Nope, I’m not even kidding — www.privatedrugstore.eu has totally made my YEAR. The only downside is that I had to wait a MONTH for it to arrive, which had me on tenterhooks. Which is why I’m saying, stock up now, even if you aren’t pregnant, for every modern, empowered lady should have it in her medicine cabinet, for herself or a friend in need. The earlier you take it, the better, for you can achieve success with lower dosages and subsequently lesser side effects (google some mifeprex/misoprostol studies to see what I’m talking about) and the longer you wait, the statistically lower your chances of complete abortion become (which means you’d have to go to a clinic anyway to finish, if you only get it partially).

Doing things the “normal” way, and why I think it sucks
Now, the typical, recommended, approved, tested, documented blahblahblah method of chemical abortion in the United States is this: you go to a clinic, or your ob gyn, explain to them you’re pregnant and you don’t want a baby, and then they administer between 200mg – 600mg Mifeprex to block progesterone and “loosen” the uterine lining, then 800mg Misoprostol 12-72 hrs later to induce the contractions to get things “flowing” as it were. Then they bill you for $500. Or maybe you have to pay it upfront, depending on where you’re going. I have a FEW problems with this process:

1. Cost. WTF.
$500, are you NUTS? I’ve got a mortgage and a kid to take care of. I can only think of about a billion things I would much rather put that money towards. I don’t need financial stress on top of the crappy feeling that I screwed up and accidentally got pregnant. At the particular online pharmacy I bought from they even sell a combo package — you get the SAME thing that they administer at the clinics for $500, for $45. If you’re super broke, skip the Mifeprex, cuz you can even buy TWENTY 200mg Misoprostols for $27 (That’s 5 abortions). Ideally the regimen is started with Mifeprex, but I have managed to successfully terminate with a single Misoprostol when I caught it very early on, I think my period was about a week late at the time. If you’re super-early, one Mifeprex alone might work but it’s a bit riskier, because the thing you ultimately want is for the placenta to detach from the uterine wall, and if you’re more than just a couple weeks along, just blocking progesterone for a few days may not be enough – you need those contractions, which is what the Misoprostol does.

2. Privacy and simplicity, or lack there of.
I can go into a drugstore and take care of a yeast infection without explaining the gory details to anyone, why the heck can’t I do the same if I discover my period is late? I have no problem whatsoever with anyone terminating a pregnancy, but something I totally hate about American culture is either the feigned look of empathetic pity you get from people that have never been through it, or on the more extreme end I have heard of judgmental gynecologists insulting their patients’ lifestyle. Or yet worse, if you’re in a red state, you might not find a place to serve you at all.

3. Time.
I hold a full-time job at a technology firm, take care of my baby daughter, make time for my partner (her daddy), play 3 sports, and pursue my artwork on the side. And occasionally like to have a social life. Why should I have to schedule appointments at a providers convenience instead of just buying what I need over the counter or online? Not to mention, they usually make you wait until you’re 6 weeks along – so you get to be all stressed out about it for a while instead of taking care of it immediately.

4. Dosage.
This is an interesting one. After the time I took just one Misoprostol when a week late, I had come to the conclusion that they REALLY overdo it — that the 800 mg of Misoprostol was responsible for causing contractions so intense you feel like you’re giving BIRTH, and that the same could be accomplished with much less. However this time around, I’m led to believe it’s the Mifeprex + Misoprostol combo in the system that is responsible for vomiting, diarrhea and knee-buckling contractions. Even so, I think they over-prescribe the Mifeprex. One 200 mg Mifeprex is likely to make you a little dizzy, a little nauseous for a few days, but not enough to need to take time off work (for me anyway), and it’s enough to get you bleeding by day 2 or 3. I’ve read “official” recommendations that state 400-600 mg taken all at once. Ugh. I don’t know what that does, but I don’t imagine it’s pleasant.

My Recent Experience
So here’s the whole saga from start to finish. I’m going to mark it by LMP (Last Menstrual Period). So week 4 is when I was expecting my period. Week 5 is when I realized “oh shit, I’m a week late.”

