Successful Herbal Abortion

I just want to share that after much introspection, I decided to have an abortion 3 months ago. I used a combination of Pennyroyal, Blue and Black Cohosh tinctures for 4 1/2 days every 4 hours. I thought it would never end, every trip to the bathroom was a nightmare. But I'm here to say that it worked for me. I had a scheduled surgical abortion at Planned Parenthood that I was able to cancel. From what I hear, the percentage of success varies. So I hope to be an encouraging statistic to those who are looking to go the herbal route!

I'm interested in reading others posts to see what experiences others had and what worked/didn't work. It's vitally important that we come together as women and support each other in our decisions and point each other in the direction of helpful resources. You're all courageous and beautiful!

I found this site by searching for ways to have a miscarriage naturally. I stress miscarriage NOT AN ABORTION. I lost my baby at 13 weeks and I am devastated. I am disgusted at finding all of your stories and responses. Here I am trying to have a baby and losing it and all of you have babies and want to kill them. I don't get it. If one of you were to have been raped and going through this I am understanding of that but as far as you ladies just doing whatever you want and having sex and getting pregnant and killing your baby that is horrible (yes I say killing and yes I say baby because I don't care what you think or believe it is a baby and a person and has a soul and spirit at the moment of conception.) Even if you were using protection and this and that it doesn't matter you have sex you take the chance of getting pregnant period. If you don't want to take that chance don't have sex. How would you feel if your mom had had an abortion don't you value your life and are you not grateful that you are alive? I am not trying to be mean and condemning but you ladies really should think about what you are doing before you do it. Just because the baby is in you, you are still committing murder this is a human just as much as you are no matter what prolife and abortion clinics tell you. When you decide to have the abortion doesn't some part of you feel like it is wrong? That is your conscience telling you its wrong because deep down you know it is no matter how much society may tell you it is ok. I just wish that you all would consider what you are doing and the options that there are before killing an innocent child. There are so many couples who cannot have children and would love to adopt your child. Just think long and hard before making this decision.

Some people choose different paths in life, your opinion about their paths should be kept to yourself if you have nothing positive to contribute. You "would never" abort a child or try to induce a miscarriage, however, not everyone else is comfortable just going with the flow and letting things just happen on their own. Just because someone is trying to rid their body of a LIFE changing decision, doesnt mean that they dont carry that burden with them through life. I got pregnant at 19 and it was the hardest decision of my life. My heart ACHED going back and forth, I had a miscarriage right before I went to the abortion clinic and I was relieved because I didnt have to make the decision. 2 years later I got pregnant again and self aborted with vitamin c, I was 5 weeks along and my life wasnt stable enough for a child and I had an abusive partner, I see children now and some days I imagine that they are mine and it hurts me inside that I made the concious effort to not have my child. Im not a bad person or irresponsible, I have a heart and feelings just like everyone else. I dont need for someone else to judge me about it or point fingers at me when I already do that to myself some days. Just because youre understanding of someone elses decisions or life, doesnt mean you AGREE with it or that you would partake in such actions, it just means that you choose to offer comfort instead of negativity, and the world should think about that more often. As far as adoption goes, it seems like a promising idea, but do you know how many children grow up in foster homes and never end up getting adopted or spend their entire childhood going from house to house with no real stability? TOO many. Not every child given into adoption WILL actually be adopted. Theres always going to be tragedy in the world, your opinion doesnt need to add to it :/.

I'm thankful for this post. I just found out today that I'm pregnant and I'm not ready for a baby at this time. I did research on Dong Quai, Black and Blue Cohosh and just ordered some tinctures of each. I'm hoping this will go ok since I know conception was March 20th. I had a surgical abortion over 13 years ago and I can still remember the pain from that procedure. I'm hoping this alternative will be better and the cost is quite significantly cheaper. Yet I know my health is the number one priority. I do want to try this option first to see if this help me. Thank you again for this post. I'm just trying to figure out the best measurements in regards to taking the medicine. Any suggestions would be helpful.

