    Evening Primrose Oil

    Has anyone had any experience of this? Google shows that some people swear by it, others say it did nothing. I know it won't bring on labour, but I have a sweep in a week and I'd really like to do anything I can to help my cervix soften so that the MW can actually do the sweep.

    I also know it's not proven to be safe in pregnancy, from what I have read that is from no studies being done, rather than stuff it contains. If you have tried it, how much did you take and how? So many people say different things.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've only ever taken it whilst ttc in the first half of my cycle. It could be worth a try, I don' think it can do any harm xx
