Fish oil with DHA & EPA

sawyer55 posted:
I'm 56 years old and postmenopausal. Six weeks ago I decided to put fish oil with dha and epa in my diet. Two days into it I started spotting after 10 years of nothing. I called my Gyno and had a vaginal CT scan where nothing was found. I quit taking the fish oil till last week and wanted to try it again. Same thing happened. I haven't seen a study on the web about this and was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience with DHA & EPA in their fish oil.

Dear sawyer55,
That's interesting; I don't know of any significant literature on the topic. I'd be interested, too, if others have found this happening to them,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