What is a herbal abortion?

I'm so sorry I haven't been responsive to your posts. To be honest, I had forgotten about this site until today. I will be more vigilant about checking in and answering any questions or providing support when appropriate.

Note: The success rate is only 15-20% for women who are 6 weeks or less. The rate goes down significantly after. It's important to know that if you begin ingesting pennyroyal, you must continue with a surgical abortion if it does not work. Pennyroyal will cause significant defects in the embryo/fetus so keep that in mind when considering.

Also wanted to elaborate on my experience. I purchased 3 separate tinctures (blue and black cohosh, and pennyroyal) at a local herbal shop. They can also be purchased online. I put a dropperful of each in an 8 oz. cup of water every 4 hours. EVERY 4 HOURS -you can not miss. This means waking up to an alarm in the night faithfully. By day 3, I was exhausted, starting to feel sick and didn't think it would work. That night, I laid in bed and cried which ended up turning into a spiritual type closure for me and the baby where I thanked it for coming be a part of my life and then releasing it back to wherever it came from. At that point, I was completely drained and beginning to be toxic over the pennyroyal, so I decided to stop the regimen. The next morning at 7am, I woke up with intense cramps and began to bleed.

i am a single mother of a 10 month old, i am 19 years old. my birth control failed me and now im about 9 weeks pregnant, i dont have the money, time or energy for another right now. I started two days ago taking vitamin C (500 mg every hour when i can) and black cohash (540 mg 4 times a day). I also lift 8lb weights, which is kinda heavy for the workouts i do and then I also do ab workouts. I work at an animal hospital, so im holding down heavy dogs, carrying heavy pets and all that stuff. I've been having bad cramps (lower bell pains) for a while, like a week or two. I dont eat that much, never have besides the first time i was pregnant. Is there anything else I can do or am i doing anything wrong? like should i up how much im taking, or how much im taking before bed ? help!

After 5-6 weeks, the percentage of success with the herbal abortion goes down significantly-not to say that black cohosh and vitamin c won't help, I would just advise against the pennyroyal. My advice would be to increase your exercise regimen, drink more than 200mg of caffeine a day and do some visualization exercises/meditation involving your womb opening up and releasing the baby back to the universe. Even if it's not something you would normally subscribe to, I believe it's an important component to a successful self-abortion.

my wife is 3 months pregnant.... so please tell me that, is it it possible to make abortion by herbal method... please tell me

After 5-6 weeks, the success rate declines significantly. At 3 months, the rate of miscarriage is very low in most women. I would suggest a surgical abortion at this point because the emotional toll of trying other things hoping they might work may be too much for your partner. I'm sorry for the late post and I hope all works out for the best.

Hi!
My period is 7 days late. I'm worry that I might be pregnant, (I haven't taken a test) I have a 6 months old baby boy & I'm not ready for a second one. I would like to know if this really works & if it's safe. Should I start taking Vitamin C just in case, or how should start?? I need help, PLEASE!

Thank you so much and thanks for everyone who has been spreading this information about herbal abortions in the Internet. It worked for for me! At first i thought that it was incomplete, because the pain and bleeding was nothing compared to medical abortion with misoprostol that i had years before. Today i went to the doctor telling her that i think that i have had an incomplete miscarriage and she checked me with the ultrasound - womb was complitely empty! I`m sooo relieved...Thank you again!

Hi!
I would like to know what you herbal did you took? I'm 7 days late from my period, (haven't taken a test) & I'm not ready to have a second baby, my first is barely 6 months & he needs all my attention..

