Age: 26
Weight: 108 lbs
Height: 5'3"

Smoke tobacco~ 6-10 per day
From: US

Pregnancy tests: I took 2 tests at about 6 weeks, both were positive, I waited because my period is never regular, however I always get it between 28 to 35 days. This was my first pregnancy. I had no other symptoms besides the missed period.

* After doing some research, including your website, I began taking 2 pennyroyal capsules twice a day plus 1000mg vitamin C at about 6.5 weeks. I only took the pennyroyal for 5 days but on day 6 I started spotting. I then took another 1000mg vitamin C. By day 7 the bleeding was very heavy. The pennyroyal made me sick to my stomach if I took it without crackers/food. I had some mild cramping/bloating by day 5, however, the stronger cramps began the morning of day 7 and were gone by that evening. By day 8, the bleeding was comparable to a normal period with no cramps. The fear of having to consider a surgical abortion was greater than any of the side effects I experienced with the herbs. My experience with an herbal abortion/miscarriage was not any worse than getting a normal menstrual period. And I'm extremely grateful that websites such as your own provide this valuable information to women considering the birth control pill failed me. I would recommend an herbal abortion to all women.

Thanks again for all the great information.
