Answer
Hello, sarah,

This site will not allow me to send you a private email. If you want the message private, you have to make it so. You are the only person who can do that. There is a checkbox when you leave the message. When you respond to this message, see if the checkbox is still there, and check it.

Given that at times the pain gets to be unbearable, you should NOT take any more pills. They can actually RUPTURE your uterus. That's not all. Cytotec won't always cause abortion. The manufacturer says a pregnant woman should never take it, because it can kill her. It can cause her to bleed to death, or give her an infection that will kill her within hours. Please keep in mind that abortion is illegal in Philippines as well. Whoever sold you those pills needs to be prosecuted.

When you say you are in your 5th week of pregnancy, are you counting from your last menstrual period, or from when you think you conceived?

What kind of problems are you facing that seem to make abortion a desirable answer? Perhaps I can help you with some better answers. There are also organizations in Philippines that will help you.

You deserve better than abortion. Please don't take any more pills. Just take care of yourself. If you have any problems, get some medical care immediately. Please let me know how you do.

Expertise

I can help women with the consideration of their decision, and with resources, and I can share my own experiences as the mother of seven and grandmother of eleven. My approach is to show love and concern, and help women work through the issues, emotional, spiritual, practical. I also help women deal with boyfriend and family issues. I am not a doctor, but I have done extensive medical research, so I may be able to help with information. I am female. When you write, if you are or were pregnant, please tell me how far along you were or are, and if you have had an abortion, please tell me what kind. Thank you.

Experience

I have been working with women who are considering abortion for several years. I also work with women who have had abortions. Our family has also experienced adoption, so I can talk about that as well.

Education/Credentials
I am mostly self-taught. I also studied midwifery for awhile. I have spent years doing research on this topic. In fact, I have been doing research and working in this area since the early 1970's. I have been helping women online for a few years, under the guidance of a woman who was formally training in counseling.