Hello,

I started taking vitamin c by the instructions two and half days ago (about 5 weeks + 2 days pregnant with the positive test). I also made the parsley "pessar" and searched for some herbs witch should help: here in the small town in Finland i couldn`t find anything else than juniper berries and salvia - so i made strong tea from them and parsley and have been drinking that almost all the time exept the nights. I also eat salvia and all the disgusting stewed herbs from the tea with youghurt. Yes, i am quite desperate. I have also done a lot of "forbidden yoga asanas for pregnant women" and massaging forbidden acupuncture points. Yesterday i noticed some brown spotting and little bit of cramps but they went away just to come back fo a moment during the last night. In the morning i felt nothing and started to become desperate. But then, when i changed the parsley inside me 113pm this day i noticed that there was a little bit more spotting and it was little more red than the one i had during last night. I have also had menstrual-like cramps all the day, but not any serious bleeding yet. I`m exited and desperate at the same time and i really hope this works. For how long time have you had to wait (ones who have had a succesful herbal abortion) to the real bleeding and pains after the spotting started?

Thank you so much for this information . i was actually planning on getting the Dong quai Root, but i may try this instead.! &.Yes i agree we as women should support each other in our decisions.. You were an encouraging statistic in MY herbal route :-) i will keep you posted.

I am now 2-3 weeks pregnant and this is my first time. Is taking all of this herb will help me stop my pregnancy at this time?I don't know where to buy it..I am planning of lifting heavy weights while taking some herbs..what is the most effective herb combination.PLease help

Thank you, your experience helped me. I had a natural miscarriage/abortion by using black and blue cohosh, vitamin C, homeopathic a sepia and Serbina and a tea contains dong quai and other herbs. I took 3-5,000mg of vitamin C for 5 days, (do not exceed 6,000mg a day) and took 2-4 capsules of black cohosh and 2-4 capsules of blue cohosh 4 times a day in 4-6 hour intervals. I drank a tea containing dong quai and other herbs for two days starting the 3rd day. Then I started taking sepia and sebina the homeopathic a on the 4th day, 3-4 times at night. I made sure to drink plenty of fluids and I did have a few headaches which made me back off of blue and black cohosh, lowering my doses from a 4 of each to 2 or 3 of each. I started spotting on the 6th day and on the 7th I had heavy bleeding and cramping. (Hot bath and warm tea containing cinnamon helped with these cramps for me) I was born with a spinal birth defect and also numerous things that would cause me to not be able to have a healthy pregnancy. No matter what reasons u have for doing so, I honor and respect you. It is out choice as woman. Don't let ANYONE EVER try to take your choice away from you. Blessed be to all of you, I hope my experience can help someone in the future.

I have been taking VitC and Black Cohosh and dong quai with the tea but i feel like other than feeling bloated and feeling nauseous and the headaches I worried that its not working.. you by any chance have any suggestions?

Does anybody know if Pineapple works? I have yet to miss my period but I was pregnant 5 months ago and it was the worse experience of my life. I surgically aborted extremely early in. I am extremely paranoid and am experiencing low grade fever along with other similar symptoms I had before. I am too ashamed to go back to my doctor (I was literally in her office beginning of month discussing birth control options) The pill and other hormonal forms of birth control terrify me since mental illness runs in my family hardcore but I can't keep going through this paranoia and feel like another pregnancy would send me over the edge. I am supposed to get my period in exactly a week...I have considered starting the parsley tea method and vitamin C but am a little wary. Is Pineapple good to start eating?

You should start taking vitamin C as asorbic acid and dong quai. Good luck! I hope this works for you.

I had sex right before my period was due, but still i was late cause i took "ellaone" a pill similar to plan b in my area.But when i was late i still freaked out and got another pill, stupid i know. i really couldnt tolerate the taste of parsley, so now im taking 1000 mg Vitamin C every hour until i reach 6000 mg and 1000 mg of Dong Qaui over a time of four hours around the clock. And definitely sitting with a heating pad. Im 21 and already had a clinical abortion and i really cant go through the pain again. Fingers crossed ill update you when i get my period:*

5 days has passed how did it work?!?!

Did this work for u? I've been taking Vitamin C for about 4 days now and started Dong Quai yesterday but nothing significant has happened yet... getting very nervous!

