I have been taking 3000 mg of Evening primrose per day for the last 9 months due to severe,painful fibrocystic breast disease.after 6 months of taking it,I went for a mammogram and was told "no sign of fibrocystic disease". I will stay on it for the rest of my life!!!
My dr put me on primrose oil and 800 IU vitamin E to see if it would stop the breast pain associated with fibrocystic breast disease and a fibroadenoma. I was also told to go off all caffiene. Most of the breast pain I previously experienced disappeared within 2 month so starting the regimen. I just had my six month ultrasound after biopsy and they found the breast lump had shrunk 3 centimeters.
