Did you have a pregnancy test? no
If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? Yes
How strongly do you feel this way? Pretty strongly, because I am a pretty regular person. And I was 4 days late. And i'm either right on time or early, I've only been late once and I was pregnant with my son.

How was the pregnancy ended? I started drinking parsley tea. And in your information you talked about taking vitamin C, and i was so desperate (your probably going to laugh) and it was too late to go to the store, I ate about 10 oranges, After I had about 3 cups of parsley tea. The next morning still nothing happened and I made one more tea and i only boiled about 6 ounces of water and I put alot more parsley in the water and in about 1 hour I started to bleed.

Were you successful in using the herbs? yes
Would you try herbs again, or recommend them to a friend in the same situation? yes
Is there anything that clued you in that the herbs might be working before bleeding started? no, I felt nothing.

Is this your first pregnancy? no, it would have been my third.
For how many days were the herbs used (total)? 1

Were you using birth control? no
Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy? yes, I started urinating alot, and my husband was getting morning sickness, he was like that with both of my other pregnancies, and I was feeling really fatigued.

Please include a summary of dosage information.
just boiled about 8 ounces of water with about a handful of parsley, but the last tea I made was 6 ounces of water with about 2 handfuls of parsley , no side effects, felt absolutely nothing.

How did the herbs affect you? fine
Any positive effects? felt nothing different
Where there any negative effects? no

Do you have any health problems or issues? no
How did the herbs make you feel physically? fine
How did being pregnant make you feel physically? I was tired, my breasts hurt, and I even felt my heart beating really fast.

If the herbs caused miscarriage -- how did you feel just before bleeding began? And when bleeding started - How was the bleeding, cramping, etc? I had felt nothing and I went to the bathroom and I had started bleeding, but still for the first day I felt almost no cramping , but the next day was bad (normal cramping, I'm such a wuss for pain)
