To understand the abortion pill reversal process, let’s talk about how the abortion pill works.

How Does the Abortion Pill Work?

The abortion pill is a chemical form of abortion only recommended for use in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. The process uses two separate drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, to end the pregnancy.

Mifepristone is used to prevent the body’s absorption of the hormone called progesterone. Progesterone is necessary for a baby to grow and develop — without it, the pregnancy will not be able to continue. After Mifepristone is taken to end a pregnancy, Misoprostol is then administered to start a process of contractions to deliver the fetus. Common risks to

How Does Reversal Work?

An abortion pill reversal is available to women who have started the chemical abortion process but are having second thoughts. During a reversal, a large amount of progesterone will be prescribed to counteract the effects of mifepristone, the first drug taken in the abortion pill process. This influx of progesterone will provide the developing baby with the nourishment and support it needs to continue growing. Since physicians pioneered the reversal process, over 3,000 women have successfully reversed an abortion and delivered healthy babies later in pregnancy.

It’s important to note that in order for a reversal to be effective, it should be started ideally within 24 hours of starting a chemical abortion and must begin before misoprostol (the second drug) has been taken. Call 1-877-558-0333 now if you want to learn more.

Are There Any Risks?

Additionally, studies have revealed that the abortion pill reversal process is not related to any birth-related issues or birth defects. If you want to undo , it’s important to act as quickly as possible. Contact the 24/7 medical helpline of The Abortion Pill Rescue Network at 1-877-558-0333.
