How Does the Abortion Pill Work?
A medical abortion utilizes two drugs to stop the pregnancy and to expel it from the uterus. Mifepristone, the first pill, blocks the hormone progesterone needed by the body to continue a pregnancy. Misoprostol is taken later to force the uterus to contract to expel the pregnancy.
How Does the Reversal Protocol Work?
Abortion reversal uses progesterone administered in the form of intramuscular injection, vaginal suppository, or oral dose. Progesterone used to reverse abortion has been shown to be safe and effective for both the woman and the fetus. It has been used for decades to support healthy pregnancies.
If you have only taken the first drug prescribed for an abortion, mifepristone, and you change your mind about the abortion, a medical professional will evaluate you to determine if you are a good candidate for abortion reversal.
An ultrasound will most likely be used to establish if the pregnancy is still progressing before administering the protocol.
A dose of progesterone will then be administered. You might be advised to continue taking progesterone during the first trimester of your pregnancy.
Will It Work?
Abortion reversal has been shown to increase the probability of the pregnancy continuing to 64-68%. These odds of success are greater when the abortion reversal is started as close to the mifepristone as possible.
