Abortion Pill Reversal

It Is Possible!

Did you know that it’s possible to reverse the effects of the abortion pill?!  That’s right.  If you experience regret after taking the first medication in the medical abortion process- RU486 (also known as Mifeprex)-  it is possible to counteract its effects and continue the pregnancy.  Ideally within 72 hours of taking the “abortion pill”, doctors can prescribe high doses of progesterone to reverse the action of RU486.  Progesterone is the natural hormone needed to nourish and sustain a pregnancy.  The abortion pill (RU486) works by blocking the hormone from the pregnancy, causing the embryo to detach from the uterine wall within 72 hours.  Natural progesterone is prescribed and evidence has shown success rates of more than 50% of women can continue their pregnancies through the help of this protocol.   It is important that if you change your mind after taking the first medication of the medical abortion procedure, you call the hotline phone number (877- 558- 0333) to be connected to a physician in your area that can offer you this protocol treatment.  

The second medication in the medical abortion procedure is called Cytotec (or misoprostol)- its role is to cause the uterine cramping to expel the pregnancy.  Do not take this second medication if you have changed your mind, and would like to reverse the abortion.  The earlier you begin the progesterone treatment, the better the chances are that the abortion reversal could work.  An ultrasound will confirm if the baby is still viable, and they will continue to monitor you closely through the first trimester.  Side effects from progesterone treatment are fatigue, heartburn, and soreness at the injection site—it has been used safely in pregnancies for over 40 years. 

There are people who want to help if you have a change of heart after beginning the medical abortion procedure.  Don’t wait to call for help- 877-558-0333

THE ABORTION PILL

Have you ever wondered what the abortion pill does and how it works? Have you had your abortion consultation and still have questions about the abortion pill?

Well, the term is called, Medical Abortion and it’s used for under 10 weeks gestation, it’s actually a combination of two different medications, taken two days apart. The first medication is called RU 486, or Mifeprex. It blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the embryo- causing disconnection from the uterine wall and the heartbeat stops. The second set of pills, called Cytotec or Misoprostol, is taken at home 48 hours later. It causes uterine cramping to expel the pregnancy. Often heavy cramping and bleeding occurs, and could last for up to 1-2 weeks.

IF for any reason, someone changes their mind after taking the first medication, but BEFORE taking the second medication, a reversal protocol could be possible. It’s best to begin the reversal protocol within 72 hours of taking the RU486 pill. High doses of progesterone are used to counteract the RU 486. There is a nationwide hotline number to call that will connect the woman with a medical provider to begin this treatment. The success rate is between 64-68%, meaning their pregnancies continued and they delivered their babies.

If you have taken the Abortion Pill and regret this decision – call the 24-hour hotline 877-558-0333 and they will connect you with a medical professional who can guide you towards reversing the effects of the abortion pill.
