Is it Possible to Reverse the Effects of the Abortion Pill?
Yes — if you’ve just started the abortion pill process in the last 72 hours, it may be possible to reverse the effects of the first medication, mifepristone, through the abortion pill reversal process.
In order to understand the abortion pill reversal process, let’s talk about how the abortion pill works in the first place…
What is the Abortion Pill?
Also referred to as a medical abortion, the abortion pill is a two-pill process used to terminate a pregnancy within the first 10 weeks of gestation. This process involves taking two medications — Mifepristone and Misoprostol. Mifepristone is used to prevent the body from absorbing progesterone, the hormone that supports the growth of the pregnancy.
Without progesterone, the pregnancy will be terminated. In order to remove the pregnancy tissue from the uterus, Misoprostol is taken roughly 24-48 hours after the first pill. Misoprostol causes a process of contractions that forces the fetal tissue from the womb.
What is Abortion Pill Reversal?
Many women experience feelings of regret soon after starting the abortion pill process. If you’ve recently taken Mifepristone and are seeking to reverse the effects of the medication, it may not be too late!
An abortion pill reversal involves taking a prescribed amount of progesterone to counteract the effects of Mifepristone. However, in order to reverse the effects of the abortion pill, time is of the essence and it’s important to act quickly.

Is it too late to start an abortion pill reversal?
If you’ve taken Mifepristone within the last 72 hours and have not yet taken Misoprostol, you may still be eligible for the abortion pill reversal process. But time is of the essence, so contacting the helpline immediately is recommended.
Are there any risks associated with an abortion pill reversal?
No! Thankfully, progesterone is safe and proven effective in reversing the effects of the abortion pill. The reversal process has proven effective approximately 65 percent of the time.
