In brief: Primrose Oil

There are no literature reports that I am able to find that suggest primrose Oil is harmful.
Read this: http://www.drweil.com/vitamins-supplements-herbs/supplements-remedies/is-evening-primrose-oil-safe-after-breast-cancer/. Some studies suggest it might be helpful in patients who have a certain familial gene mutation associated with aggressive breast cancer. I would undergo genetic testing.
