1 doctor agrees
In brief: Don't do it!
Black cohosh and all other complementary and alternative medications should be completely avoided by everyone because they are unregulated and potentially dangerous with no proven benefit.
Even more so for pregnant women, or women hoping to enter labor soon! please disclose to your obstetrician any of those dangerous drugs you may have been exposed to!
