Did you have a pregnancy test? no

If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? I have a 14 months old baby and a can said that I was pregnant at 90%. For 5 days I felt that my period was coming but it was never starting just like last time

How was the pregnancy ended? I used blue cohosh. 20 drops every hour for 4 hours than I started bleeding. After I took it 2 more times to make sure that everything was getting detach.

Were you successful in using the herbs? Yes

Would you try herbs again, or recommend them to a friend in the same situation? Yes, I used that herb before to induce labor. I was 10 days early and I decided I wanted the baby to come. I took 36 hours until I started labor. The blue cohosh did not gave me any side effect, maybe a little headache. I would recommend to take this herb if you are late with your period. Women should be aware of their cycle and even if you are only 2 days late, it is better to prevent than to heal...

Is there anything that clued you in that the herbs might be working before bleeding started? Apart for the fact that I used it for labor, I was 97% sure that it would work. I was so positive about it and really trusted it.

Is this your first pregnancy? No

How many weeks pregnant were you when the herbs were started? 2 weeks
For how many days were the herbs used (total)? 2

Were you using birth control? well, yes and no... We started with a condom and finished with the pullout

Do you know how/why it failed? Of course, precome. Little african sperm...Really powerful Im telling you

If you were not using birth control, please share why not. You know, start with safe sex than the baby start crying, stop the sex for 15 minute the time that the baby falls back asleep, than the condom was off. Do a little bit of sucking to clean it up than realize that it was the last condom... So we end up doing the pull out.

Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy? No really except guts feeling causing the run
When did they start? the same week

Please include a summary of dosage information. 20 drops of the alcohol base tincture every hours for no more than 6 hours. After, 20 every 4 hours but no more than 5 days.

I dont think you should mix to many thing at the same time. If you can only find black cohosh, keep searching cause you really need the blue. It is harder to find but if you got to cross town for it, do it, dont just go and get the black, it is very different.

Side effects. I little headache need to drink more water and make sure not to drink coffee with the herbs. Coffee take the herbs away.

Do you have any health problems or issues? Not really, nothing major
How did being pregnant make you feel physically? Stress out

If the herbs caused miscarriage -- how did you feel just before bleeding began? And when bleeding started - How was the bleeding, cramping, etc? I started bleeding very slowly, I was getting nervous that it will not kick in properly, than I went to bed and I taught I have to relax and than the next day I got my pants all bloody.

I felt guilty cause I think that if I knew about those herbs before the first pregnancy, my little boy would probably not be there. I also felt like I was killing a little human. The feeling only stayed for a couple of days...

The reason why I did not want an other kids is very complicated but simple at the same time. My first baby was conceive with an other man than my boyfriend. We were all open to it, it was not cheating it was an open relationship. I got pregnant I am not so sure how cause we did use protection. Anyway, when I found out I was pregnant, I told my boyfriend and right away we thought that maybe it was not his. He was there for me and he is still there. When the baby was 4 months, I did a DNA test cause the kids do not look like his father at ALL. As it turned out, he was not the biological dad. So now the kids is 14 months and me and my boyfriend just split up. Not even a week later I meet this man from africa and I am sure at 90% that I was pregnant. So you see that I did not want his baby. A little chocolate baby is a little bit harder to pass for his baby... Well, I just didn't want him to go crazy over it. We will probably get back together in a few months. And beside, one kid is enough for me.

I sure am learning from this experience. I trust the herbal medicine and sure hope that all of you who is trying to miscarriage will work as easy as me.

Thank you for the website, we need woman like you
