20 Safest Natural Abortion Methods & Causes Of Abortions

Aspiring mothers welcome pregnancy. But sometimes, a woman may dread getting pregnant. Those who don’t want a baby may think of natural abortion methods. 

Pregnancy is not only a blessing; it is a responsibility too. And hence it is essential that a woman makes up her mind thoroughly before going ahead with a pregnancy. 

We don’t advocate or are debating any ethical concerns about abortion being the right of a woman or not. 

Indeed abortion is considered as the killing of a life. At the same time, it is worse to bring life to this world and not fulfill your responsibilities.

 So here we have enlisted and talked about everything regarding natural abortion methods.

The ways of natural abortion are nothing but causes of spontaneous abortion if unintentionally done to you.

What is natural abortion?

Natural abortion should not be confused with a miscarriage. Abortion is always intentional termination of pregnancy. Miscarriages are however mishaps.

So a natural abortion is not an abortion that happens spontaneously, and in fact, it is the use of natural remedies for inducing abortion.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists opposes the prosecution of women for self-induced abortion 1.

In their report, it was found that over 700k women search for methods for a self-induced abortion every year. The decriminalization of self-induced abortion brings along a lot of risks too. Ethics and health are challenged, and women need to be more aware of alternatives.

What are the advantages of natural (self-induced) abortion?

1) There are no side effects associated with natural abortion methods

Any surgical procedures for abortions will involve surgeries or any other invasive techniques. These might be vacuum aspiration, cutting of embryo, scraping, or surgical removal, or even a chemical-induced abortion. All these are bound to have side effects.

2) Natural abortion ways are cost-effective

Spontaneous ways of abortion don’t involve a considerable sum that one has to pay when getting a medical termination of pregnancy.

3) Self-induced abortion can be done at any time

One does not need a doctor’s appointment for spontaneous abortion. You don’t need to make any appointments. One can start the procedure as soon as one wants. This makes them better than MTPs.

4) Spontaneous abortion methods are useful even at the early stages

DIY abortion methods are very effective during the early pregnancy stage. At this time the doctor will most probably recommend a hormone shot to you that will have many side effects. But a natural method of abortion won’t do that to you.

5) Natural abortion methods to help maintain confidentiality

One can try home remedies for abortion without revealing her identity in front of anyone. It is handy in cases of rapes and other such events were announcing the pregnancy can have threatening outcomes.

6) Natural abortion ways prevent you from any malicious rackets

There is a huge fertility racket going on in hospitals where they steal your eggs or embryos and sell them off. Even in the case of abortion, this is possible that they take off the embryo and do unacceptable things after that. Natural ways of abortion will prevent you from this.

What are the disadvantages of Spontaneous abortion?

1) Spontaneous abortion is not guaranteed to give you the results

Nonetheless, these natural abortion causes are useful since time immemorial. But they can still fail miserably. And taking it all in your hand can put you and your baby at considerable risk.

2) DIY ways of abortion are slower

The at-home DIY ways of abortion are not immediate like the medical termination of pregnancy. They take time, and this can be very dangerous for your health.

3) Natural abortion ways work in combination

This means that generally, you have to follow more than one way of natural abortion to end the pregnancy successfully. This is why we have got you a long list of spontaneous abortion ways.

    • All the natural or home remedies of abortion are not equally effective for every woman. There is no scientific evidence of their results. Even if you use the right Aspirin abortion method it is possible that you don’t get your desired results.

    • Aspirin is an analgesic. It acts to suppress the sensation of pain. Side effects of Aspirin overdose exist just like for any other drug. Success rate of Aspirin abortion method is not proven. Natural abortion procedures are risky and not guaranteed.

    • No, a doctor most likely won’t recommend natural abortion home remedies. These methods are not 100% safe either. Side effects cross reactions and ineffective outcomes are common.

    • Concentrated tea is effective natural abortion agent. Women have tried drinking chamomile tea to naturally abort six months pregnancy. Allow the tea leaves to soak in warm water and take the herbal tea for abortion twice or thrice a day.

    • Aspirin abortion method involves taking 5-6 tablets with water a day. How quickly Aspirin causes abortion? Not certain. Better than mixing with juice consider drinking black cohosh or ginger tea.

