I would appreciate the feedback of anyone experienced in this area. I am unsure if my last bleeding was spotting or my last period and so am unsure of how far along I am. I did the prescribed herbal abortion with vitamin c and black cohosh and then don quai. Thinking I was six weeks then, now eight weeks. Nothing happened. Now I am firmly not wanting to have an abortion and am researching the side affects. I think I might have been eight weeks when I started the herbal abortion and therefore would be past the necessary developmental stages which put the fetus at risk of birth defects. Does anyone know if don quai or black cohosh are either herbs which contain teragens, known for birth defects?

Don quai is harmful to pregnancy and therefore, the reason it is recommended for abortion, but if your body did not expel the fetus by now it seems that your pregnancy was unaffected. Usually, most herbs are gentle enough to not cause birth defects. I would have an ultrasound now to make sure the baby is complete and just consider your "situation" a hiccup in the whole experience. Good luck to you! I hope it all works out the way you want it to. Thanks for asking and reading the blog. I would love to know the outcome, so keep me posted!
