Submitted: Nov 13, 2006

Shared by: Emily from Utah

Age: 16
Weight: 140 or so when i started, but I think I may have gained a few pounds
Height: 5 foot 8

Do you smoke tobacco? rarely. I think I had two cigarettes during the course of this experience

Did you have a pregnancy test? no, but it seemed obvious. The day before I finally began to menstrate I took one though
When was it taken? during the course of taking vitamin c
What was the result. inconclusive. THAT was helpful.

If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? How strongly do you feel this way? I KNOW I was pregnant now. And I had a very strong intuition that I was pregnant

How was the pregnancy ended? Vitamin C, 12 g a day for 10 days, but many of those days I missed doses.

Would you try herbs again, or recommend them to a friend in the same situation? yes

Is there anything that clued you in that the herbs might be working before bleeding started? I began to feel a little relieved for some reason and I began to experience the same symptoms I usually do before menstration.

Is this your first pregnancy? yes

How many weeks pregnant were you when the herbs were started? 2.5
For how many days were the herbs used (total)? 10, with more than the occasional slip up

Were you using birth control? no
What kind/method of birth control/contraception were you using? none, unfortunately
If you were not using birth control, please share why not. Rape.

Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy? missed period, tender breasts, increased appetite, increased trips to the bathroom

comments: Once I began bleeding I was having terrible cramps, but some potassium and some chammomile tea seemed to help out a little. within 12 hours of bleeding, the pregnancy was terminated.

How did being pregnant make you feel physically? I felt hungry, but I have a feeling that was completely psychological. I was worried and anxious and I felt completely ugly.

If the herbs caused miscarriage -- I felt really calm, strangely enough. The cramping was agonizing. But they've subsided. There isn't much more to tell, really.

My story....where to begin. A few errors in judgement led me to be drinking on a Friday night outside a concert. This isn't very rare for me though, and it has become something of a hobby. A walk, or rather stumble to a convenience store led me to meet an incredibly large man who grabbed me, beat me into submission and took me to a nearby abandoned house. How romantic. I don't want to talk any more about it. You're free to share it, but I don't want to say anything else about it. I feel terrible. I felt terrible. A night of hell and I remember it a lot better than I would have hoped.

When I thought I might be pregnant a male friend of mine advised me to take large amounts of vitamin c and drink heavily. the drinking heavily seemed like an odd perscription, so I looked into herbal abortion and i came here.

my birthday was during this...experience so I did end up drinking, I doubt that had much to do with anything though.

I accidentally let it slip to a few people who became very concerned. I can't thank them enough for their compassion.

I was starting to feel ready to give up and I began to look into clinical abortions which are very far out of my price range. I took a home pregnancy test that came up inconclusive. That didn't ease my mind. But the night before menstration I had such a serene feeling- it was so odd.

It was really strange having something constantly plagueing my mind and not being able to just bring it up casually in conversation. I had intended to keep this entirely to myself, but it didn't end up that way.
