In brief: Not clear

Evening primrose oil is a source of the essential omega six fatty acid gla- and has been shown to help with the itching of eczema.
There is some mixed evidence on its efficacy for treating breast symptoms, menopause and pms- i've actually seen anecdotal evidence of decreased mastalgia (breast pain). One thing i haven't seen is any convincing evidence of its harm.
