Has anyone ever used evening primrose oil to induce labor?

It doesn't induce, it helps prepare your body for labor. An EFA in it is the building block for you to make prostaglandins, which soften and efface (thin) the cervix. I took it (2 capsules daily from 38 weeks on) and effaced quickly but I still went into labor normally and happened to have a longish labor.

It's also very healthy for you so not a bad idea anyway toward the end.