Week 5 – 6
Having clearly miscalculated ovulation due to some post-baby irregularity and neglecting to take my usual herbal precautions due to being busy to an insane degree, I found myself a few days *late.* I got a test from the drugstore, and lo, there appeared the faint line confirming my worries. Crap. For a week I went with neem suppositories and ingesting massive amounts of Cotton Root bark, none of which, did a damn thing. That’s when I started looking around online and reading up on “illegal” pharmacies. I found one forum where commentators discussed online pharmacy ratings (I think stuff like pharmacyreviewer.com or pharmacychecker.com or something but I can’t remember), One person questioned the low rating of a pharmacy he had bought from numerous times with positive experiences. The discussion meandered into the “why” behind the low ratings, and some suggested that large “legitimate” pharmaceutical companies purposely do this to try to undermine competition from companies selling the same drugs for a fraction of the price. Huh. So I followed one commentators link to privatedrugstore.eu, found what I wanted, hesitated, pondered, worried I was going to be the victim of credit card fraud, or that it might not work, and a hundred other unpleasant scenarios, before I finally purchased 1 pill of Mifeprex. Why just one Mifeprex? Well, after one of my chemical abortions under the supervision of an RPA, I had started bleeding on day 3 after taking the initial Mifeprex, but before I had taken the Misoprostol. My hypothesis was that ALL I needed to do was block progesterone, and poof, the pregnancy would be weakened enough to leave my body without inducing contractions. So OK, I was wrong, so for chrissake, don’t do this.

Week 6 – 10
My order was placed, all I had to do was breath deeply and wait. This is easier said than done. Especially when the first trimester is making you tired and hungry but you’re keeping it to yourself instead of beaming and exclaiming to everyone that you’re pregnant while demanding their subway seat, or pork chop, or chocolate cake, etc. This can be lonely and stressful unless you have someone close to share it with. Week 10 – 13
So the Mifeprex finally arrives. Whew. I was able to track it online, but there was about a week delay due to extreme weather conditions affecting the post office. It came in a small padded envelope, there was a postage stamp from Singapore, and nothing on the outside indicating what it actually was. The pills were in a foil blister pack like the image at the beginning of this post. I swallowed it, and around 24 hours later, started to bleed. Hallelujah. However, it didn’t continue. By 48 hours after I had taken it, the bleeding had slowed and then stopped. I got online to see what this means in the context of a miscarriage and found out it’s medical definition is “threatened miscarriage,” that it happens with some frequency, and as long as the fetal heart-rate remains strong and the placenta is intact, the pregnancy will in all likelihood continue. *sigh.* So I did a little more research, because the Mifeprex is expensive, and I was starting to get worried that I had missed the window to terminate with a non-invasive method. I REALLY did not want to go into a clinic and have my insides vacuumed out. I found an inspiring medical abstract that encouraged me to place another order, this time for Misoprostol only – 20 x 200mg pills. Here’s the text below:

Multiple-dose vaginal Misoprostol and single-dose misoprostol plus oxytocin for termination of second-trimester pregnancy.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE:
To compare 2 different methods-multiple doses of misoprostol and a combination of misoprostol and oxytocin-for termination of pregnancy in the second trimester.

METHODS:
Between 2006 and 2008, 120 women undergoing termination of second-trimester pregnancy in 2 hospitals in Kermanshah, Iran, were enrolled in a randomized trial comparing 2 treatments. In each treatment group, an initial vaginal dose of 600 μg of misoprostol was placed in the posterior fornix. After 6 hours, an intravenous infusion of concentrated oxytocin was given to women in group A, and 400 μg of vaginal misoprostol was given every 6 hours to women group B, up to a maximum of 4 doses. The outcomes were compared via χ(2) and independent t tests.

RESULTS:
Within 30 hours, 96.7% of women in group A and 96.7% of women in group B delivered successfully. The average duration between induction and delivery time was 12.3±6.0 hours in group A and 12.1±6.0 hours in group B (P>0.05).

CONCLUSION:
The use of misoprostol with oxytocin, and multiple doses of misoprostol gave similar results for termination of pregnancy in the second trimester.

Week 13
So this time it only took 2 weeks to arrive. From what I read from the forums on offshore pharmacies, is a little more normal than one month. By this time I was starting to gain a little weight and my breasts were getting bigger. This is no fun – I urge you not to wait so long if you’re going to terminate, seriously.



Photo of what I received – labeled, dated blister packs. Regardless of where you order from, I think if it’s not sealed, accurately labeled and stamped with an expiration date, I probably wouldn’t trust it.

