Abortion can be defined as a medical procedure of terminating a pregnancy. This is achieved by removal of an embryo from the uterus. In this case, it may be either induced or through a medical procedure. However, the practice of abortion is still a cultural taboo attributed to guilt and shame. Therefore, pregnant women looking forward to conducting abortion should look for alternative ways in which they can end the pregnancy. Use of Vitamin C, therefore, applies as a modest way to terminate a pregnancy at home. Its application only proves to be most effective within the first month or four weeks of pregnancy where the monthly periods are two weeks late. After four weeks of pregnancy, the procedure might not work as required.
Several factors are taken into consideration to determine the amount of vitamin C dosage to be administered. These include weight, muscle to fat ratio, and previous intake of Vitamin C supplements and finally if one is a smoker. Smoking limits the absorption and assimilation of vitamin C. Having considered the following factors; dosages should be administered at intervals of an hour. The prescribed amount of vitamin C dosage should be 10 to 12 grams per day. This dosage should, therefore, be administered in doses of 500 mg at an hourly interval. The primary significance of administering hourly doses is to keep a constant level of vitamin C in the body. It can be further enhanced by physical activity such as walking to improve the rate at which it is absorbed into the bloodstream.
Vitamin C in abortion works by creating an uncomfortable environment within the uterus. It does so by stimulating the secretion of estrogen and interfering with the flow of progesterone. Progesterone is a hormone that prepares the uterus to receive the fertilized embryo. This, therefore, hinders the process of cell implantation where the embryo attaches itself to the uterine wall. In the absence of progesterone, the estrogen stimulates emergency menstruation and hence abortion. It is in turn excreted via the kidneys. However, the method cannot be applied to individuals having kidney related problems such as kidney stones, and sensitive kidneys.
When administering vitamin C as an abortion tool, it is common practice to blend it with Parsley. Parsley is herb that induces menstrual flow in the cause of a delay. This herb may be combined with vitamin C and taken together with a drink such as tea. It is ascertained of being harmless. Hence it may cause no harm or side effects to the user. Parsley works in organic abortion which therefore catalyzes the effectiveness at which vitamin C delivers to its course. Parsley is also administered as a tampon. In this case, the herb is unpeeled, then placed up into the vagina against the cervix. Its role, in this case, is to loosen the pregnancy, soften the cervix so it can dilate at ease. Similar to the use of a tampon, it is changed once or twice in a day until the abortion is activated.
Vitamin C abortion is propagated by several myths which can be analyzed as follows:
Uncertain Effectiveness of Vitamin C Abortion.
Ingestion of vitamin C does not always propagate abortion as stipulated. It is therefore not a reliable method that can be ascertained for perfect execution of the procedure. It may, thus, result in personal harm or even hurting the baby which may, in turn, cause hemorrhage.
No Credible Evidence to Approve Vitamin C as an Abortion Agent
Despite its testimonial use in ending a pregnancy, it lacks documented evidence that supports the proposition that vitamin C to be an abortifacient.
Use of vitamin C is characterized by unwanted side effects such as diarrhea, hemorrhage, headaches, kidney discomforts, rashes and lack of sleep.
Vitamin C Doses are not Safe for Everyone
Following that excess Vitamin C is excreted through the kidneys, high doses of the same may, therefore, be of great harm or even lethal to individuals with kidney related problems such as; Kidney stones, anemia (sickle-cell), sensitive kidneys and hemosiderosis.
