I was doing some research on EPO for someone. I came across a Livestrong article that indicates EPO MIGHT increase estrogen but it states "Although the role of evening primrose oil in treating hormone-related disorders suggests it might alter the levels of estrogen in your body, as of October 2011 no study or clinical trial has carefully examined its role in regulating estrogen. As a result, it is not yet known whether evening primrose oil can cause high estrogen levels."
I was told it was safe for estrogen positive breast cancer. It is safe for me because I had DCIS and had a double mastectomy, but others may want to consult their oncologists about it.
