Can the Abortion Pill be Reversed?

In the chaos of an unplanned pregnancy, it can be easy to make a snap decision out of fear. But, what if you have second thoughts after the initial shock wears off?

 

If you’ve taken the first half of the abortion pill, but changed your mind, know that you still have options! Abortion pill reversal treatment may be the right choice for you. Keep reading to learn more. 

What is Abortion Pill Reversal? How Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?

As the name suggests, abortion pill reversal is a process that competes with the effects of the first dose of the abortion pill, mifepristone. 

 

Mifepristone stops your body from producing the hormone progesterone, which enables the body to maintain the pregnancy. In abortion pill reversal, your doctor prescribes a progesterone pill to provide the body with extra progesterone, which helps the pregnancy to continue. 

What is the Abortion Pill Reversal Success Rate? 

Initial studies have shown a success rate of 64% to 68%[1]. However, be aware that the results of your specific situation can’t be guaranteed. 

 

When Should I Start the Abortion Pill Reversal Process?

As soon as possible! The Abortion Pill Reversal Network states that, ideally, you should start the process within 24 hours of taking mifepristone[2]. But, don’t let that discourage you! There have been successful cases where treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first half of the abortion pill! 

 

What are the Side Effects of Abortion Pill Reversal?

Although progesterone is a natural hormone, you may still experience some side effects[2] from the abortion pill reversal treatment, such as:

 

  • Lack of energy

  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

  • Headaches

  • Gastrointestinal discomfort

 

Be sure to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest to alleviate your symptoms! It’s also important to note that some forms of progesterone include peanut oil. If you have a peanut allergy, let your doctor know before starting the reversal process so they can provide you with an alternative form of progesterone.
