Started taking evening primrose oil and my breasts are fuller. Nice but why?

In brief: Who knows

The data on evening primrose oil is spotty at best- some mixed evidence on its efficacy for treating breast symptoms, menopause and pms- i've actually seen anecdotal evidence of decreased mastalgia (breast pain) but if you are enjoying this "side effect"- have no fear- i haven't seen any convincing evidence of its harm!
