I usually take 2000mg of EPO and 3000mg of fish oil to manage PMS-D and general mood lability.  I've long heard not take take EPO during the 2ww because it can be stimulatory to the uterus and one should take Flax instead.  Flax doesn't supply GLA though (although I'm told you can convert some of it to GLA if you are nutritionally sound and don't lack an enzyme...).

 

I'm also usually low on ewcm, even with 2000mg of EPO.  My question is, could Borage Oil be used instead?  Has anyone tried this?  Just using the fish oil on its own does not in anyway shape or form control the depression I get in my luteal phase!
