REVERSAL OF THE ABORTION PILL (Medical Abortion)
Have you taken the first dose of mifepristone pills for a medical abortion and now you have changed your mind? It may not be too late. The process CAN be reversed. The HOTLINE number is (877) 558-0333.
HOW THE ABORTION PILL WORKS
At the first doctor visit you are given three Mifepristone pills, which contain a drug that blocks the effects of progesterone, cutting off the supply of blood and nutrients to the developing embryo.
Two to four days later you would return to see the doctor again to take another drug, misoprostol, which causes the uterus to contract and expel the embryo. This process may take a few hours or as long as a few days. You may also be given antibiotics.
Two weeks later you would make a third visit to the doctor to confirm that the abortion is complete and check for complications.
HOW THE REVERSAL TREATMENT WORKS
After the mifepristone pills have been taken, but before taking the misoprostol, an ultrasound is done as soon as possible to confirm if your baby is still alive. The doctor or other medical provider will prescribe progesterone, which will be given by injection in the gluteus (“butt”) muscle, by mouth, or by vagina. By giving extra progesterone the hope is to outnumber and outcompete the mifepristone in order to reverse its effects. The treatment continues through your 1st trimester of pregnancy.
The success rate of the abortion pill reversal is about 55%. If a loss occurs it is usually within the first two weeks of treatment.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists states: “No evidence exists to date of a teratogenic effect of mifepristone”. In other words, it does not appear that mifepristone (RU-486) causes birth defects, and the progesterone used in the treatment is the same as the progesterone made in a woman’s body.
