What is the Abortion Pill Reversal?

If you’ve begun a medical abortion and changed your mind, it might not be too late to reverse your abortion. Here’s what you need to know. 

First, let’s talk about which kind of abortion method can be reversed and that’s the abortion pill (also known as a chemical abortion, RU-486, mifepristone, at-home abortion or a medical abortion). The abortion pill isn’t the same as the morning after pill or Plan B. The abortion pill is an attempt to end a known pregnancy, not prevent one.  

The abortion pill is usually a two-step process using two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. 

Mifepristone (the first pill) lowers the progesterone needed to sustain the pregnancy to unsafe levels, thereby ending the pregnancy. If your body doesn’t have the progesterone it needs, the pregnancy will end.   

And this is where the abortion pill reversal procedure comes in. 

Abortion Pill Reversal: 

The Abortion Pill Reversal is a simple regimen of progesterone, prescribed by a doctor, which works to replenish the progesterone needed to sustain the pregnancy.  

The reversal has a 64-68% success rate. And, if the reversal is successful, there is no increased risk of birth defects for the baby. The reversal process is natural and safe, and done under the care of a doctor.
