Hello Syaza,
Thank you for getting in touch. We don't recommend Evening primrose oil in pregnancy and lactation so I'd suggest that you stop taking the EPO once you are actively trying to conceive.
Feel free to contact our Advisory service on 1800 803 760 or for any further support from our naturopaths.
Kind regards,
