Started taking evening primrose oil and my boobs are really full-- why is that?

I would look for another cause for breast fullness. Evening primrose oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids, essential fatty acids that are lacking in some people's diets. Always ask your doctor before taking supplements. ...Read more
