In brief: Depends

Oil of primrose is often used for pms and has an additional fat for those who need it.
It is usually fine to take and causes few symptoms, perhaps GI is the most common. You need about 1-2 grams for it to help with pms. It does not help everyone but it is worth a try rather than a prescription drug.
