Combined Pill Interaction


Hi, I’m on the Combined Pill Gedarel and I’ve been taking Evening Primrose oil lately. I’ve recently worried myself by wondering if Evening Primrose Oil interacts with or lessens the effect of the Combined Pill. Please can you confirm if it is okay to take both and that Evening Primrose oil will not reduce the effect of the pill?

I’d be so grateful for a reply as soon as possible, I’m worrying myself!!


Hi @Haggy

Evening primrose oil does not interact with the combined pill so you do not need to worry about that.

Many thanks



Thanks so much for putting my mind at rest.
Best wishes
