Did you have a pregnancy test? Yes
What was the result. Negative

If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? How strongly do you feel this way? My test came out negative but my period was 8 days late on the day that I took the pregnancy test. My period is usually very systematic, so I was very nervous.

How was the pregnancy ended? Herbs, Vitamin C
Were you successful in using the herbs? Yes

Would you try herbs again, or recommend them to a friend in the same situation? Yes, it was not painful and when correctly, it worked. I would definitely suggest this instead of a surgical abortion.

Is there anything that clued you in that the herbs might be working before bleeding started? I could feel the cramps starting and I just felt optimistic about it the whole time.

Is this your first pregnancy? No. I unfortunately did have a surgical abortion before due to a broken condom and I could not go through that again. I found your website and I am very thankful.

For how many days were the herbs used (total)? 3 and a half days

Were you using birth control? No
What kind/method of birth control/contraception were you using? Condom
Do you know how/why it failed? My period was late.
If you were not using birth control, please share why not. I did not think I needed to be on them. I called an ordered them the day that my period came however.
Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy? No, just a later period

Please include a summary of dosage information.
Vitamin C: Tablets: 500 mg: every hour: for 4 days: 12/4 – 12/7: mild cramping the day before my period came.

Side effects.
How did the herbs affect you? They really didn’t
Any positive effects? No
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’m not sure if I was.

I am in college and unfortunately last year, I became pregnant due to a broken condom and had a surgical abortion. It was a very traumatic experience and I certainly did not want to go through that again. When my usually very regular period was late, I took did some research and took a pregnancy test. The test came back negative, but I did not want to take any chances. I came across your website and it seemed like something I could do on my own. I went to Wal-Mart and bough Spring Valley Natural Vitamin C. I took one 500 mg tablet every hour, even during the night. On the 4th day of taking them, I went to the bathroom before my shower and I was bleeding. I was so thankful. I had been praying every night because I had been careful, using condoms, but my period was late and I was not ready to be pregnant. I was very thankful for finding this site because it is a very good alternative for women. Thank you for exposing women to this information… it saved me. Thank you!
