On the evening of the 23rd I begin taking 800 mg of Dong Quai and 1000mg of Vitamin C every 3 hours around the clock. I did not notice any symptoms. for 2 days. I began to feel some cramping and on the evening of the 24th and when I awoke on the 25th I had as light flow. I continued to take the herbs on schedule and the morning of the 26th my cycle was extremely heavy.
I was a little scared about taking these herbs. I am not one for taking many medications. They had no side effects and this site was a pure joy for me.
Thank you so much for this site It is true life saver. I have had a clinical abortion before and the thought of going through that pain again...I literally began to cry. I just got on the internet hoping to find something, anything but that. If I had not come across your site I would have endured that again.
Thank you so much.
Is there anything you would have done differently?
No, but I am getting my tubes tied.
