I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I've read about the vitamin C & parsley method. How effective is this method?

No research but...: There has been no formal research on Vit C & parsley to terminate pregnancy, though according to the best available resource on this, it is about 30-45% effective. If you decide to try it, you should be committed to trying a more definitive method, such as RU486 (which should be used before 9 weeks) if it fails. See http://www. Sisterzeus. Com/vit_c_ab. Html

Dangerous to insert parsley vaginally and drink the tea taking high amounts of vitamin C when 5 weeks pregnant to cause miscarriage?

Dangerous to insert parsley vaginally and drink the tea taking high amounts of vitamin C when 5 weeks pregnant to cause miscarriage?

Yes: Do NOT try any "home remedy" to terminate a pregnancy! So many complications can occur-from infection/sepsis/death to hemorrhage/shock/death! Please go to a health care center, perhaps planned parenthood, or see your PCP.
I believe in Europe there is an OTC medication that you can take to induce termination of pregnancy up to (and maybe longer) 6 weeks, but I do not know if it is available US ...Read more

The pregnancy test was negative, I drank green tea, parsley and high dosage of vitamin C. I have cramps. And my period hasn't come but I'm PMSing?

The pregnancy test was negative, I drank green tea, parsley and high dosage of vitamin C. I have cramps. And my period hasn't come but I'm PMSing?

Not pregnant: It's so frustrating to have PMS symptoms and yet not to have one's period. There's not much you can do other than speak to your doctor if it lasts for too long (or happens repeatedly each month) about using some progesterone to provoke a period. To my knowledge, there have been no studies showing that herbal medications work to provoke a period. But provera (medroxyprogesterone) does work. ...Read more

I read in japan pregnant women continue to eat sushi and raw fish when pregant. I read that there are no conclusive studies regarding the ban, true?

I read in japan pregnant women continue to eat sushi and raw fish when pregant. I read that there are no conclusive studies regarding the ban, true?

The FDA disapproves!: Sushi should be avoided during pregnancy for two reasons. (1) risk of bacterial infection complicating the pregnancy. (2) risk of exposure to mercury complicating the pregnancy. Certainly not worth the risk during pregnancy. Cooked sushi or vegetable-only sushi should be fine, but then we'd worry about the person making the sushi having washed his hands after handling raw fish. ...Read more
