Does Abortion Pill Reversal Exist?

In short, the answer is yes! Abortion pill reversal does exist. Some abortion proponents may speak out against the effectiveness of the abortion pill reversal or insist that women who take the first abortion pill must go through with taking the second, even if they have regrets or want to try and reverse the effects of the pill. We’re here to shed light on this option for women.

Does Abortion Pill Reversal Work?

The first abortion pill, mifepristone, halt the delivery of essential progesterone to the baby, therefore halting his or her growth. The antidote to halting progesterone, then, is the reintroduction of progesterone into the body. Abortion pill reversal is essentially a prescription for progesterone. So far, abortion pill reversal is nearly 68% effective in saving the life of a baby, resulting in a term healthy birth.

Is it Safe?

To date, abortion pill reversal does not have unwelcome or dangerous side effects for the women who take it. There is also no evidence that this course of treatment causes birth defects or abnormalities. In fact, for women who regret taking the first abortion pill, this method of treatment is far better and more effective than just ‘waiting and seeing.’

What Else Should I Know About Abortion Pill Reversal?

There is an abortion pill reversal network at This network provides a 24/7 hotline for those looking to reverse the effects of mifepristone or looking for other pregnancy help. The hotline volunteers connect women with a proper medical professional in their area who can provide a prescription for progesterone, and walk with them through the process and through the rest of their pregnancy.