I am 3 weeks and 1 day pregnant. tried cotton root bark tincture for 3 days straight after my period was 5 days late. 20 drops every 40 hours. did not work. now at 9 days late i am taking 1000mg dong quai & 20 drops of blue cohosh every 4 hours. I have been taking these for 24 hours now and have experienced no symptoms. after reading these responses i plan to purchase black cohosh & pennyroyal as well. I have an apt at planned parenthood in 5 days and hope to be able to cancel.

I have signed up purely to share my experience just because I spent so many hours desperately trawling through the internet looking for something to help me out of the situation I'd found myself in. Pregnant (6 weeks approx), and at completely the wrong time! I'd read about blue and black cohosh so I bought both in dry herb form from an apothecary shop. They only cost me about £5 in total. I didn't hold out much hope but anything's worth a go right!? I couldn't find out out the correct amounts or how best to use them so I simply added a tablespoon of cohosh to 1.5 pints of water in a saucepan, brought to the boil then simmered for 15 minutes. I then used a strainer to extract the liquid from the herb. I did this twice, making the blue and black cohosh separately. The result is something that looks much like black coffee, smells like you've face-planted a muddy field and tastes like that compost tea they make in Harry Potter (Or so I imagine). I drank a mug full of each cohosh once it had cooled slightly. It took me about an hour to get them down and honestly it has to be the most vile thing I have ever drank in my life!! About 4 hours later before bed, I drank the remaining half a mug of each. The following morning at 7am, once again I had half a mug of each mixture. By 9am I had very slight stomach pains, nothing major so I tried not to get my hopes up. However upon getting out of the car to head into work, it gushed out of me. I spent the working day extremely uncomfortable, soaking through 2 sanitary towels per hour. But it had worked!!!! Quicker than I could ever have imagined!!! I was sceptical but after forcing down me that godawful mixture, blue and black cohosh did the trick, for that I am extremely grateful!!

I had a surgical. I am so grateful. It's not the big deal people think. I actually sat next to a very religious looking person in the waiting room, the office was top notch, professional, clean. i'm tired of people with their stupid agendas putting fear into women. I had so much peace after...it feels so good to know that I can do what's best for me, to be the best me.

Hello. Since im not familiar with those herbs can i ask for the name of the clinic? Thanks! Or any #'s pls. Badly needed help.

I think she's talking about planned parenthood. They are very clean and professional.

will this work if i am about 15 weeks pregnant? please i just had a baby over 5 months ago and cant go through this again anytime soon.

Oh, and btw, no... These herbs only work for woman at 7 weeks or less

Depends on the person, it is not an exact science and there is no cut off. I have known it work for someone further along than this. Also, medically speaking a miscarriage is most likely to occur at any time within the first 12 weeks. Whether encouraged or completely natural

do by any chance know what I can do

I really hope that you are still there to answer my question.
I had an abortion with a pill couple of months ago
and yesterday after 1day of late period I found out upon taking a pregnancy test that I am pregnant and there is no way that I can keep this child.

also I am most likely about 2 weeks and 5days pregnant please answer quick as i am scared sh**less trying to figure out a natural way and by not harming my body or going to doc for an actual abortion.

Dude, shut up. I just had one and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, and I have zero regrets. And I belong to some very ultra right wing religious groups. And I would do it again.

Hey don't listen to the dbag who replied here. It's your choice. go to imnotsorry.net and get another perspective. Whether you do or don't do it is your choice and I'm from an ultra religious group and I STILL believe it's your own choice. I wouldn't take medical advice from this agenda-filled person who replied to you either. That being said I think you should find an herbalist to ask...

Thank you! Ya know its my body. My mom had one when she was young and she said it was the best thing for her... and shes a christian... its the women's choice nobody else's these other people need to get off this site. But thank you melsch!

