A Personal Story

At 40 years old the last thing I want is another child. I have 3 almost grown children already. I never even suspected that I could be pregnant until my period which is never late didn't show up on time. I never took a pregnancy test this time because I couldn't stand the thought of having another clinical abortion. You see I had one in my early twenties and another in my late thirties. But when I hit the 8 day late mark I knew I needed to do something.

Desperate for a way to end this possible pregnancy with out having to have a clinical abortion I looked to the internet for a herbal remedy. Like an answer to my prayers your options were here for me.

I decided to use vitamin C along with the parsley tea and a vaginal insert of parsley. I started on Sunday afternoon 10 days after my period was due. I took 500mg of vitamin C every hour. I even set the alarm clock all night long to be consistent. I drank the parsley tea several times a day, although I had to hold my nose the first few times I drank it.

In less than 24 hours I started to spot. At that time I almost stopped taking the vitamins etc, but decided not to stop just yet. Good thing because I actually didn't start really bleeding and having a period till Saturday morning, which was a little heavier than normal and although I usually don't experience cramping I did have cramping this time for a few days. My period also lasted a day or two longer than normal.

    {Note: Often a pregnancy that has been ended with herbs when bleeding begins it will often be somewhat heavier than normal, with more clots, sometimes more cramping than usual.}

The information you provided was a God send. I couldn't have managed to take time off work for a clinical abortion as I am just starting a new job and if I had told my boyfriend would never forgive me for doing it.

The night before I started my period I dreamt of 3 little fetuses and in my dream I was wondering why there were 3 when I had only terminated 2 pregnancies. The next morning when I woke up I realized that I had indeed ended a pregnancy and said good bye to another possible child and in my dream I had apologized for not being able to allow him or her to be born.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the information you have provided to me. Hopefully I will never have to use it again.
