Read this article for more information about the abortion pill, what abortion pill reversal looks like, any possible risks, and what steps you can take to make the best decision for your pregnancy.
How Does the Abortion Pill Work?
The abortion pill, also a medication abortion, is a series of two different pills: Mifepristone and misoprostol.
The first pill, mifepristone, is an antiprogestin. This means that it blocks the pregnancy from receiving the hormone, progesterone. Without this hormone, the fetus cannot continue to grow and so this ends the pregnancy.
Within 24-48 hours, misoprostol is taken to induce uterine cramping. This forces the uterus to expel the fetus and uterine lining. There are risks with the abortion pill that are important to be aware of.
Can You Reverse the Effects of the Abortion Pill?
If you act quickly, it is possible to reverse the medication abortion if you’ve only taken the first pill, mifepristone. Just as the first abortion pill prevents the pregnancy from receiving progesterone, the abortion pill reversal protocol requires a high dose of progesterone.
The sooner you’re able to start the abortion pill reversal process, ideally within 24 hours of taking mifepristone, the greater chance you have of success.
Is Abortion Pill Reversal Safe?
Doctors have been treating high-risk pregnancies with the natural hormone, progesterone, for decades, so a high dose of progesterone does not pose a risk to women wishing to reverse the abortion pill.
In one study, reversal success rates were as high as 64% to 68%. Additionally, the study found that there was no evidence of an increased risk of birth defects or health to the woman.
