You are not alone if you regret your decision to take an abortion pill. It can be common for women to feel as if they have made a rushed decision for their pregnancy. You may have felt it was your only option.

If you have changed your mind about recently taking the abortion pill it may not too late to reverse the effects of the chemical abortion.

What Happens When You Take the Abortion Pill

The abortion pill is typically a regimen of two medications, Mifepristone and Misoprostol.

The first drug, Mifepristone, acts by blocking progesterone absorption in the uterus. When the uterus is without this hormone, the uterine lining will thin and begin to lose the ability to keep the pregnancy implanted. 

Typically, 24 to 72 hours after taking the first medication, misoprostol is taken. This drug causes uterine contraction, resulting in the pregnancy being expelled through the vagina. 

Can the Abortion Pill be Reversed?

If you have taken the abortion pill you may be able to reverse the effects.

The process of abortion pill reversal seeks to replenish progesterone in the body, providing support to the pregnancy. Progesterone is effective and has been safely used in pregnancy for decades. 

A 2018 peer-reviewed study showed abortion pill reversal has a 64-68% rate of increasing the chances of allowing the pregnancy to continue. 

If you have changed your mind about recently taking the abortion pill, it is important to start the abortion pill reversal process as soon as possible.