The night they arrived I decided I would take 2 pills (200mg each) vaginally before going to bed, instead of 4, as I had done under the supervision of medical professionals previously. Why? I was afraid of the pain and vomiting and diarrhea I had experienced when doing things the proper, clinic-approved way, with Mifeprex followed by 4x 200mg pills of Misoprostol; I thought this unpleasantry could be avoided with a lower dosage. It took about 3 hours before I felt pressure in my lower back, like a heavy period. I began to bleed. The next morning I awoke, was still bleeding, but hadn’t seen any evidence of a fetus or placenta, so I knew I was still pregnant. The bleeding continued, but subsided somewhat throughout the day. So the next night, I decided to do the same, with 3 pills inserted vaginally instead of 2. Again, similar results – after about 3 hours I had some lower back pressure, like a period, also accompanied by some minor chills but nothing crazy. I followed it up with 2 more pills, I’m not sure how many hours later, but I’m assuming around 4 since the chills had subsided and I was presumably past the ‘peak’ amount of medicine in my system. The following day I continued to bleed some, but again, the products of conception were not expelled. So the third night, I decided to do 4 pills. I felt some back pressure, bleeding, and at one point a few chills but nothing too intense. The next morning, I started feeling some very heavy cramping, not unlike labor pains. I breathed heavily and bent forward to ease myself through it. I was in the bathroom standing at the vanity when suddenly my pants became soaked in a clear fluid. My water had broken. I got onto the toilet, and a moment later everything came out – blood, lining, placenta, and a fetus about 4-5 cm long. I fished it out of the toilet to examine it and put it in a glass container. Later on I wrapped it in a flower bloom, said I was sorry, and buried it at the base of one of my plants. This is another reason I recommend not waiting so long to terminate — a well-developed fetus is not really something you want to look at, unless you are super relaxed and emotionally settled about this sort of stuff. Very early on, it’s a tiny blob, but it gets to look more and more like a little person the longer you wait. Nothing in the world could have outweighed my RELIEF that I was not going to have another baby, but all the same, it’s kind of icky, even if you’re a freak like me and totally fascinated by that shit.

Conclusions and recommendations
This experience taught me a few really important things, which I will pass on here. I’d also like to point out that I have no medical certification of any kind, and according to most rational people, have absolutely no business giving out medical advice. Now that that’s out of the way:

1. There DO exist offshore, illegal pharmacies, selling legitimate drugs. How you decide to trust one, well, that’s tricky. I threw caution to the wind and just decided to trust that it would arrive, that I wouldn’t be overcharged or have my identity stolen, that it was the correct drug within it’s expiration date, and that everything would be OK. Is this how all of them operate? I doubt it. All I can recommend is this one particular website I used – privatedrugstore, providing it is owned and operated by the same people that are doing it as I write this. I’ve included a screenshot of the site I bought from below for reference, in case it closes or the domain name gets bought by someone else.

2. Expect 2-3 weeks for shipping, and longer if extreme weather conditions or other disasters delay the post office.

3. Mifeprex is not necessary at all. In fact, FUCK Mifeprex. Without the Mifeprex, you can rest assured the process will be pretty mild. Mifeprex alone is responsible for a bit of queasiness. Mifeprex & Misoprostol in the body together equals a couple of miserable hours doubled over in pain, vomiting up bile, and chills up and down your whole body even with 5 blankets on top of you. With Misoprostol alone, it’s like a heavy period; the most intense part will be the cramps a few hours or a day after you take the pills, when your cervix starts to open up to let the products of conception pass. This is the not fun part, so be sure not to be at work or school when it happens – do this stuff on a weekend. And if you’re trying to hide this from your parents or whomever, make sure you can get the bathroom to yourself.

4. If you can afford it, order a little more than you think is necessary. Ordering just the Mifeprex and no Misoprostol, in retrospect, was a dumbass thing for me to do. And even with the Misoprostol, maybe because I was goofing around with dosage, or maybe because I was over 12 weeks along, I ended up using 11 pills in total. 4 x 200mg pills following a progesterone-blocker is generally recommended for up to 9 weeks LMP. So there’s a few factors to consider – it’s very hard to say in this case that it was specifically the 4 pills on the last night that resulted in success, OR if it was the multiple attempts across 3 nights that did it. When using herbs (for anything – a cold, a bacterial infection, whatever), slow and steady usually wins the race, e.g., you don’t generally take one dose and BAM, expect results, that’s a more recent phenomenon of modern medicine & technology. In any case, it’s comforting to know there’s extra if your first attempt doesn’t work. I also still have 9 pills in my drawer, for a rainy day.

5. Dosage… If I was to do it all over again, here’s how I would approach the important issue of DOSAGE: 4x 200mg pills vaginally of Misoprostol, each night upon going to bed, until the products of conception are expelled. This is mainly for convenience — if you lead a busy life, night time is probably the only opportunity you have to be prostrate for several hours. I’ve also received the recommendation to do it early in the morning – set your alarm for 5:00 am, insert the pills, and things will get going by the time it’s just getting light out — which can be a much less scary time than the night to try something out when you don’t know precisely what the outcome will be.

