I was told to use evening primrose oil for my hot flashes. I am 32 weeks and was wondering will that not throw me into labor?

Evening Primrose Oil will soften the cervix.  I take 6 capsules a day from 36 weeks on to ripen the cervix (prepare it) for labor.  I would probably wait at least a couple weeks to take it, because it does soften the cervix, so it could kick start labor for you.  I don't even start it until 36 weeks due to that.

I think if you only took 1 a day you would be fine.  But I don't know that much about it.
