Evening Primrose Oil provides the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid and supports production of fertile quality cervical mucus.
Evening Primrose Oil for Cervical Mucus Production
Our organic Evening Primrose Oil provides women with Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid converted in the body to prostaglandins – types of enzymes that have been shown to balance female reproductive hormones and support a wide range of bodily functions, including moisture regulation of mucous membranes.
For trying-to-conceive women, the key benefit of Evening Primrose Oil and GLA is its function in lubricating and maintaining mucus membranes and production, thus helping their bodies naturally regulate the ideal quality of fertile cervical mucus. One of the main features of healthy, abundant cervical mucus during the fertile period before ovulation is its ability to sustain sperm in a healthy medium and to allow sperm to move freely through the “hostile,” or pH-challenged, environment of the cervix. During ovulation, healthy fertility relies on the change in texture and increase in amount of a woman’s cervical mucus (often referred to as “egg-white” cervical mucus because of its ideally more stretchy and diluted quality).
Evening Primrose Oil should only be taken during the pre-ovulation period of each cycle (from the first day of menstruation until ovulation is assumed or confirmed to have taken place).
Wondering which supplements can be taken together?
(see our Fertility Supplement Guide to find out.)
If you are concerned with the quantity or quality of your cervical mucus, we recommend taking FertileCM instead which was formulated for exactly this purpose, and be sure to choose a TTC-safe lubricant like BabyDance Fertility Lubricant.

Begin taking on the first day of menstrual bleeding and continue taking 4 capsules daily until you have established ovulation has taken place – and then at that time, please discontinue use.

The directions for use recommend taking 4 capsules daily, which provides 2,000 mg of Evening Primrose Oil per day. As such, the amount of Evening Primrose Oil per capsule is 500mg.
What are the different benefits between FertileCM and Evening Primrose Oil?
Both supplements help to increase fertile-quality cervical mucus – however, Evening Primrose Oil should only be taken from the start of your cycle until ovulation and discontinued once ovulation occurs. FertileCM can be taken throughout your entire cycle.
Can I use Evening Primrose Oil with FertileCM?
It’s perfectly fine to take them in combination with one another if needed. It can take your body 2-3 months to fully assimilate to a new vitamin and herbal supplement so it may take some more time to see results from the FertileCM.
Can Evening Primrose Oil be used with Clomid?
Yes, it can.
Is this product vegan?
No, this product is not certified vegan.
Can I take Evening Primrose Oil when pregnant?
Once pregnancy is confirmed with either a blood or urine test, we recommend that you discontinue use of Evening Primrose Oil.