6. Open a new email account
to make your order, because once they have your email address, prepare to get SPAMMED with offers from other online pharmacies.

A few words on the whole damn subject
It seems to me that the FDA is making what COULD be an easy, private, inexpensive process, a royal pain in the neck. Why? Maybe to cover their butts from getting sued, in case you aren’t administered enough, and you have to go in for a surgical abortion if it doesn’t work. Either that, or its some Republican conspiracy to make pregnancy termination so incredibly unpleasant that you’re more likely to go through with the pregnancy, because god only knows, what this planet needs is more PEOPLE. I HAVE read that more than one key person has resigned from the FDA over the decision to stall Mifeprex’s over-the-counter availability – because they felt it was for political reasons and NOT grounded in health facts.

I think a common question this raises in most of our minds is “well, SHOULD it be so easy?” For many, the idea of a new life hangs in the balance, and some inner voice suggests it’s immoral for women to repeatedly seek abortions. To a woman that does not want a baby, I think the point of sperm meeting egg, or the point of a zygote implanting in the uterine wall holds little significance. I think many take desperate measures, when simple ones are not available. If there is zero detriment to the health of the woman in question, if it is inexpensive and doesn’t take her out of work — well… is it such a bad thing? I’ve read about Sylphium in ancient Cyrene, that physicians recommended it once a month for “preventing anything from forming, and eliminating anything that might be there.” Granted, ancient times were considerably more brutal than modern civilized ones, but in this one aspect – the lack of public scrutiny and controversy of women’s handling of their fertility, I cannot come up with a logical argument against it.

I know one day I may have to answer these questions for my daughter. And I know that it’s possible that one day, when she is a teenager, she’ll come home to tell me she’s pregnant and not ready to take the step of being a parent. If that happens, I want to be able to offer her an easy, simple, shameless and inexpensive solution. On the other hand, I don’t want to encourage her to go out having lots of unprotected sex, or to ignore holistic preventative birth control and the workings of her cycle because it’s just so easy to pop a pill. I want her to treat her body and temple with care and deliberation, and never to be at war with it, or at the mercy of it’s hormones or maladies, or to believe that it’s something to be controlled only with the help of big pharma.

Another important point of consideration, is the zero benefit + great detriment of unplanned pregnancies on the whole. I have seen instances in my own social circles, where slower child development *appeared* to correlate with mom not knowing that she was pregnant for the first few months. Like every mom, I watch my child’s development with care and concern. Even knowing from the moment her daddy and I decided to try and make a baby, even with taking all the precautions and supplements from the moment i thought she might be in my tummy, and pouring over countless books and forums about what I could do to help her growing little body and brain, I still worry. I still fret over details. I am relieved when I read that she’s on schedule with crawling, babbling, each new tooth that comes in and each new facial expression she gives me. Maybe it’s silly, but everyone with a kid knows what I’m talking about. It’s hard not to judge yourself, when you judge the progress of your little one.

This is not to say slower development is mom’s *fault*. It is the world we live in. Perhaps there was a time when not knowing one was pregnant for the first month or two had little impact on the health of the child eventually born. But these days, what with mass-produced food so lacking in nutritional value that one NEEDS supplements throughout pregnancy, what with lifestyles abounding with fast-food, alcohol and radiation, what with statistical evidence that fasting/dieting during the first critical months creates spikes in birth defects 9 months later, my opinion is that each pregnancy SHOULD be planned and nurtured. This doesn’t even touch on the implications of a social structure that leaves individuals with little to nothing in the way of social protections if they aren’t blessed with the luck of the marketplace. A woman knows when it’s a good time to have a baby, and when it’s not. And this is of greatest consequence to the ultimate health and happiness of our society, and planet.

    Hello thought I’d share my experience with everyone. I was 17 weeks when I completed the process. My first piece of advice is to be prepared. Be prepared for the physical pain and emotional as well. Have anything that you may need on-hand and close by likr something to cut the umbilical cord with and water because I was definitely thirsty. So anyway, i started at 3p.m two pills in the cheeks for thirty minutes then swallowed the rest with water. I did this every three hours. With the first dose I started to feel cramps but nothing major. They grew constantly but there was no bleeding at all. I had diahrea vomiting and chills. IT SUCKED. I wasn’t prepared for the pain at all. At a certain time I had given myself 45 mins to get going if nothing happened I was going to the hospital. At around 3 that morning I was on the floor in the frog position… Yea…I know… And as soon as I got on all fours there was a gush of water and soon after I saw the head. He was out and followed by the placenta. Right now I’m recovering. I made the mistake of trying to work the next day which was a bad idea seeing as I stand all day. My breasts are sore so expect everything as you would with a regular pregnancy and birth. To MS as much as this had its personal effects on me I have to say thank you. I was going crazy looking for a solution and you provided it along with a pretty necklace. Hope this helps someone.

