I did a risky thing and bought EPO capsules at Walmart. They smell rancid. Do you think I should take them? Are rancid oils full of free radicals?

i am 41 weeks and just started taking my epo this past week.  500 mg (2 orally and 2 vag).  i am drinking castor oil this weekend to induce.  should take more orally at this point or is it doing no good anyway since i just started it when i should have started a month ago?  should i do more vaginally?  like i said, i only have 3 days til i induce at home.

I wander does EPO help with estrogen dominance? How does it help with hormones. I am thinking that it may lower estrogen levels and I have just found out that I may be low. So that might explain the missed cycles and depression when taking it.

I was looking to find out about taking it again to bring up my estrogen but I don't know what it actually does.