I know what you're going through.. I love kids more than anything! I just had my second 4 months ago, my second C-section.. I just found out 2 days ago that I'm pregnant again.. around 5-6 weeks.. I would love more than anything to have this baby, but I know that one of us won't make it through the pregnancy, if not both. It broke me and my husband's heart, but we had to agree on looking at abortion.. I haven't done it yet.. the past 2 days I've been taking vitamin C. I took 1000mg yesterday, and 2000mg today. I can't bring myself to do it. I feel like crying every time I think about it. But it's the best thing for us both. I think because i'm still early, if they offer near me, I will try for a medical abortion, but the only safe abortion at 15 weeks or later would be either the Vacuum or D and E.. :( I hope you'll be okay

So the vit C did not work for you??? Im almost 7weeks late... I have three kids. And i cant afford to have another one... All of us will suffer... I took 1000mg of vit c yesterday and took another one today... I dont feel anything yet... Thinking of drinking parley tea... Abortion is illegal in our country... What else can I do.

Asking someone to give their child up for adoption is worse than abortion in my opinion. That's her body and asking her to go through 9 months of torture and risk her health on all levels, mentally, physically and emotionally is just ridiculous. Tell your friends that they can go adopt and that there's no need to have a carbon copy of themselves. I'm sure they're not that great.

I am currently taking pennyroyal tea 3 times a day, along with 1000 mil of Vitamin C a day. It has been almost 3 days and I haven't really felt cramping but little pains here and there. I am probably about 4-5 weeks. No morning sickness or nausea at all, but took a test and got 1 regular line and 1 faded line. My period is 6 days late also.

Has it worked

No, my herbs did not work, I am scheduled for a surgical this week and am not turning back.
My advice is know your body...know when something is amiss...keep track of your menstrual cycle. I'm saying this so if you are late, you can get that pregnancy test, find out and take the necessary steps EARLY.
Oh and do what is right FOR YOU and not for others!! This site is for us, NOT THEM.

Can i ask for the name of the clinic? Thanks

People... There is always adoption. Why kill babies? I just don't get it... I'm on here because the baby inside of me is dead, and my body hasn't expelled it yet and I'm looking for ways to make this process faster. I didn't plan of getting pregnant either, but I would never have the heart to kill a fetus purposefully , even if I got raped.... It's a human being with a heartbeat and spine, nervous system and all. Abortions to me are just sickening. There are so many people who want babies, give yours up for adoption!

1) I do not believe that a fetus at several weeks gestation is a baby at all.

2) "Just give it up for adoption", as though the baby just shows up one day and you hand it over. You realize a woman actually has to go through an entire pregnancy, right? I for one am not willing to put myself through 9 months of misery just because someone else wants a kid. I am not an incubator. Pregnancies don't always go smoothly, there can be complications and it's not a risk I'd ever be willing to take with my health. What if I got gestational diabetes? What if I had to be put on bed rest? I can't afford to miss weeks if not months of work. Pregnancy and childbirth can do horrible things to a woman's body, and there's no way I'd make myself go through that just because someone else thinks they are entitled to a baby. Now, if science comes up with a way to transplant a fetus from my uterus into some kind of incubator until it's ready to be "born" (ie removed from the incubator) then we can talk. Until then... HECK NO.

You could always keep your legs closed. Just an idea. Sex does lead to pregnancy you know

I am sorry that you are having to go through that.... and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but honestly you should keep it to yourself. The women on here are having to make a difficult decision in order to live their lives, and expressing how you feel is only making it more emotional. Giving a child away for adoption after conceiving it for 9 months, it's a lot harder than you may think. We are here to find helpful information and share our stories, not our opinions.

how does one get these medication to abort cohosh

As someone who only came across this looking for a way to help along a miscarriage that has already happened. Seeing this has broken me. I have been wanting a child so badly and now going through my second miscarriage with no living children.

I can't believe you people find it so easy to end the life of a small human being. I'm disgusted with humanity.

Another woman's body is none of your concern. How about instead of bashing pro choice, you do something productive and worthy of your time by trying alternative methods to conceive, or look into adoption.

