If you have taken mifepristone, the first abortion pill medication, and you regret your decision, help is available. You may be able to reverse the effects of this medication with a protocol called the abortion pill reversal.
You must act quickly to increase the likelihood that your pregnancy can be saved. We’ll outline what you can expect from the protocol below.
What is Abortion Pill Reversal?
Medical providers may prescribe progesterone to try to counteract the effects of mifepristone. Mifepristone is used in medical abortion procedures and blocks progesterone, which supports a growing pregnancy.
Progesterone can reverse the effects of mifepristone. A case study showed this protocol was successful in 64% of cases, but the success rate decreases the longer you wait to acquire progesterone. This hormone can be administered orally, vaginally, or by injection.
This hormone has been used to safely support pregnancies for over 50 years and is not known to cause any ill effects. Moreover, it’s unknown to cause birth defects at a rate higher than the general population.
It is important to note that taking mifepristone without misoprostol can cause severe bleeding, which may require hospitalization. This can occur regardless of whether you take progesterone.
