If you have taken Mifepristone, the first pill in the two-step abortion pill process and regret the decision, it’s not too late! Follow the Abortion Pill Reversal instructions carefully to determine whether your pregnancy can be saved. If you want to attempt an abortion pill reversal, do not take the second pill prescribed to you.
First, an ultrasound will be required to confirm whether the pregnancy is still viable.
The first pill in the RU-486 medical abortion process stops the flow of progesterone to the pregnancy. Progesterone is a hormone naturally produced by the ovaries that is necessary for the pregnancy to continue. The abortion pill reversal process works after a doctor prescribes progesterone by oral consumption or injection, a treatment that you would continue through the first trimester. With the doses of progesterone, the hope is to reverse the effects of Mifepristone.
Approximately 68 percent of women who attempt the reversal process for their pregnancy, with the high-dose oral progesterone protocol, carry to term and deliver.
According to The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), consuming Mifepristone does not cause birth defects. Neither will injections or consumption of progesterone, as they contain the same hormone that is created by a woman’s body naturally during pregnancy.
