Please include a summary of dosage information. And any side effects noted.
Vitamin C 1000m every hour (sometimes more).
Parsley (vaginal inserts) changed three times a day-used only for two weeks.
Dong Quai (first week 2000m daily) - after first week approx 1000m every four hours.
Black Cohosh, (started the third week- (approx 1000m every 4-6 hours). I got headaches from Black Cohosh.

I would wake up approximately every 2 hours at night and take 2000m vitamin C and Dong Quai every 4 hours. When Black Cohosh began, I would take that instead.

When I added Black Cohosh I would alternate using it in tea form and capsule form. when I had black cohosh tea, I would take dong quai capsules and vice versa.

After awhile, my system would feel rather toxic. I would then discontinue for a day and resume again.

This was the second successful miscarriage I induced with herbs thanks to your website. I must say this takes quite a lot of discipline. You MUST get up in the middle of the night several times. Two days before my miscarriage happened (when my second cycle was due). I practically fasted except for very acidic fruit and some dark chocolate, and highly caffeine drinks. I also kept very active throughout this process. I ran about 35 miles a week (what I do normally) even during the fast. I took two hot baths a day and did my best to communicate with the spirit and finding him/her the best and most comfortable place and parents I could think of.
