I have been told that this herb is good to take when you discover you are pregnant, and take it for the first trimester. I have a history of miscarriages so I'm keen to try this - do I understand correctly that it is safe to take while pregnant and may actually help to prevent miscarriage (if the issue is hormonal)?

False Unicorn Root
19-04-2010 18:58 #2
Hi there Anntim,
Yes, false unicorn root has been used traditionally to tone the uterus, keep progesterone levels high and decrease risk of miscarriage. However, it may not be right herb to use in your situation.
There are many reasons for miscarriage and even it the cause is hormonal you may need a combination of some other herbs for best results. If the cause is mixed e.g. immunological and hormonal—again the approach varies.
The key is to work with practitioner that can request the right type of tests and then tailor your treatment appropriately.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions or need any clarification.
