What is the treatment to reverse the abortion pill and how does it work?

In most cases, an ultrasound will be performed as soon as possible to confirm heart rate, placement and dating of the pregnancy. Life Choice Pregnancy Care Center offers FREE and confidential ultrasounds, contact us to see if you are eligible. After an ultrasound, the supervising physician or another medical provider will then prescribe progesterone, given as a pill to be taken orally or vaginally or possibly by intramuscular injection. The treatment will usually continue through the first trimester of pregnancy. 

“Progesterone is the natural hormone in a woman’s body that is necessary to nurture and sustain a pregnancy. The first pill in the abortion pill regimen blocks progesterone’s actions. By giving extra progesterone, we hope to outnumber and outcompete the first abortion pill in order to reverse the effects and provide an opportunity to save the pregnancy.” (© 2024 Abortion Pill Reversal / Abortion Pill Rescue Network).

Time is of the essence!

Don’t forget: time is of the essence! This is not to cause you to panic or increase any anxiety you may be experiencing but to help you realize the importance of acting fast! According to the official Abortion Pill Reversal website, the goal is to start the protocol within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone, or RU-486. However, there is still a chance of successfully reversing the abortion pill if treatment is started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill, or potentially longer. The sooner you can start treatment to reverse the abortion pill, the greater your chances that the reversal can succeed. 

Disclaimer: ** APR has been shown to increase the chances of allowing the pregnancy to continue. However, the outcome of your particular reversal attempt cannot be guaranteed. 

Even if you aren’t sure if reversing the abortion pill is the right decision for you, if you are having any doubts or feelings of regret, we highly recommend you contact the APR hotline as soon as possible, or Life Choice Pregnancy Care Center.
