A Personal Story

Submitted Oct 11, 2000

Name: Marley
Weight: 130
Height: 5'4"
Age: 36
Pregnancy Test: none taken

Summary: Parsley - 2 cups, bleeding started 3 days later.

Information at the time of the abortion which was Spring 1982.

If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? Yes
How strongly do you feel this way? Pretty strong
Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy? No period
Were you successful in using the herbs? Yes
Is this your first pregnancy? No

For how many days were the herbs used (total)? 1 day
When did bleeding begin? About 3 days after taking the herbs

Herb Used: loose parsley
Form or method taken or used: hot tea; 2 heavy does (2 cups)

After about 3 days I suffered severe cramping and heavy bleeding, very similar to a severe bladder infection which I had suffered from for years. I knew nothing about herbal abortions at the time except from a book I'd purchased a few years earlier. I had assumed that if the herbs were working that I would have started the process immediately. Therefore, when it did start a few days later, I first thought I had just brought on my period and that it was a very bad one. It was so bad , in fact, I went to the doctor, but there was no sign of a bladder infection. The bleeding and pain continued for several days--and then stopped. I never had a period like this before of after, and I have assumed that I, in fact, completed an herbal abortion.

Comments -
Back in 1982 herbs were not as easily available as they are now, at least where I lived. Parsley was chosen by default since I couldn't find anything else that was listed in my book. The entire bag cost 50 cents back then.
