Many times, a woman regrets taking the abortion pill and questions if it is possible to reverse the effects. In some situations, the abortion pill can be reversible with a protocol called the abortion pill reversal.
How Does the Abortion Pill Work?
The abortion pill is a series of 2 drugs taken to terminate a healthy, growing pregnancy. First, mifepristone is taken to block the progesterone the body makes naturally. This hormone supports the pregnancy, and without it, the pregnancy ends. Next, a woman takes misoprostol which works by inducing uterine contractions that force the pregnancy out of the body through a woman’s vagina with bleeding and cramping.
How Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?
The abortion pill reversal protocol works by using high doses of progesterone to counteract the effects of mifepristone. It is thought that introducing large amounts of progesterone will cancel the effects of mifepristone.
This protocol will be attempted if only the first drug, mifepristone, has been taken.
One study showed the abortion reversal protocol to successfully reverse the effects of mifepristone in 64% of pregnancies. The odds of success decline the longer a woman waits to start progesterone after taking mifepristone.
The abortion reversal protocol is safe for both the mother and the baby. Progesterone has been commonly used in pregnancy for over 50 years to support growing pregnancies.
