evening primrose oil & discharge (maybe TMI) user banned
6th Aug '08

So I bought a bottle of evening primrose oil softgels the other day after researching them online .. just to help soften my cervix, obviously they don't send you into labor. Today (second day using them) I got a ton of booger-ish yellow sticky mucus when I wiped, could this be the remains of the softgel or my mucus plug? Has anyone used these before, and to what result? Thanks!

Wow. You really want her out. Your starting your own labor. It's funny, but just be careful. It could be a combination of the primrose and the plug because if you softened your cervix then more than likely it loosened enough to let some or all of the plug come out. But, naturally it rebuilds itself so...good luck. ****Labor Dust****

I got the same thing when I used them and the doc checked me and I still had my plug. I think its probably just the soft gels. And pineapple didnt work for me either. I was doing both the gel capsules and pineapple at the same time and neither did anything for me! I ate a whole fresh pineapple and it make my mouth hurt and bleed a little. I wouldnt recomend it!

I had the same issue today! I literally had to google images of mucus plugs to see if it matched up. Wich it did. It was rather unappetizing though....



Primrose oil soft gels are made of glycerin, and gelatin. Usually, those two are the only ingredients in evening primrose softgels. It's the same thing as a suppository pretty much, you're just using it vaginally, as opposed to anally.



Most docs approve of it. It's pretty harmless. It will help your body prepare for labor and delivery but your body won't actually go into labor if its not ready.



I'm just hoping it was for sure my plug because that means I'm one step closer! :)