Same here. It's saddening to know how many people kill babies every year. And now Obama wants to make it legal to kill babies that are born alive after abortions, ugh, sickening

I came across this because I am a broke college student completely on unsubsidized loans. I have zero monetary support and am trying to get an education. I found out I was pregnant yesterday, likely 6 weeks along, and it is clearly not my time to either go through a pregnancy nor raise a child. Quite frankly, this is a place for people to share their experiences, not for them to be judged and belittled. You should be ashamed of yourselves; we all have reasons for not wanting to bring a life into the world at this point, and this cluster of cells is not something autonomous nor even conscious, so in my opinion it is not truly human yet. Obviously we have enough adversity, pain, and anguish without you chiming in with your pro-life, anti-feminist ramblings. Take it to a place where it belongs.

Don't ever feel guilty about taking charge of your own body!!!! Listen to your gut! I actually prayed to G0d to make this procedure easy for me if He wanted me to have it, and he DID. Made it very convenient, and I experienced so much peace afterwords that I started praying again and connecting spiritually again. You can't tell me that's a bad thing. Anybody that imposes their beliefs on you is saying that they know the mind of G0d, and I think even according to the Bible you're allowed to do some serious punishment to a false prophet...

Hello. Did you push through with the abortion?

Don't have sex if you don't want to risk getting its that simple

What is more sickening... the people that have to make one of the most difficult decisions in their life in order to make it through a difficult times, or the people who judge them, pointing fingers and causing more pain then there already is. It's our bodies and our choice, not yours. I don't see why your even here on this discussion. People are here to help one another and share stories, not opinions.

Obama wants to make it legal because he realizes that whether it's legal or not, it is a woman's choice to do whatever it is she wants to do with an unwanted pregnancy. Guess what? It's our divine right as women. So you can either legalize it and have places where women can go have safe abortions or make it illegal and have women dying from infections and botched abortions. Also I hope your a vegetarian because if you consume meat, animals born just as we are but for the sole purpose of human consumption, you should have no opinion on abortions in the first place. I bet you hate people of color too.

Your funny you say it is our divine right. You know what our divine right is? It is to burn in hell because we are all horrible sinners. This isn't a political matter, its a matter of killing a child. I don't care what you women tell you self you know it is wrong that's why deep down you have guilt and remorse because what you are doing is evil and disgusting. I really hope that you can realize that before you just keep having sex, getting pregnant , and killing innocent babies.

so everyone else should sacrifice what is in THEIR best interests so you could feel better about humanity? Guess who also had a ton of kids and probabaly didn't force their wives to abort? THe bin laden family! let these girls make their own choices, they are already going through hell, they don't need an idiot like you to push them along.

It works. "2.5 weeks preg" two positive preg tests and all the symptoms. I took Dong Quai combo tincture straight (tastes like ****) every couple of hours for two days and bleeding came. Bad bad cramps, back ache and feeling sick but it worked. The bleed is similar to a regular period with more "tissue" appearance. I had an appointment scheduled for a surgical precedure but thought to give this a try first. If it didn't work I was still going through with the procedure because I think this herb will cause defects. Just be cautious and listen to your body. Hope this info helps someone someday

Where did you buy the dong quai

They sell tinctures at the vitamin shoppe.

I really hope that you are still there to answer my question.
I had an abortion with a pill couple of months ago
and yesterday after 1day of late period I found out upon taking a pregnancy test that I am pregnant and there is no way that I can keep this child.

also i am at the same spot you were. I am most likely about 2 weeks and 5days pregnant so how take the Dong Quai combo? what did you do? please answer quick as i am scared sh**less trying to figure out a natural way and by not harming my body or going to doc for an actual abortion.

I believe I am almost 8 to 9 weeks. I am wanting to try the black and blue cohosh... but I'm uncertain if it's too late. I can't have this baby. I already have two..7 and 5. My husband and I are going through a lot and have no funds at all to afford another child. Please let me know if it's too late to purchase it. And if so, is there anything else I could do that would help me. Thanks a million.