    Hey MacroStoner and anyone reading this.

    Im pretty surprised to find out i am pregnant and learned it last saturday. I don’t remember exactly when my last period was except it was december. This month i experienced spotting lightly once which explains why my boobs are sore and I have been eating EVERYTHING in my path, turned down a cookie today though. Gee i don’t want to keep this pregnancy and just looked on this website yesterday i learned of it yesterday. I have taken multiple prego tests that all say positive, along with everything else there is no denying to it. I feel F******, with bad consequences. the clinics close to me don’t even do the pill and removing anything or vacuuming is around 1200 now that this website is all out of product can anyone direct me to another reputable site? I even tried WOMENONWEB but they don’t do deliveries to the US. I was thinking i need the whole kit even if im just in the first trimester. I have around 80 bucks to spend and really don’t want to keep pregnant.
    Please keep me in the loop. Appreciate all answers <3

  3. Krissy M. says:

    I ordered some misoprostol from here a while ago, and I ended up ordering a lot because a friend needed some but now I have 4 packs left, I can sell to you.

  4. geebee2121 says:

    First of all, thank God for this site. I emailed the person running this account and received an email back within 24hrs. I ordered the pack of three Misoprostol (this was the cheapest site by far.) I received my package four days after I ordered it, it was packaged discretely and came with a little gift (thank you!) I did not have a bad experience when taking this. I know most stories you will find online are horror stories, not everyone is the same and as I am evidence of that. The pills are real, and they DO work! I only took 1 pack of the pills but it did the job for me, but it was just a super long process because of that. I DO not recommend that you do this. If you order all the Misoprostol, take ALL the misoprostol as directed. I have two packs of them left, if anyone is interested. I hope to never have to use them again so I’m trying to get rid of them. Again, 10/10 recommend this site.

  5. Virginia says:

    Hi!

    I’m trying to buy through alldaychemist, but when I go to the check out is asking for the medical history… and the practitioner’s name.
    Does anyone knows anything about it?

    thanks

  6. Stella says:

    Hey ms

    I dont need my order modified, sorry about the confusion.I gone through and order and half and other than a bit of spotting nothing has happened. It looks like i will need the mifeprex also 😕 The order should work as nothing is expired yet. Im starting to worry that im further along. I have taken over 2000 mg on the last 48 hours and nothing . 😕

  7. Tab says:

    I would like to leave a review! I ordered my kit Tuesday. I received it on Friday. I took the first pill Friday night at 10pm. Nothing. Some cramping, and some water leaking Saturday. Saturday night I Laid in a hot bath, and went to bed. I woke up at 4am with bad gas, and covered in blood. Stood up to try to get to the bathroom and passed a huge clot. From 4-7 I was in the bathroom constantly contracting and passing clots. Even with a huge pad on, I bled all over my bed, ruined my sheets, 2 sets of clothes, and my comforter. By 12 the clots had stopped. I took the other 4 pills to be safe, talk about awful. Holding those in my mouth for 30 mins was excruciating.. I agree with the above, horrible chills, cramps, and vomiting after wards. I am still in the process of it all. I just took the last four about an hour ago, so now I’m just waiting for the worst of the horrors of the second set of pills that I honestly probably didn’t even need. Currently sitting on the couch wrapped in 2 blankets freezing, with awful cramps. I can’t wait for it all to be over.
    Overall, the worst of it was in the 4-7am hours when I couldn’t even hardly walk from the contracting and huge clots pouring out of me. I honestly wanted to strain the clots to make sure I passed everything but I had no chance too.
    Thanks mbs for the quick responses to email and the package, and for the gift! I will remember this site for anyone I know that may need the product, as I will be trying to get my tubes tied!

  8. Anon says:

    After searching around the web I found the link to the bodega. Much relief to spend only $35 versus $350.

    My story is that my partner and I are not ready, we are still working on our respective dreams in short. We made a mistake in timing so after this experience I am considering a copper IUD and for more freedom in our close passion.

