Question Evening Primrose Oil & Birth Control?

Hi all;

I was wondering what is the proper way to take EPO? Should I only take it during the week I'm *not* on the Pill, or do I have to take it all month long? If the latter is true, are there any counterindications to taking *both* EPO and the Pill at the same time?

Thanks for your advice (in advance!)

Re: Evening Primrose Oil & Birth Control?

Why are you taking EPO? From what I've heard, it can affect hormones a little. If you want essential fatty acids, what about flax oil, which is safe to take every day and with BC pills?
