Hi!

As some of you might have read, I suspect I'm pregnant and am waiting till the 20th to find out. I was taking evening primrose oil, but have stopped because I'm not sure if it's safe during pregnancy. Anyone know?

I'm pretty sure it is but you might want to call a midwife just to be sure.

Shouldn't be used during pregnancy except to ripen cervix in last month. But if you've been using it right along, I would wait until I knew I was pregnant for sure before stopping use. It's not that harmful or strong, just generally not used during pregnancy because of it's gentle hormonal effects.
I was using it at the beginning of both my pregnancies and stopped when I found out about being pregnant, which my midwife agreed with.