    I knew the day where the mistake happened, took a test to confirm and first started the herbal route with Dong Quai and Black Cohosh with some Vitamin C. I think it partially worked but it was slowing me down and making me sick. I can say I do not want to swallow pills for a long time. I read a lot on this page just to make sure there were real people. I really didn’t want to risk one of those Template pharma pages. Got my order in a timely manner. With a little gift, thank you!

    I was divided on which method to take the medicine so…I tried orally first. Just my luck I got chills, I vomited up my dinner, got constipation and of course cramps and I started lightly bleeding. I didn’t like the chills so the next round I inserted them vaginally. Do it over the tub because I dropped a pill in the toilet lol. One order was more than enough pills I must say. The second round introduced more cramping and some discomfort. Nothing super unbearable, not more than an hour later I expelled and felt relieved. I am bleeding but the cramps are dying down.

    My guy and I are now relaxing together and talking and just giving one another support in the decision. He feels bad because he felt all the I had to do all the work but he was there for me.

    Thank you so much for providing the accessibility.

  9. Tori says:

    I bought 2 sets of the Misoprostol, took as directed and nothing. What did I do wrong? What should I do now? Suggestions please

  10. Shinia says:

    Hey there! I recently found this site and would love to buy from the bodega but I’ve noticed that there really isn’t a lot of activity on here lately. If I were to purchase, would the blogger still receive my order? Also, how long did it take you to get it? I’m 5 weeks as of today so I’m in a rush to get it done !! Thank you 🙂

  11. Emri says:

    Thank you – you are an angel. I’m in Texas and I did NOT want to have to deal with protesters at the Women’s Clinic, a mandatory ultrasound like I want to see my mistake, the subsequent 24-hour waiting period, and finally the $550 bill that would clear out my emergency fund.

  12. Mel says:

    Where do I get misoprostal w/o prescription. I’m going to try to order it from the bodega Wednesday. Would that be best? I believe I will be 14 weeks. Just wanting to be safe and effective w/o needing to go to a clinic.

  13. N says:

    Thank you so much, MS, for providing this service. You’re a brave, inspiring, badass woman.

    This is going to be a super long post, but when I was preparing to do this myself I wanted to read the most detailed information and as many experiences as possible, so hopefully this will help someone out.
    I ordered my misoprostol on Thursday,3/8. They arrived Saturday, 3/10, very discreetly packaged, along with a gift. I wasn’t able to take the pills until yesterday, 3/13. I was 9 weeks and 4 days.
    To be honest I was really, really nervous before doing this. I’ve had a surgical abortion before, and opted for that route at the time because I had read many horror stories of women who had terrible experiences with medical abortions, even as little as 6 weeks along. But my experience was nothing like that! In fact it was surprisingly easy. And empowering! Here goes:

