4 Abortion Herbs in South Africa

Abortion Herbs in South Africa are not recommended to terminate a pregnancy. Do not even try to terminate your pregnancy using herbs. Herbs are not effective in ending a pregnancy and some are out right dangerous.

If you use herbs two things may happen:

  1. You will not succeed. Abortion herbs are not scientifically designed to end pregnancies. It is a waste of your time and some times a waste of your money. You may end up getting the baby at the end of the day. Most girls who delay get abortion is because they started with herbs and other unprofessional things to abort. They failed.
  2. There are some herbal concoctions that may end up injuring you. You may end up bleeding uncontrollably and you will need hospitalization, if you can get to hospital early. If you are far from the hospital you may end up dying. Be careful. Some unlucky girls puncture their wombs with these herbs. If they survive after this they can no longer get children in future. Avoid herbs!

Why do Women turn to Herbs to End a Pregnancy in South Africa?

The main reason why women turn to herbs to abort is because they do not have enough information about safe termination of pregnancy. Second reason is the stigma associated with unplanned pregnancy. Many girls hide their pregnancies and secretly try to end it often unsafely with herbs.

Most women do not know that there is free abortion in public hospitals and if you are not helped in a hospitals you can also terminate cheaply using abortion pills.

So because of lack of this information they end up getting information from friends and traditional healers from their societies. What they receive are dangerous herbal concoctions that are either unsafe or useless.

The herbal abortions remedies will not work if you are lucky. If you are unlucky you will bleed uncontrollably and die. Pleas avoid herbal abortion portions.

Avoid Herbs to End Pregnancies

Herbs do not go through any scientific study to test their efficacy. More often than not herbal treatment is based on try and error. If you are lucky it works and if unlucky it fails.
