Commits -

When my period was a few days late I was very worried. A few weeks earlier I had come very close to having intercourse with my boyfriend, and he ejaculated on me. I was scared. It was a few days before my 16th birthday-I was in no position to have a child.

When looking on the Net for info on abortion (which I was terrified of), I came across your site. I must have read the herbal contraception/abortion section 10 times, and I printed it out. I wasn't sure it would work, but I figured it was my last option before getting a clinical abortion.

The day before my birthday (I was about 10 days late by then and had exhibited pregnancy signs like tender breasts and queasiness). I bought a big bottle of vitamin C (no bioflavanoids) and some parsley. I began treatment immediately. That night, I talked to the spirit of the possible baby, telling him that I could not give him the care he deserved and that he should find the womb of someone who could. I wrote this on my belly in marker and went to sleep.

I continued the vitamin C and parsley all the next day, and late that afternoon, in the bathroom of a Starbucks, I began my period. I was so relieved, and surprised too. I hadn't expected the herbs to work as well. Thank you so much, Sister Zeus. It was so empowering to have some control over my situation, and not just sit there worrying. I'm so glad that I didn't have to face the reality of a clinical abortion. My mom and boyfriend would have been very supportive (that's the way they are), but I really didn't want to deal with that. I'm so glad there's a resource for women like yours out there. You saved me. Thank you


p.s. your teen section is awesome
