Anything you would have done differently? Yes, would have started earlier, but I did not know of this site. I started the Vit. C the same day I found you.

LMP: 10/15/99
Fertilizing Date: 10/24
Expecting period: 11/12
Herbs started on Tues, 11/23 (11 days after period was due)

I realize I made a really bad mistake counting my cycle. It WAS all my fault, I said that it would be OK. It was the 9th day, which is NOT ok at all. We have been very careful about this for 2 years. I miscounted by one day, and that one day led me to the following story. I hope I can help in some way by sharing. Herbs did not work for me, though I think if I had started sooner they may have. If I had only known about this site. I had no idea I was pregnant, until my period was late.

BTW, I am in pretty good shape--I was going to the gym about 2-3 times/wk. I used a dosage of 12,000 grams of Vitamin C (no bioflavs) usually 2 every two hours (except at night 4 every 4 hours). I did this for 5 days. (My stomach was getting very upset at the end of the 5th day, I had to call it quits.) I also started Dong Quai on the 2nd day 2 capsules every 4 hours. I had some cramping, but nothing else. I threw Black Cohosh into the mix on the 4th day, taking 2 every 4 hours as well.

I did try to talk about it with myself, God, and the unborn, rationalizing, that this was just not the right time, that maybe in a year or more, it could happen and I would be happy. I also tried visualizing my period coming. I even had a dream that it did come.

I did continue with the Dong Quai and Black Cohosh on the 6th, 7th and 8th day, (no Vit C). Still nothing. I then bought Pennyroyal Extract, thinking this would do the trick, I drank 4 cups of tea a day (20 drops per dose).

Still nothing. It has been 10 days, and I am making appointment for abortion this week. I only wish I had found this site sooner. It was only 4 1/2 weeks since conception when I started taking the herbs, and I was optimistic that these would work. I have never had an abortion, and was hoping I would not have to go this route. I am continuing with the Pennyroyal until my appointment. I do feel I have put my body through enough though, and I just want it over with.

I am happy for the women that this worked for, I just wish I was able to feel the same control.
