Black Cohosh- Can it really induce an abortion?

Yes. Black cohosh (also known as Actaea racemosa, black snakeroot, rattleroot, rattleweed, bugbane, bugwort and squawroot), does function in an abortifacient capacity- however, it is also known to act as an anticoagulant or blood thinner that can cause severe hemorrhaging following an induced abortion. This risk increases the later on in a pregnancy it is used. You should never attempt an herbal/medication without the supervision of a doctor- black cohosh, like any other abortifacient, can be dangerous and even deadly, and only a trained medical professional has the knowledge and skills to make sure the method is right for you, to prescribe it and instruct you on how to use it, what warning signs to look for in the event of an adverse reaction, and to help you if something goes wrong. Please do not use black cohosh without the supervision of a medical professional.

Impact of Abortion on your life?
No regrets - I finished college with a double major, planned my family and worked through my husband and I's emotional drama before we brought a baby into it. I am studying to be a midwife. I have a degree, a double major in Women's Studies and Biology. My husband supported my right to choice...