You can do a surgical abortion. It's EXTREMELY painless...you're under for 30 min, the anasthesia makes it 10 minues, slight leg pain afterwords and you leave 30 minutes after recovering. It sounds like if you have a support system you will also be able to get through any emotional stuff...a lot of it is hormonal anyway. I am passionate about this because I was almost talked into a serious mistake and I thought it was G'd's will that I shoud suffer, and when I read about successful abortion stories on the net I realized in my gut it was what I needed to do.

I am a very observent religious person who observes the Sabbath, obviously i'm not USUALLY the liberal here. But G0d is not on the left or the right or with the do's or the don'ts, he is your intiution and if you strongly feel a certain way about something you should honor that. heck, Moses killed a guy and still got to be the world's greatest leader...

Oh, to answer the question again I think surgical is the way to go because you are past the point of when the give pill abortions that syntheticalliy induce cramping, so I would think the same mechanisms are affected. But look up all your options, make your own choice.

Badly needed. Can i ask for the details of your clinic or what? Thanks!

Google planned Parenthood or abortion services in your area.

PAINLESS?! Hah, you mean painful. Surgical is not extremely painless, procedure took less than 10mins and I was out of the clinic 10mins after that. But my no means was it painless, sure you can pay additional $50 for more anesthesia, but you still feel it.

I took a pregnancy test 3 days ago and it was positive. I was freaking out because I'm in college and trying to establish myself. A baby now will really complicate things and I'm just not ready for that big of a load. So I started doing some research and decided that a herbal abortion is the direction I want to go in. I started taking 2 500mg of vitamin c every 2 hours, parsley insertions every 12 hours, and drinking 2 1/2 cups of fresh parsley tea for 3 days. Today I'm adding 2 550mg of dong quai root every 2 hours. Nothing yet but I understand that this takes time. I will return in a few days with the results.

Yeah I definitely will

How did everything work out for you??

(didnt mention details earlier) I was already on birth control pills, was feeling nausea so I got a test, tested positive. Havent told anyone. Researched herbal abortions & decided to give it a shot.
I started on the 14th, Im taking 1000mg of vitamin c every 2 hrs (even overnight) , I am also doing parsely insets every 12hrs, drinking parsley tea, and also taking black cohosh pills 540mg. I bought papaya enzyme but am not taking that yet

im trying the herbal abortion, should I stay on or discontinue my birth control pills?? Any advice would help

My husband and I have recently had a kid last year by c-section and i cannot have another baby until 3 years......the rubber broke and there could be chance of conceiving but i want to eliminate this chance totally. its been a week since this happened and my period is due in 10 days more......where i am located emergency contra is illegal so i could not have access to that....is there a way i can jumpstart the period on my period date or earlier to avoid pregnancy totally or shall i start on vitamin C & dong quai as planned.

Old post, but there may be someone like me looking for answers so ill add my experiences to hopefully help someone else. I'm 22 yrs old, have 2 children and my boyfriend is 26 with 2 kids as well. he is going thru a nasty divorce and custody battle. we had an accident one night and viola, I'm pregnant. Now i am anywhere between 2 weeks and 8 weeks. hard to be sure bc we don't use condom seeing as how I'm on birth control. but i was on birth control when my son was conceived jus never imagined i could be a statistic twice. anyhow. i have been takin 1000 mgs of vit c every four hours for 5 days along wit 1000 mgs of black cohosh and parsley tea every 4 hrs and parsley inserts every 12. i started 35-40 drops of blue cohosh mixed with a little water and 1100mgs of dong quai yesterday. i started cramping yesterday before i could even get home with my last two supplements but although it was strong it was sporadic. I am now cramping almost constantly an they are strong cramps. i have no nausea, and my morning and night sickness has completely disappeared. my stomach feels a lot lighter, but i have had no signs of spotting or loss of fetus. My body expelled a twin that had stopped developing when i was pregnant with my son but i had no signs of a miscarriage wit that either. i will continue these herbs for two weeks, an will seek help for a clinical abortion if it does not work. i will update everyone as events happen.
