Dear ascorbic acid is commonly known as Vitamin C. It does not kill sperms and have no role in pregnancy protection.

I know that I made a mistake and that I cannot have a baby because I am still a baby in my mother s eyes. I am considering taking ascorbic acid because I read up on the subject and it seems to induce menstruation.
