Please Bleed! Plants & Practical Magic. By Samantha Zipporah.
This book is a detailed & thoughtful guide to herbal options for fertility management as “Plan B” in the case of an accidental sperm exposure. The information is intended to be utilized by folks who are aware of the timing of both their fertile window & the date of their next expected menses, not for use as a regular contraception method, nor means for herbal abortion. This offering provides insight into how one may ally with the wisdom & power of plants to maintain the integrity of one’s ovulation & menstrual cycle, therefore avoiding undesired pregnancy.
