Can You Reverse The Effects Of The Abortion Pill?

Every unexpected pregnancy has three options: abortion, parenting, and adoption. Maybe you examined each one and decided to move forward, but now have second thoughts. Or, you chose the abortion pill and took the first dose, but are unsure you want to continue.

We can help you navigate this complex situation. 

How does the abortion pill work?

The abortion pill terminates a pregnancy by utilizing two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. 

The first drug, usually taken in a clinic, blocks progesterone. Without this hormone, the uterine lining thins, and the embryo or fetus can no longer implant or grow. 

After 24 to 72 hours, you would begin taking misoprostol. This drug causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy through the vagina with cramping and bleeding.

Can the abortion pill be reversed?

It is possible to reverse the abortion pill if you’ve only taken the first pill.

Known as abortion pill reversal, it works by adding progesterone back into your body to flood the receptors, so the pregnancy can continue. 

Progesterone has been used safely in pregnancy since the 1950s. It’s also prescribed to prevent miscarriage and premature birth.

A 2018 peer-reviewed study showed abortion pill reversal worked 64-68% to save a pregnancy from termination.

When should abortion pill reversal start?

If you took the first abortion pill, mifepristone, and now want to reverse the effects of the pill, time is of the essence. The sooner you start treatment, the greater the chances of success.