    At around 1:30pm I took 800mg ibuprofen. I waited an hour and took my first dose of the misoprostol at 2pm– 4x200mg held bucally for 30 minutes, and then swallowed down with Gatorade. I chose to dose this way instead of vaginally because of a study I read that stated that vaginal administration carried a higher risk of uterine infection. I’d also read another study that found higher rates of GI side effects when miso was taken bucally/orally, but I figured I’d rather risk that than a uterine infection. Luckily I didn’t have any of the side effects. No vomiting, no diarrhea. Maybe the slightest bit of nausea initially, but that could have been my morning sickness. In fact, I was afraid that the miso wasn’t doing anything, because I didn’t even have any cramps. But I got up to pee about 3 hours after taking the first dose, and found a tiny bit of blood when I wiped. Thank God!
    I took my second dose at 7:00, 4 1/2 hours after the first. Again, bucally. This time I had a little bit of cramping, but nothing serious. I think the ibuprofen probably helped keep things at bay. I took some more Advil at 7:30. Around 8 I started really bleeding. I was expecting huge amounts of blood– I had read stories of women sitting on the toilet for hours, with clots just pouring out of them, but this didn’t happen to me. It was a little heavier than a heavy period, but totally manageable and not scary at all. I think I went through maybe four pads the whole night (2pm – 6am), and they were never soaked through.
    Around 8:30 (6 hours in) I passed the first bit of tissue. It was about two inches long, egg shaped, and flat. It was reddish brownish and was more solid than a clot. I scooped it out of the toilet and put it in a glass of water to examine it, but couldn’t really figure out what it was. From 9-10 I passed a lot of tissue, mostly just clotty endometrial lining. Some of these pieces were really large, at least the size of lemons, and felt weird coming out, but they never hurt. I think there were about 6 large pieces, and a lot of smaller clots. I always knew when they were coming. I was laying on the couch watching tv, and the flow of blood would speed up a little bit and I’d head to the toilet. Throughout the process I inspected a lot of the tissue. This was super fascinating to my scientific brain. At one point I found a whitish branched blobby thing, about the size of a golf ball. It looked like some sort of seaweed or anemone or something. I think this was some chorionic villi. I never saw a fetus. Maybe it was too small to see.
    From 9:30-11 (7 – 8 1/2 hours in) I had my strongest cramps, but nothing too bad, just a little worse than a strong period cramp. Or, as a lactose intolerant person, hardly worse than lactose cramps. They were deep and came in waves, and definitely caught my attention, but nothing compared to the nonstop pain some women have reported. Laying on the couch with a heating pad they were completely bearable. At 11 my bleeding had slowed, but I took the final miso dose just to be sure. I fell asleep at 11:45. I woke up at 1:30am with some cramping, took some more Advil, and fell back asleep. This morning I woke up at 6 to change my pad and there was hardly any bleeding.
    Today I feel great! I had a few serious cramps this morning, but overall I’m amazed at how good I feel. My morning sickness is gone, my breast tenderness is definitely subsiding, and I’m hardly bleeding. It’s like a normal period, but with bright red blood and, rarely, a few small clots. I actually went to work for a few hours this morning. I feel so relieved and so empowered. It’s an amazing feeling to be in control of my body. Especially after my experience with surgical abortion. That made me feel so powerless, and I swore I’d never be in that position again. I’ve been continuing to take Advil just as a precaution. It’s now 8:15pm and I have very minor cramps. I feel pretty confident that I expelled all the tissue, but will be picking up some black cohosh tincture tomorrow just to be sure. I’m also planning drinking a lot of raspberry leaf tea and eating an iron-rich diet for awhile.
    I think my experience went so smoothly because I really prepared myself ahead of time. I spent all last week reading other women’s experiences, and at night I would try to communicate with the fetal spirit to tell it I was sorry that this was not the right time for it, and asking it to please leave peacefully. I prayed a lot in the last couple of days leading up the it– I’m not religious, but I am spiritual. I think this really helped. Immediately beforehand I cleaned my house, then relaxed with a cup of tea and surrounded myself with healing stones and tarot cards I thought appropriate for the circumstances. I’m not sure if any of this had any effect other than putting my mind at peace, but I think that just that in itself was really important. My advice to anyone trying to do this herself is to do what you can to relax, put yourself at ease, and try to make the situation as peaceful as possible. A little ritual is good. Have a heating pad handy, take your pain medicine BEFORE you need it, and have some cookies and Gatorade and Netflix on hand. Good luck!

    Oh also, I was taking my temperature periodically throughout– it never got higher than 100. I’ve kept taking it today, just to be sure there’s no infection, and it’s been consistently down to normal.

    tl;dr: I was 9.5 weeks along. Took 3 doses bucally, 4x200mcg every 4.5 hours. Everything went super smoothly! Hardly any cramps, no nausea, no diarrhea. Today I feel almost entirely back to normal. Thanks MS!

    Please if any one knows where I can get the mtp kits asap!! I tired the website but it’s too expensive, I only have $70 to my name right now
    aglaelflores85@gmail.com please email me

    Thank you so very very much! I just ordered my MTP kit and now waiting. I just was curious, for some reason I noticed that receiving these meds in the USA is apparently against the law and can cause jail time? Since it has to be prescribed by a clinician/physician. I’ve seen that just a few but after reading comments here and doing more research on the web, it doesn’t seem to be true but I’m not 100% sure. If anyone knows? It doesn’t matter to me because I’ve already ordered and definitely going to do it. Just curious is all. I mean even if so, I’m not sure how they would find out about it. Thank you again for your wonderful site!!

    Jessica,

    This is definitely a black market operation, that’s why the packages come from a fake company name and are so discreetly packaged. I don’t think you would get in much trouble (although it depends on your state) but MS is definitely putting herself on the line for us. Don’t worry! I think ordering from here you don’t have much chance of getting caught since it’s not going through customs!

  17. Mala says:

    Just ordered a MTP Kit, should be here in a few days i wil update how it goes for anyone curious. I am about 5 1/2 weeks. I’ve had a real clinical abortion before at 16 and it was a nightmare experience I hope this goes better and will not have to go through this again.

  18. Jessie says:

    Hey Mala, how did you order the kit if its saying it’s currently out of stock?

  19. Laura says:

    Hi all,

    Is it recommended to just take the miso now?? I ordered both pills (12 miso and 1 mifepristone) just to be safe, but it appears that most of you didn’t even bother with the mifepristone. I’ll be doing this tonight so any advice. I’m only 4 weeks so hoping this will work.

