Hi Jasmine,

You should join Susuns Wise woman forums and ask your question. Someone there may have info.


I have had the exact same experience. Taking high dosages of vit c, black cohosh and dong quai for one week after about a week from conception. I never felt any effects from the herbs. Definitely zero signs of toxicity. I have had an early ultrasound and the baby has stuck. I am now worried about the threat of birth defects as I have read all over the internet that teratogens are most harmful in the first few weeks of pregnancy.

Could someone give me some advice?
