LazyGuy agony auntVinegar itself is harmless and at least some women I know who have been pregnant loved very large pickles (zure bommen). Apparently it helped settle morning sickness.

Medically there is no reason not to eat them and of course they come with plenty of vinegar.

But anything taken to excess can be a poison, famous case a while ago was a of a british girl poisoning herself with water. Simple clear water but drinking WAY to much of it.

You would have to drink an amazing amount of water/vinegar, so much so that you would not just cause an abortion but possible kill yourself as well. I am not sure suicide would be the most efficient way of getting an abortion although it is 100% effective. Unless of course you slip into a coma.

Frankly, if she wants an abortion she should go to a clinic, there is a reason abortion is legal and it is to avoid that countless extremely damaging self-mutilating old wive rememdies people have come up with through the ages.

Just how much does she drink of it? Are we talking bottles full or a small glass? Google vinegar and morning sickness and you see a lot of links suggesting it as a remedy.

I think this is more an old wives tale.

Drinking dilute acid can't be any good for you, but your stomach is FULL of acid so I don't think it's going to have any specific effect such as an abortion.

However, if you make yourself ill when you are pregnant then it is bad for the baby so it could cause harm, same as drinking alcohol and smoking. It's more likely that the baby will be born sick and will need even more care than normal.

Talk to your mum and she should talk to your aunty about why her daughter is trying to give herself a backstreet abortion.

Good Luck!! xx

sexi agony auntHi

Im sure that it will cause some damage to the baby. I know that Vinegar dries up your blood and that is what the baby needs to stay healthy. if she has not blood - due to her drinking vinegar then she would harm her baby. When you are pregnant, you dont get your period and by her drinking that vinegar her blood will dry up.

Hope this has helped you.
