Oops! Drank juiced herbs!!
Those included were oregano, sage, summer savory, thyme, and basil. I'm 24 weeks along, and on progesterone shots to prevent another preemie. It was a bundle of herbs, so it was a rather high concentration mixed with greens, carrots, and fruits. How worried should I be? How likely will sage and oregano induce labor or bleeding in a high risk pregnancy?

I've never heard of those herbs causing labor

Re: Oops! Drank juiced herbs!!
So, you know women who have taken them throughout pregnancy without a problem?

Is juicing different then just eating them? Cuz, I've eaten all those herbs through my pregnancies without problems.

Yea. I've used all those herbs. Not sure where you heard that it would cause labor or bleeding.

Yeah, those are all safe herbs while pregnant.

Re: Oops! Drank juiced herbs!!
They're safe in normal amounts used in recipes, but not as teas, or if consumed in bulk, which I did. :-/ They're emmenagogues, but I can't find any information on the dosage that causes problems, or if they can cause problems after the first trimester.

Again..where did you hear this?

Re: Oops! Drank juiced herbs!!
hmm, I have never heard of any of these being a problem, but if you are concerned, you should call your dr or mw. He/she would likely know better than any of us.

Re: Oops! Drank juiced herbs!!
Pretty much every site that listed safe and unsafe herbs had sage listed as one to avoid.
