(especially in the early stages?)

Just a hypothetical question.

Yes it can and will, if you are pregnant you definitely should not fast because the baby needs nutrients and if you don't take in enough of them your reserves will deplete first and then problems start to arise. Most water soluble vitamins and electrolytes will deplete first, then the fat soluble vitamins and calcium.

You should definitely not fast while pregnant and try to temporarily recover or at least seek help from an obgyn, they'll help you further.

I wonder if a person hypothetically ever got pregnant and wanted to abort if they could just induce a miscarriage via extended fast

I just want to leave my mark... make people feel like they belong... make people happy... and be happy... if my chaos-ridden brain will let me do that...

I am not mortal, I am lunar energy trapped on earth... one day I will be able to return home to faraway stars where i belong..

If I am lucky, one day I will have the great honour of offering if only a little beauty to this world... there is none within me, but every day I still try to grow flowers in the wasteland.

that's exactly what I was thinking about... because my fucking country banned abortion in almost all cases.

You could also double up on your birth control pills if you take them.

hey so if you’re in a pinch and feeling experimental, this is what i do as diy plan b. i’m really scared of plan b messing with my horomones and depression, and i don’t take birth control because i’ve had bad experiences with so many that i gave up, and i’m bi and don’t sleep with men very often anyway. but sometimes i realize i’ve been risky so this is what i do. it just triggers your period to come because it can’t implant and grow on a uterine lining that’s shedding! also obviously this is like ‘random college kid on the internet who heard from a friend of a friend’ quality advice and i have no evidence that it actually prevents or terminates pregnancy. but it does always make my period come so i suspect that it works.

what to do: get a bottle of gummy vitamin c vitamins (bc the gummies taste better any you’re gonna be eating a lot of them) and basically take one every hour or so (or a few every few hours whenever you remember, i’ve never really measured or kept track) and a few before bed so that it's consistently in your system. You pee out extra vitamin c so you cant just take it once a day. aim for like 10 a day idk? but a lot more than you’re supposed to take. do that for about three days and then stop completely (don't ween off). high vitamin c levels raise estrogen in your body, and in your cycle your period is triggered by a drop in estrogen, so going off vitamin c initiates that hormone change and makes your period start within a few days after you stop taking it.

i’ve never been pregnant so i’ve never done this to induce a miscarriage, but i learned about it from my roommate who’s friend in high school said she used it as a diy abortion multiple times. i haven’t been able to find much online unfortunately :/

also the only side effects i get is diarrhea sometimes but whatever
