How does the abortion pill work?
To understand how abortion pill reversal works, you first need to understand how the abortion pill works.
The abortion pill is actually two drugs that are taken to end and expel a pregnancy. The first drug, mifepristone, blocks your body’s production of progesterone. Without progesterone, the fetus will stop growing and the pregnancy will end.
The second drug, misoprostol, expels the pregnancy from the uterus by causing cramping and contractions. Misoprostol is typically taken 24-48 hours after mifepristone.
How does abortion pill reversal work?
Abortion pill reversal is most successful when attempted between taking mifepristone and misoprostol.
To begin, a doctor will prescribe and administer a high dosage of progesterone to reverse the abortion pill and replenish what was lost after taking mifepristone.
The dosage will continue under the doctor’s supervision, typically throughout the first trimester, and sometimes throughout the remainder of the pregnancy.
How effective is abortion pill reversal?
Abortion pill reversal is a newer procedure, but early reports show that the reversal is effective at least 61% of the time it is attempted. A key to its effectiveness is how quickly the progesterone can be taken after mifepristone is taken, and whether or not misoprostol was taken.
Even if it has been longer than 48 hours since the first medication was taken or if you have taken both medications, it may still be possible to reverse the process. Call the Hotline to talk with a nurse: (877) 558-0333
