical mucus, Evening Primrose Oil may help with this as well. If you are experiencing thick or hostile cervical mucus, it may help you attain the "egg white" consistency that is necessary to help sperm swim. It is recommended not to use this supplement during the last half of the menstrual cycle (luteal phase) since it may cause uterine contractions. If you are trying to conceive, this could make conception less likely since it may be harder for the egg to implant.
