If you’ve taken the first abortion medication, mifepristone, and are having second thoughts, it may not be too late to save your pregnancy! If this is your situation, please call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline number above immediately. You will be directed to a provider who can talk through options to potentially reverse the medical abortion process.
It’s not uncommon for women to regret the decision to have a medical abortion, commonly known as the abortion pill. The reversal procedure is 64-68% effective. It is possible to reverse a medical abortion in within 72 hours of taking the first medication, mifepristone.
A chemical abortion requires that you take two medications. The first, mifepristone, blocks your body’s production of progesterone that is needed for a pregnancy to continue. The second medication, misoprostol, is usually taken 24-48 hours later and causes contractions so your body can expel the pregnancy.
Abortion reversal works when attempted between the two pills. The highest success rate is when you begin the reversal less than 24 hours after taking the first pill, but reversals have been successful up to 72 hours after the first pill was taken. Timing is so important, though, so if you’re even considering reversing your abortion, call the hotline at 1-877-558-0333 immediately or for more information go to the APR website: https://www.abortionpillreversal.com/
