PMS / hormonal acne

12 years after puberty, I'm finally realizing that my acne is hormonal. I break out from the time I ovulate until my period's done, so essentially half of my life. I really want to avoid hormonal birth control so of course I ended up researching things on the internet like it was my job and came up with evening primrose oil supplements. Allegedly the gamma linoleic acid bumps up estrogen and thereby suppresses PMS symptoms including breakouts and breast pain, which I get as well. Does anyone know more about this, if it works, if it's dangerous, etc? Thanks!
