If you or someone you know has taken the first “abortion pill” to terminate their pregnancy and then regretted that decision, there may still be time to reverse the process.
In a medication abortion (or “chemical abortion”), the first pill taken is called mifepristone, or RU-486. This medication blocks a woman’s progesterone receptors, effectively cutting off support for the developing fetus. The second medication, misoprostol, is taken 24-48 hours later to complete the abortion by causing contractions to expel the fetus.
Abortion pill reversal involves restoring support to the fetus by taking significant doses of progesterone—a natural hormone doctors have long prescribed to prevent miscarriage.
If begun within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill, this reversal procedure has a 68% chance of counteracting the mifepristone and preserving a healthy pregnancy. No birth defects or adverse pregnancy outcomes have occurred with the abortion pill reversal process. You can learn more about what physicians know about this procedure.
