Herbs started at two weeks late.

Did you have a pregnancy test? YES
When was it taken? 08.15.2000

What was the result. NEGATIVE

If no pregnancy test was taken - do you think you were pregnant? How strongly do you feel this way? Did you experience any symptoms or signs of pregnancy?

Even though my test was negative, (I used a Walgreens test which I found out through your website was highly insensitive and should not have been used.), I was having all the symptoms of pregnancy, from being two weeks late on my period to getting a vague to stronger feeling of nausea, headache, gastric gas, dizziness, soft uterus, excessive moodiness & emotions, etc. I knew that something was wrong, even though my test was negative, and then when my breasts got swollen, I knew for sure.

How was the pregnancy ended?
Well after freaking out and not knowing what to do, I looked on the internet at alternative methods of abortions besides the regular horrible methods that make me sick to my stomach. I was wanting to find out more about acupuncture points, etc, when I came across your website quite by mistake. I couldn't believe my luck, especially when I found out you were giving me information without making me wait or pay a small fortune, the information was so readily available, I felt a real akinship to the website. I thank you for sharing your information so readily and so generously without conditions.

I started that night, 08.17.2000 Saturday night by using Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid). I took 1000mg at 1.00 P.M. another 500mgs at 3.30 AM, 5.30 AM,7.30 AM, 10.00 A.M. When I was talking on the phone to my boyfriend the next morning, I felt something happening, I couldn't believe that I finally saw a spot of blood. I was amazed that this worked so fast for me. ( although not entirely weak, I have low blood pressure and I presumed it happened faster for me because of my health. And also my strong intention that I did not want to keep this child.

I may or may not have been pregnant, even though I know, I am sure, But this website made me feel that there is something for us women besides the horrible people & experience that I have had at Planned Parenthood. Feeling that there was a sisterhood that gave me back the control I want to have over my body. I feel as my body is so sensitive that I was able to clue in really early and take action right away, instead of having to wait forever. Women do not having the luxury to wait if they are ppregnant. Its not that I hate children, I do not want to be a victim of my circumstances in life. I want to have a baby when I am ready, with the right person, with the right financial conditions in order to nurture and care for a life the way that it should be... I also explained this as I was doing the remedy to the energy of the child. Which I felt very strongly in the center being of my body and as I talked resolutely to that energy without waivering, I felt the presence leaving further out of my body. Strange experience, but a good closure.

The blood which came at first was almost a salmon pink and after a little spotting it turned into a full period. I am now on my 2nd day. My breasts stopped hurting after a few hours and the quesiness went away soon too. The blood is thicker and it has a very fibrous nature to it, Almost like fibroud strands. I am writing this because I am truly grateful to you and because of the generous sharings of my other sisters, I am now in a position to be thankful for this experience.
