If you have recently taken the abortion pill and questioning your decision, you are not alone! There are women just like you who felt the same. You don’t have to take our word for it, though. You can read their stories here. In this blog, we hope to address some of the frequently asked questions about the abortion pill reversal.
How does the abortion pill reversal work?
We need first to explain how the abortion pill works to answer this. When you take the abortion pill, the first medicine, mifepristone, blocks progesterone which helps your pregnancy progress and your baby grow.
When taking the abortion pill reversal, the progesterone level is increased in order to flood the body. We do this because the higher progesterone levels will outcompete the mifepristone from hindering the pregnancy’s growth. Additionally, the progesterone regimen is usually continued for the rest of the first trimester.
Why is progesterone used in the reversal, and what are the possible side effects?
Progesterone, a natural hormone, helps to nurture and sustain pregnancy. By giving extra progesterone during the abortion pill reversal, the goal is to outnumber and outcompete the first abortion pill to reverse the effects.
Progesterone is not new. In fact, it has been used in pregnancies for decades without any significant undesired effects. Additionally, progesterone has been used for high-risk miscarriage pregnancies and used throughout the first trimester without issues. Not only that but progesterone is also used in In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) pregnancies with no ill effects.
With any hormone, there are some risks. Yet, since progesterone has been so well tolerated, there is no reason to label the procedure “dangerous.”
How long does the abortion pill reversal take to work?
When it comes to the abortion pill reversal, time is of the essence. You should start the abortion pill reversal within 24 hours of taking mifepristone. According to Abortion Pill Rescue Network, there have been successful reversals when treatment begins within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill.
What is the success rate of abortion pill reversal?
The Abortion Pill Reversal Group says, initial studies have shown it has a 64-68% success rate.

What about congenital disabilities?
The abortion pill reversal, up to date, does not appear that the abortion pill causes congenital disabilities.
Progesterone, used in the reversal process, has been safely used in pregnancy for over 50 years. In addition, initial studies have found that the congenital disability rate in babies born after the abortion pill reversal is less or equal to the rate in the general population.
