Noice!

As someone who struggled to get pregnant, allow me to tell you the wonderful birth control that is Ibuprofen. Ibuprofen (and any NSAID) is not suggested for women who are pregnant or wishing to be pregnant as it ups the risk of miscarriage and interferes with implantation of the egg.

During my struggles to become pregnant, I only succeeded after getting a new desk that didn't hurt my back and thus stopping taking ibuprofen. After I became pregnant, I read about medications to avoid and ibuprofen was listed as it interferes with implantation. After I gave birth, my doc asked what my birth control plan was and I said 800mg ibuprofen at bed time. She laughed but it worked for me.

Your mileage may vary but I think that can be said about most everything in the document linked.

Some of the things the document mentions is lowering progesterone as a birth control. While effective, do be wary as low progesterone can lead to other problems. I get depression from my low progesterone. There are other issues it can cause as well.

Some techniques will work, some are very dangerous and some others are just pointless. The safest method for an induced abortion is probably surgical abortion. But that is not accessible for everyone, or might bring risks that other methods might not have for that person.

There's an organization that helps humans who need an apportion but can't just go do a doctor. They offer knowledge and abortion pills that they are willing to send anywhere in the world. afaik they produce those pills themselves, but I'm not entirely sure. This is their webpage: https://www.womenonweb.org/

A while ago I conducted a bit of research about abortion, all that I remember was that some herbal methods that are advertised are overly dangerous. Don't remember any details, sorry.

Found the answer. The pills appear to use the same mechanism as the herbs mentioned in the pamphlet. Block or subdue the egg-uterine wall connection, then stimulate uterine contractions.

https://www.womenonweb.org/en/abortion-pill#toc2-1

The Mifepristone is taken first and blocks the hormones needed to sustain the pregnancy. After 24 hours, the Misoprostol is taken, which relaxes and opens the cervix and causes contractions in the uterus, helping to expel the pregnancy from the body.

I think it is still a better option for most people to use the pills, as they will be safer and have fewer side effects. But the knowledge of how the mechanisms work, and what options exist, is still quite useful.

I'm pretty sure, If I remember our pre-colonial myths correctly, this procedure is hormanally and psychologically damaging. We have so many monsters in our culture's folklore based on this one method of herbal abortions. One being that it is how Aswang or WakWak get their sustenance to how Tiyanaks are born. The idea is that it is damaging and it's always better to use modern methods of abortion than this.

sounds more like the idea is that anti-abortion sentiments have been around longer than modern medicine

Ok so this is very important, tho... While Ibuprofen's an effective painkiller with also this abortion side effect, you can overdose from it.

https://www.drugs.com/ibuprofen.html

It's also not recommended to take it more than like 2-3 days in a row.

So it's good to know and I'll recommend to women that seek abortion, but just be careful not to take too much or for too long.
