EPO?

Have any of you BTDT moms tried Evening Primrose Oil? If so, do you think it worked?

I used it with DS#2 starting around 36 weeks. At my last doctor's appointment before he was born I was 3cm and 80% effaced but I also had my membranes stripped the week prior. So I'm not sure if I progressed so well because of the EPO or the membrane stripping. I'd love to hear some other experiences with it. I can't decide if I want to use it again or not.

I used EPO with my DS. If I remember correctly I used the capsules and inserted them directly. It did nothing. I ended up having to be induced 3 days late when DS showed signs of distress. I had used it for a couple weeks before that. I don't plan on wasting my money this time.
