Could evening primrose oil cause weight gain? Could it make me constipated or bloated? I started taking it 2 weeks ago and have noticed this.

In brief: Primrose oil

Stop taking it now and see if your symptoms clear in a few days.
If so you know what to do. If not, you need to see your doctor about your symptoms that do not appear to be related to primrose oil.
