    Hi All,

    Just wanted to put a theory out there:

    I saw my acupuncturist again on Tuesday and we were talking about all the herbal crap I consume on a daily basis, and he advised AGAINST taking Evening Primrose Oil as it has antihistamine properties which can DRY UP cervical mucus!!

    I have to say, I have been taking it for 2 months and have noticed I have had less, but put it down to having 2 miscarriages in a row. I'm going to give it a miss this month and see how I get on.

    Anyhoo, just thought I'd share his opinion so do with it what you will.

    I think the EPO increased my CM (but it could have been the grapefruit juice). But I do think it messed up my cycle and shortened my LP a bit more than usual! Going to skip it this month...

    well this is the first time i've heard it dries it up, all the reading and research that i've done says otherwise, i'm not saying your wrong but if one person is saying one thing and everybody is saying the opposite i'm forced to conform and go that way
