Can the abortion pill be reversed after you have taken it?
We know that facing an unplanned pregnancy can be confusing and stressful. Many women choose abortion and immediately experience feelings of regret and sadness. If this is you, there is hope. There is a successful protocol that may be able to reverse the effects of the abortion pill regimen. Through Abortion Pill Reversal, medical professionals have been able to save 64-68% of pregnancies.
What is the abortion pill, exactly?
You need first to have an understanding of what the abortion pill is before we discuss Abortion Pill Reversal. The abortion pill, also known as a medical or chemical abortion, is the two-pill process used to terminate a pregnancy. The abortion pill regimen is the administration of two pills, at two separate times, that serve two separate purposes. The first abortion pill, Mifepristone, destabilizes the pregnancy by blocking progesterone, which is a necessary hormone to promote fetal development. Nutrients are then cut off from the growing fetus, making it unable to survive. The second pill, Misoprostol, is taken at home 24-48 hours later and induces early labor, emptying the uterus. More than 50% of abortions that occur in the United States are via abortion pills. Side effects of the abortion pill include but are not limited to cramping, vaginal bleeding, nausea, fever or chills, incomplete abortion, and other serious risks. It is important that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision on your pregnancy.
What is the Abortion Pill Reversal process?
Abortion Pill Reversal involves the administration of progesterone to restabilize the pregnancy that has been destabilized by chemical abortion. Progesterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is especially essential during pregnancy. With Abortion Pill Reversal, our goal is to intercept the first and second abortion pills by administering the first dose of progesterone immediately. The patient is then provided with an initial ultrasound to confirm the viability of the pregnancy. From that point on, our medical staff continues to prescribe progesterone, as well as weekly ultrasounds through the twelfth week of pregnancy, at which point the patient is referred to an OBGYN provider for medical care. Through the remainder of her pregnancy, the patient will have access to classes, support sessions, and counseling services at A Woman’s Place Medical Clinic in Tarpon Springs.
What do I do if I want to reverse my abortion attempt?
Timing is important. The goal is to start the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol within 24 hours of taking Mifepristone, the first abortion pill. However, there have been many successful reversals if the protocol is initiated within 72 hours. Contact our staff at A Woman’s Place Medical Clinic or call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline at 877-558-0333 to be connected to a medical provider near you.