    • Wrk 4 sm women, but no guarantee. Just don’t cook cinnamon for abortion method. Eat it raw or powder. Tk less in a day r u skin brkout

    • Early morning empty stomach for abortion methods involving eating something. Otherwise hot warm bath can be taken at any time.

  3. Comment:hy guys I used acacia pods and banana leaves and after 3days

  4. Hi. I’m 4 days late in my period but I have cramps and bloating. Took a preg test and it was negative. Also I have been under a lot of stress and anxiety the past 2 weeks. Have been taking the cinnamon for 2 days now but no bleeding. Should I keep taking cinnamon or change to another method? Thanks

  5. Curious if the cinnamon method worked? I have organic one and didn’t know how much can be taken. Other methods work for u ladies ???

  6. Vitamin C worked for me. No actual confirmed pregnancy with a test but I was 4 days late and have never been late. Only early so if there was a pregnancy I would’ve been 2 wks. Took 500 mg of vitamin C every hour for a day and half and a few times after bleeding just to be sure.

  7. hi everyone, am gonna try one of this home remedy tomorrow. just want to ask; am 5 weeks and 6 days pregnant if i try one of the remedy will it work for me?

  8. Hi Ashma,
    There is no guarantee. I tried all of these and ended up going to the abortion clinic and getting the pill. So good luck.

  9. I have one kidney..will using the aspirin kill me?? And I just ate a table spoon of ground cinnamon but I ate 30minutes ago..will that still work??and do I repeat this task of cinnamon eating daily for sever al day or just multiple times a day for several days??

  10. Hi.. i think I’m 9 to 10 weeks.. and I’ve been mixing cinnamon with water for 3 days now but today after taking the cinnamon i ate and drank soda.. but I vomited and all came out at once. Is it bad to eat or drink as soon as we swallow the cinnamon?? Is it going to work for me?

  11. I don’t know if I was pregnant but I was a week late on my period with no breast tenderness, no cramps, and no hormone acne. Usually I get those symptoms a week before my period but no sign of it. I woke up yesterday and went for a fasted walk. I then bought papaya, chamomile and vitamin c gummies. I got home and ate half the papaya on an empty stomach and drank a cup of chamomile with 1000mg of vitamin c. An hour later I started getting cramps and noticed light bleeding so I drank 2 more cups of chamomile and took increasing amounts of vit c every hour during the day. This morning I woke up to a full on period.

  12. Hi,

    Can I try couple of this method at the same day , or I need to wait from one to the other?
    Want to try the Sesame / cinnamon / vitamin C…

  13. Comment: have delay my periods this day 4 from my periods and have not yet seen it am only having stomach pains is it possible am pregnant

    • Just late period and stomach pain is not enough to say anything. Take a test if you don’t get your period for one week. If the stomach ache is severe consult a doctor.

  14. Hi guys, I’m 3 weeks pregnant, confirm with a pregnancy test. I been trying the papaya on the morning, also the chamomile tea all day, after 2 days started light bleeding. I’m gonna start on vitamin C today. Also I found Dong Quai and Black Cohosh pills at Walmart. I’m going to try that too, just in case. I will update later.

  15. I am two weeks late for my period. And I have not taken a pregency test yet maily because I’m not sure how soon they will be able to read if I am. I’m usually never late snd this is super stressing me out. Will any of these help me start if I’m not and which one would work best if I am pregnent. Im only 18. I cannot be having a baby.

  16. Try this as routine.

    Combine Chamomile and Parsley leaves into 1/2 L of hot water. Drink that as your liquids for the morning. Do the same for your liquids in the evening. (1L total)
    In the morning with your tea, take your cinnamon dosage, vitamin C (make sure it dosnt have that bioflav stuff in it) and half your evening primrose dosage.

    At night with your drink take cinnamon and vitamin C again. Insert the rest of the evening primrose before sleeping.

    Do this for a few weeks.

  17. My sister is pregnant, and since she’s still not ready to become a mother, she would like to have the baby aborted. It’s great to learn that spontaneous ways of abortion are cost-effective and won’t have any side effects. Although, it’s surprising to learn that DIY procedure is also possible, but it is the most effective during the early stage of pregnancy.

  18. Vitamin C and black cohosh worked for me at 8 weeks, it took about 2 weeks but I did finally get a period. You have to be diligent and don’t skip any per day. Drink a lot of water because they dehydrate you. Adding cinnamon pill once per day also helps.