    Best of luck to all of you.

  20. Jessica says:

    Ok. Thank you! I was just curious. Took my mifepristone yesterday morning took the 4 miso this morning around 9:30. It’s 12:35 now and I’m having lots of cramps. Not bad unless I stand up. It gives me a huge pain and then goes away. I’m bleeding somewhat. About half of my pad but not more than my regular period really. My periods usually are real heavy then get light. I’m nervous! Maybe I should have gotten extra miso? I’m not sure. It’s been almost 3 hours.

  21. Jessica says:

    Well never mind about previous post. Still not bleeding more than my regular period but about the same. Just passed a pretty big clot. So I’m thinking it’s working. Nothing bigger than a strawberry.

  22. Anon says:

    Hello,
    Does anyone know how long it takes to ship to an APO address (military address overseas). i ordered on the 28th and purchased priority shipping. Im just scared/anxious to get this done and overwith.

  23. Mala says:

    I had ordered the last kit right before it went out of stock, Jessie. It came in 3 days. I used it today at 6 1/2 weeks and everything went well other than It being painful but bearable I almost went to the hospital because I was getting tingly fingers and I was shaking bad but I calmed down once I breathed threw it. I did throw up 20 minutes into the Miso being under my tongue but it didn’t effect anything I would say to do it vaginally if you can to avoid it the chalky saliva. I’m still cramping and bleeding the normal amount. (I’ve had a professional abortion at 16 so I knew what to expect) but I would say for some reason this was more painful probably because I was on my own with no support. I also did not start bleeding until almost two hours after taking it in case anyone’s worried about that.

  24. Jess says:

    I keep trying to order today but it’s telling me Paypal isn’t working.

  25. The Macrobiotic Stoner says:

    PayPal blocked my account:-/. Working on a fix, might take me a few days…

    Help!

    I took the mife yesterday around 10 am.

    Took the miso (800 mg) today around 12 pm. So 26 hours apart.

    I took an additional 400 mg of miso at 5 pm, and 400 mg at 7pm. It is now almost 8 pm here.

    All of the miso I put between my cheek and my gums and let sit for at least 30 minutes before swishing the remains around and swallowing. The last time I let them sit until there was literally nothing left in my mouth of chalky spit before swallowing. My mouth tingles a little, and my tongue is a little sore.

    The only thing so far is lots of pooping and some moderate cramps/back pains. A little dizziness and nausea, but no vomiting. And worst of all, no bleeding or spotting at all. I’ve only a small amount of runny, clear discharge. A few times I thought I started bleeding, but turned out to only be this stuff.

    I’m 5 weeks, 1 day and TERRIFIED that this isn’t going to work. I cannot afford an abortion at the clinic. Please help. Should I be worried? How long should I wait before becoming concerned? Has anyone else had experience with this?

    If it means anything, I ordered my kit from the bodega.

  27. Jessie says:

    Bly? Did everything work for you ?

  28. Bly says:

    Jessie,

    It took over two days for me to start bleeding. Two days after taking the mife, and one day after taking the 800 bucally I decided to try the miso only route.

    (i know, i know. it’s dangerous to take too many pills, i should have waited)

    Anyways, I took them vaginally. IF YOU’RE READING THIS, TAKE THESE THINGS VAGINALLY. MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOME MOTRIN READY.

    800 mg, four hours apart, three doses. On the third dose I had bloody fingers. This is the first time I’d seen blood through the whole experience.

    I went to sleep and passed some stringy grey tissue the next morning. It’s been a week and already my pregnancy tests are negative and i’m barely bleeding. It wasn’t even as bad as my period. No fever, no nausea, nothing like that. I have an appointment next week to do an ultrasound, and I’m pretty sure everything is gone.

    All in all, this was a cakewalk aside from the waiting. Nothing like what everyone told me it was going to be. Of course the ultrasound will determine if that was a good thing (fingers crossed), but I’m pretty confident all is good in the world of my uterus.

  29. Bly says:

    And honestly, my cervix is weird. I had a doctor look at one of my ultrasound pictures when I was pregnant with my daughter and he said it was the longest cervix he’d ever seen. Aside from that, nothing abnormal about my reproductive system.

    It took almost a whole day with pitocin for my cervix to ripen enough for delivery when I was induced at 41 weeks pregnant. So maybe it’s just my weird cervix.

    Also I read that earlier abortions can take longer to start. So anyone who is reading this and worried, don’t lose hope!
