Evening Primrose/Starflower

I'm not sure how true this is but was told that Evening Primrose and Starflower Oil although excellent to take while on menopause it can make you start to have periods again.

I am worried of starting these just in case as I have gone nearly 2 years of not having a period and would rather not have them start up again lol.

Has anyone else heard this or experienced it please?

Thank you for reading.

Sorry if this is not helpful. I am not menopausal but evening primrose oil was terrible for me. I broke out in acne all over and it never got better for 3 months. Finally stopped. If you aren't absolutely sure that your body needs it, I would stay away from it. It obviously has strong hormonal effects


Thank you ticktickatick, I will bear that in mind. Not yet decided what is best to do at the moment.


Thank you for replying missymystique. I don't think I'm going to bother with it either after reading about it plus like you I have enough problems with thyroid without risking it further.
