Comments -
worked great for me, no abnormal bleeding, much better than the alternative, much more personal and i felt as if i was in control, would recommend it to anyone( who knows what they are doing) I choose to use herbs for many things such as illness and have for years, I was very fortunate enough to have a sister who is a herbalist and helped me with the doses.

Is there anything you would have done differently?No absolutely not, much better alternative did not have to deal with loud suction noises and clinic workers and doctors who had no compassion
