Could Evening Primrose Oil Decrease the Need for Cesarean Sections?

Seventy-one pregnant Filipino women who were nearing term were randomly assigned to receive evening primrose oil (EPO) or placebo for one week.

A measure used to determine whether a woman is likely to have a successful vaginal delivery and whether labor should be induced increased (improved) to a significantly greater extent in the EPO group than in the placebo group.

The results of this study suggest that Evening Primrose Oil may be useful as a cervical priming agent to enhance the success rate for vaginal delivery. Supplementation with EPO might therefore be a useful strategy for decreasing the cesarean section rate.
