How Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?

When you take the first abortion drug, mifepristone, it works by blocking progesterone. Progesterone is an essential hormone that’s needed to sustain a pregnancy. Without it, the lining of the uterus thins, and the pregnancy ends. 

Abortion pill reversal works by flooding your body with progesterone in an attempt to counteract the effects of mifepristone. However, it’s critical to know that this process can only be done after taking mifepristone—and the sooner you start, the better.

Abortion pill reversal is not an option if you’ve already taken the second abortion drug, misoprostol. 

How Safe and Effective Is Abortion Pill Reversal?

The progesterone used in abortion pill reversal has been safely utilized during pregnancy for the past 50 years. Studies show that when taken within 72 hours of mifepristone, abortion pill reversal has a 64-68% success rate
