Evening Primrose Oil(EPO), big headache!

So, to hopefully increase my cm this cycle I had started drinking more water,well kool aid, and taking EPO.  I had noticed a little difference, not much though as I haven’t been taking the full dose.

Well, guess what?  It gives me headaches that won’t go away since you take up to 6 pills a day all through out the day.  Yep, not taking those anymore.  Now what the hell am I supposed to do with this bottle of pills?  Shit.

EPO is estrogen based which is what produces fertile cm.  Estrogen rising causes me headaches, lucky me. 

Today is my first day this cycle not taking them and NO HEADACHE.  I might just have to go buy some Mucinex tomorrow. Mucinex as you know is an expectorant, it thins any mucus you have in  your body.  Anyone have any coupons for some?  :-)

  1. Hm.. so now I’m rethinking primrose oil! Thanks for the info on it, I was wondering how much of a difference it really would make.. Mucinex is the best bet for me, too. I’m glad you found the source of your headaches!

  2. Wow! So glad you posted this, I have been searching for someone who experienced headaches with EPO. I was beginning to think I was crazy! Noticed the headache has been going on for 2 days now, I stopped the EPO right after the headache started, which was right after the last pill I took. I noticed the bottle had an odd smell to it also, which I am now smelling down there, just greaaat. I guess I’ll have to start using Mucinex as well. It is pretty expensive though.. oh well.


    I’m taking it as well and I’ve found that 1000mg once a day upsets my tummy even when taken with food. Gives me diarrhea and a bubbly, nasty sounding tummy
