If you’ve only taken the first dose of the abortion pill and changed your mind, it could be possible to reverse the effects. The procedure is called abortion pill reversal, and a 2018 peer-reviewed study found that it’s about 64-68% effective without any increase in birth defects.
What Is the Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill or medication abortion terminates a pregnancy using two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. FDA-approved for up to ten weeks of pregnancy, women typically take the first drug in an abortion clinic and the second drug at home about 24-48 hours later.
The first drug, mifepristone, works by stopping the womb from absorbing progesterone. By cutting off this vital pregnancy hormone, the pregnancy will not survive. Then, misoprostol will trigger uterine contractions to expel the embryo or fetus through a series of cramping and bleeding.
How Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?
Because the first abortion drug (mifepristone) blocks progesterone, abortion pill reversal can potentially reverse the effects of the abortion pill by flooding the body with progesterone. The sooner you begin the procedure, the greater your chance of success.
