A Personal Story

Submitted: March 16, 2001

Name Jillian
Age: 22
Weight: 120 lbs.

I saw your "sharing our wisdom" page, and thought I could share my experience using Vit. C and parsley tea as an emergency contraceptive.

My cycle has never been regular. It's varied between 30-49 days--so I mean very irregular!! I had sex with my boyfriend using no contraceptive (very, very, very irresponsible!!) I was about 26 days into my cycle--which is a potentially fertile timefor me. The next day, I started taking between 6,000-8,000 grams of Vit. C. (I'm 22, non-smoker, and weigh 120 lbs). A week into the Vit. C, I started taking 2 cups of Parsley Tea each morning and evening. Voila, on day 35, my cycle started!!!

So, I understand that you're period won't start until the "cycle" has completed. Day 26 may not have been a fertile time for me during that cycle since only 7 days later I got my period. Either way, I had faith in what I was doing and felt somewhat in control of my body.

Thank-you Sister!!
