Re: Can you tell me about evening promrose oil?

I took it orally starting at 37 weeks or so. My mid wife's instructions were to start with 2 pills and double the dose daily until I felt cramping then back off to the previous day's dose and keep taking that until I went into labor. She had me taking it because I had a LEEP several years ago and we wanted to be sure that scar tissue didn't keep me from dilating properly. EPO can help with that. I went into early labor the evening of 39 weeks 3 days, my water was broken the next evening and I went into active labor and had the baby 3.5 hours later. No trouble dilating on my own, especially once they broke my water.
