How does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?

When you are pregnant, your body produces progesterone to nourish your pregnancy. When you take the first abortion pill, it starts the abortion process by blocking progesterone to terminate your pregnancy. The Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) process replenishes progesterone. This acts as an antidote to reversing the effects of the first pill so your pregnancy can continue. APR is most effective if started within 24-72 hours of taking the first pill and if the second pill has not yet been taken.

Many women report successful pregnancies after abortion pill reversal treatment. Statistically, 64-68% of pregnancies proceed to term after women start the APR process. The sooner you start treatment, the higher the possibility of successfully continuing your pregnancy.

Is Progesterone Safe?

Yes. The progesterone used in APR treatment is the same as FDA-approved progesterone used by physicians during pregnancy for nearly fifty years. Research also reveals that taking progesterone after taking the abortion pill has not been shown to increase birth defects.

I’ve Changed My Mind, What’s My Next Step?

If you’ve changed your mind after taking the first abortion pill, or even if you’re just unsure about continuing the process, your first step is to not take the second drug. Even if the clinic that provided you with the pills told you that you must take the second pill, do not take them. The second pill induces bleeding and cramping, causing your body to expel the pregnancy. Your next step is to contact Waterleaf or the Abortion Pill Rescue hotline right away. They will help you at no cost, providing information about the pills, the reversal process, and your options.
