Abortion Pill Reversal
What is Abortion Pill Reversal?
The abortion clinic may have told you that you must take the second set of pills and complete the abortion, but this is not true. If you would like to continue your pregnancy, you should NOT take the second set of abortion pills.
The sooner you start the abortion pill reversal medication, the higher the likelihood of success.
*Studies show a success rate of 64-68% if the medication is taken within 72 hours of the first abortion pill. (Delgado and Davenport, 2012)
An ultrasound will be performed as soon as possible to confirm heart rate, location, and dating of the pregnancy.
Progesterone capsules will be prescribed to be taken through the end of the first trimester.

What if I am cramping or spotting? Does that mean it’s too late to reverse the abortion pill?
Spotting or bleeding is common during reversal treatment. It is important to continue the progesterone even if you experience spotting or bleeding, unless directed otherwise. If you have heavy bleeding, faintness, severe abdominal pain, or fever, seek emergency medical care immediately. It is important to have an ultrasound to confirm your baby is in the uterus as soon as possible.
Will my baby have any birth defects because of the abortion pill?
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in its Practice Bulletin Number 143, March 2014 states, “No evidence exists to date of a teratogenic effect of mifepristone.” In other words, it does not appear that mifepristone (the first abortion pill) causes birth defects. Progesterone has been safely used in pregnancy for over 50 years. Initial studies have found the birth defect rate in babies born after the Abortion Pill Reversal is less than or equal to the rate in the general population. Neither mifepristone nor progesterone is associated with birth defects.
