Quoting Oh crap:“ Okay, so I know it this probably a sensitive topic, but if anyone has read my previous post then they ... [snip!] ... information and claims. http://angryforareason.blogspot.com/2006/02/how-to-induce-miscarriage-herbally-and.html?commentPage=7”
I have used these methods before, for years actually because I got tired of synethic birth control. Herbal birth control takes extreme dedication to your cycles (recording them) and being in tune with your body but once you find the right methods for you - it just becomes routine and habit to know what to take when and in what dosages. I used herbal contraceptive for 2 yrs successfully after a synthetic birth control failure that led to an abortion.
Info . . . . .
Provoke a period when you are due, it can even work if you are a bit late. You can do this by using Vitamin C. Take 12 grams of ascorbic acid - Vitamin C a day until bleeding commences. Specifically use ascorbic acid. Do not use vitamin C with bioflaviniods or has Rose-hips in it. Look for the cheap generic brands, they are usually the ones that have pure ascorbic acid. Doses consisting of 1,000mg every two hours are most common.
The vitamin C -ascorbic acid- works to produce an unfavorable climate within the uterus so that the egg does not implant, or cannot maintain its grip on the uterine wall by stimulating estrogen, and possibly interfering with progesterone.

Andrea - Took Vit C for 30 Days
I have used these methods successfully before. I take 1,000mg every two hours until bleeding commences. You should be waking up every 4 hours and taking your missed doses at night, this ensures that you have a constant level of ascorbic acid in your blood stream. 12grams a day - 1,000mg/1gr every two hours.
Contradictions: Who shouldn't use Vitamin C -
Individuals who have sensitive kidneys, kidney disease, kidney stones, or kidney problems of any kind, may want to avoid large amounts of Vitamin C. High doses of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) may cause the formation of kidney stones.9
People who take anti-coagulants [like aspirin or other pharmaceutical drugs], who have sickle-cell anemia, or who have difficulty metabolizing Vitamin C shouldn't take large amounts of vitamin C without the supervision of their physician.
MotherNature.com lists these conditions where people who have them shouldn't use vitamin c. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, Iron overload disorders like (hemosiderosis or hemochromatosis), History of kidney stones, Kidney failure.10
or renal disorders.
Vitamin C is nontoxic at levels far in excess of the RDA. Some individuals develop diarrhea or loose stools from taking approximately 2,000 to 5,000 mg per day, while even higher levels do not bother others. High levels of vitamin C can deplete the body of the essential mineral copper, so take a multi-vitamin that contains copper if you're mega-dosing on C.
***High doses of vitamin C may also increase the risk of kidney stones in some people, although studies indicate that those who do not have a history of kidney stones, severe kidney disease, or gout are not at risk. ***

NATURAL INDUCED MISCARRIAGE
Last Resort Methods
According to a 2003 study by the British Medical Journal of 1055 women it was discovered that pregnant patients who took aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) were 60% - 80% more likely to miscarry than women who didn't use the pain reliever.
*I recommend taking aspirin 4 - 12 pills a day. They are also a blood thinner and that will help with what you are trying to accomplish.
There are other simple things you add to your diet to help - avocados, ginger, cloves, coffee, figs and parsley.
Herbal Abortion - A Women's DIY Guide
Herbal Abortion gathers some of the long-known knowledge of herbal abortion and puts it into a straightforward and practical pamphlet.
Most women probably do not know what they are talking about when it comes to herbs.
One the other hand, I have done extensive research on alternative methods of *safely* inducing a miscarriage. It was my thesis for my major in Women's Studies.
I also use herbs regularly at the birth center I work at studying to be a midwife. And the work I did in Mexico in the Peace Corps doing my research and helping women obtain safe abortions using herbs because abortions are illegal there.
It's a meme, a throw back to when abortions were illegal and dangerous - that's the only reason why people think self-inducing abortion is wrong or dangerous because it *used* to end loads of women in the hospital or the morgue *but* those deaths were usually attributed to unsanitary or unskilled surgical abortions - not herbs.
Herbal Methods can work if done early enough and it can be safe if you do your research and make informed decisions.
My normal spiel . . . .
Either the herbs must be successful or an clinical abortion must be sought. Most herbs are embryotoxic or tetragenic (causes birth defects), keeping a pregnancy after you have used herbs is generally not recommended (Vitamin C is NOT a known embroytoxic/tetragen but no one has looked into the effects of high doses of Vitamin C without Bioflavinoids would have on a continuing pregnancy).
Vitamin C is very safe, the extra Vitamin C is excreted in your urine - so 'overdosing' is really hard. Of course if your kidneys aren't healthy - you shouldn't try this *but* most people are healthy. It is also one of the most effective methods for terminating an early pregnancy. Herbal Methods can work if done early enough and it can be safe if you do your research and make informed decisions. Many women have successfully used herbs to terminate unwanted pregnancies. Just because it's not an option for some, doesn't mean other women wouldn't want the knowledge, it is a personal choice whether one wants an abortion - herbal or clinical. She should do her own research and decide for herself whether or not she understands the risks and is a good candidate for these methods. Remember everything in life has it's risks and unless one fully understands their options and the subsequent risks, there cannot be true informed consent.
Ps - One of the most awesome herbs out there for influencing your fertility is Rosemary with it's well-documented anti-implantation abilities. Why is Rosemary awesome? Because it has been *proven* that if it fails to prevent implantation - there is NO tetragenicity.. Come on ladies - Do your research!
