If you’ve taken mifepristone, the first drug in a medication abortion or “abortion pill,” and regret your decision, there is hope. Starting the Abortion Pill Reversal method could allow you to continue your pregnancy and reverse this medication’s effects.
Turlock Pregnancy and Health Center supplies women with the information they need to make confident pregnancy decisions and learn about their health. If you have questions about the abortion pill or need help learning about your options, we’re here for you.
How Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?
During a medication abortion, two medications end an early viable pregnancy. Mifepristone blocks progesterone, and misoprostol causes uterine contractions that expel the pregnancy tissue from the body.
If you’ve taken mifepristone but not misoprostol and have second thoughts, Abortion Pill Reversal may provide another chance. This method uses progesterone to act in opposition to mifepristone and reverse its effects.
Progesterone will be administered orally, vaginally, or by injection. Time is of the essence, so your chances of saving the pregnancy decrease the longer you wait. One study found this hormone saved pregnancies in 64% of cases.
This hormone is not known to cause any adverse side effects and has not been found to cause birth defects at a rate higher than that of the general population. However, if you take mifepristone and not misoprostol, know that some women have experienced severe bleeding and require hospitalization.
If you regret your decision, contact the Abortion Pill Rescue Network’s 24/7 helpline to locate a provider and learn about this method. Acting quickly is critical.
