I usually have very bad cramps during the first day of menstruation.. after taking this pills, my cramps became very severe and it started for about a week before my menses and continued throughout my menses. An ultrasound done by the gynae revealed that I have a growth in my uterus and he scheduled me for another appointment. He said that this growth is more likely due to evening primrose oil.

I take this as soon as my cycle starts and it helped with everything from first day fatigue to general moodiness. I have recommended it to all my friends and coworkers instead of IB or motrin. I find it to be a great alternative. It helps if you take it the week before your cycle starts.
