I started taking a popular know herb in mexico as a abortifacient, named San Nicolas, this was before i find your web page. i took it for 2 days ( 27-28 sept), one cup each day.I felt slight cramping, that's all.

Then i miraculously found your home page, after several hours on internet, and started taking rue (it is very easy to find it in Mexico), for 3 days(29sept to 1 oct), like 4 cups each day (each cup with more less 2 teaspoons of dried rue). With the rue i felt cramping, but only that. Then at the second day taking the rue i also started with vitamin C, i started with 4 500mg tablets, and then one tablet each hour, i also wake up in the night, as you indicate, to take the tablet. I took it for 8 days (30 sept to 7 october). I felt so tired, very weak, very sleepy, without appetite. Also on october 3, i started taking Dong Quai, on tablets of 500 mg, so i took 2 each 4 hours, i took them until october 7. It made me feel nausea, and slight cramps.

Well I am 21 years old, and on december i'll graduate from college, when i found out i was pregnant, everything seemed to fall apart, i was so scared of being rejected by my family and friends, and catalogued as another "waisted life", and also I didn't feel prepared to be a mother neither emotional or in a financial way. So i took the decision of having an abortion, but there was one little problem, abortion is illegal in my country, so i started to researching for alternative ways, that was when i found out of the popular herb San Nicolas, and further find this page.

I made the decitin of having an herbal abortion, because it was the safer option i had, going to an illegal clinic was tottally out of my plans, if the herbal abortion failed, i would have had the medical abortion, there is a lot of information in the net, and i could get the misoprostol and methotrexate.

I also talked to the baby spirit all nights for release, i told him to understand me, and to forgive me, but that in this moment of my life i wasn't prepare, i think this helped me to feel less guilty for what was i going to do.

All this days i was so stress, as i have never been in my life, i barely sleep, and barely eat.

But finally on october 7, i started bleeding, and then i felt so released, like if i had the control of my life again. I blood very heavily for 10 hours, passing tissue. Then i blood heavily to light for 2 more weeks.

I really want to thank sister Zeus for her web page, and also for her support in the ask me page. You really were an angel for me.

Sister Zeus I have a few suggestions:
i really don't know if you already have this link, but it has been very helpful for me:
http://www.afterabortion.com

One final question:
It has been more less 6 weeks since i started the abortion, as i said i blood for 2 weeks, today, i passed some tissue, for more less 5 min, and then it stop, by the way i had sex yesterday.
Should i be worried for this spotting?

thank you for everything sister zeus

Regards,
Alma
