Did you have a pregnancy test? yes
When was it taken? april 27, 2000
What was the result. positive

How was the pregnancy ended? preterm labor (6 months)
Were you successful in using the herbs? i did not try the herbs. I tried the pill used to treat ulcers called (cytotec/misoprostol). It is known to cause miscarriage but was unsuccessful for me. Since there's no abortion here I decided to carry it to term but was on labor by the 6th month.
Is this your first pregnancy? 2nd

Were you using birth control? no
What kind/method of birth control/contraception were you using? withdrawal
Do you know how/why it failed? i thought it was safe cuz we've been doing it for more than 2 years

If you were not using birth control, please share why not.
What was the date of the first day of your last menstrual period? March 22, 2000
Do you know the date of fertilizing intercourse? What was it? April 8-10, 2000
What was the date you were expecting menstruation? April 24 or 25
How long do your cycles usually run? The whole cycle; 28 days, 30 days, more? less? does it vary? it varies for around 2-3 days, sometimes even 4
Do you cycle regularly or irregularly? regularly

Comments I was instructed to take 2 pills of Cytotec 3 times a day, if that doesn't work insert another 2 pills to the vagina. However, it doesn't work for everybody, so if things don't work out, go see an abortion clinic before you'd be carrying it too long and get things complicated.
