Just been told by doc to try eveninng primrose oil for mid cycle breast pain.

Read online that you should not take it when breast feeding.

is it jusdt the usual 'dont take anything' thing or different.

fwiw it is only one feed per day

i did - figured it was broken down as a fat.

if worried why not take it after evening feed - you know when there is a long(ish time before the next feed.
