Your Story -

All the dosages and how many days it was taken was all mentioned above. The purpose Im sharing my experiences is to hope no other girls would experiences the same thing like what I was last few days. Having an unwanted pregnancy is really really stressful. When I found the site I feel so excited and thought that it could works, but when you have to put your commitment inside, you will really feel what a stress or tiredness it could be.

Taking pills every hours, waking up at night and take the pills and sleep back and wake up again, anytime u feel there's liquid, rush to toilet and check it out and came out with disappointment.. Imagine continuing the situation like this for so many days, what is the stress level it could be evolve. Besides worrying that the herbs not works, might have worry too of dragging the procedure. Clinical abortion (medical or surgical) are to be done as early as possible for a safer one.

On all the herbs for 4 days, I have spent around RM 150 with all the stresses, not only on me but also my spouse. When finally we decided to go for medical abortion, it cost us around RM 500. I have taken the first injection yesterday, and right away I have the feeling of relieve, my spouse have claimed that he see my smile the first time after the pregnancy is confirmed.

My advice is, if you are financially affordable, should really go for clinical abortion instead of experiencing all the stresses but such a long period. The few hundred dollar really worth it for u to regain your relieve, besides avoided on all the poisonous of herbs. People tend to add on dosage when there are in stress, and its a great risk on it! I did feel sorrow and sad, especially when I'm alone, I asked the fetus for forgiveness, and I have promised it with something and I will fulfill that promise! Hopes every other can see some parts out of all the success and failure stories.

Is there anything you would have done differently? Yes, definitely no unprotected sex!

There are many lessons that can be learned from an experience such as this, Do you feel you have learned something from this experience? If so what? no unprotected sex!
