Dosages:Vitamin C 1000 mg every two hours including waking through the night every night....then on 5th day started 1000mg of Dong Quai every 4 hours and 1000mg of Black Cohosh every 4hours.

Side effects.
How did the herbs affect you? Was very tired all the time, but could have been the pregnancy as well. Other than that no other side effects.

Where there any negative effects? other than not working to self abort no negative effects that would have caused me to stop taking.

I think herbs are a great idea to try if you have an unwanted pregnancy however, they do not work for everyone, however knowing I had to wait until I was at least 8 weeks for an abortion I thought it couldn't hurt to try the herbs. I wish they would have worked on me, as I didn't like the clinic idea at all, and to be able to handle the situation myself would have been great. I would encourage anyone who would like to try the herbs to do so and if it fails to work you can follow up with a clinical abortion.
