i used to take it reg...after about 6 weeks i didnt c any improvement..i read up on it.its supposed to assist with a number of things..pms/skin/etc.etc..so i dont take it anymore...im giving Saw Palmetto a try,will wait 6-8weeks for results..alot of herbal/health sites promote it as being supplement 4 men to relieve the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia ..but alot of ppl men&women have praised it for being good for acne (because its an anti-androgen).. http://www.ovarian-cysts-pcos.com/acne.html (ref to nutritional supp).

who knows maybe primrose works for some ¬ others. vit e & zinc are good also. keep palmetto in mind 2 :)

I've been taking primrose oil for about 2 weeks now. They say it takes 2-4 months before you see anythying. I haven't noticed anything yet. It is supposed to build better prostaglandins, which regulate hormones.
