I changed my mind after taking the abortion pill. Can I stop the effects?

How does the abortion pill work? 

The abortion pill, also referred to as a medical abortion, is a combination of two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol.  

Mifepristone (first pill): Blocks your body’s natural production of progesterone to end the pregnancy’s growth. Progesterone is a necessary hormone for a pregnancy to survive. 

Misoprostol (second pill): Softens the cervix, causes the uterus to contract, and prepares the body to expel the pregnancy.  

In the abortion pill process, mifepristone is taken first, then misoprostol is taken 24-48 hours after mifepristone. 

How does Progesterone Treatment work? 

Progesterone Treatment replenishes the natural hormone progesterone back into the body. It works to out-compete the first abortion pill, mifepristone (RU-486), which blocks this natural hormone. 

Progesterone is the hormone that sustains and grows the pregnancy. Doctors commonly use Progesterone Treatment in pregnant women to reduce the risk of premature birth and recurrent miscarriages.    

The sooner you begin Progesterone Treatment, the more likely it will work successfully. You can only start treatment if you have not yet taken the second pill, misoprostol.

How effective and safe is Progesterone Treatment? 

Progesterone Treatment has a success rate of 64% to 68%.  

If you change your mind after taking mifepristone, there is a chance this treatment can reverse the effects of it, if taken in time. 

Is Progesterone Treatment safe? Will it cause birth defects? 

 Natural progesterone has been used safely to support healthy pregnancies for over 50 years. 

Studies show no greater chance of birth defects with progesterone or mifepristone. 

When to start Progesterone Treatment? 

As soon as possible. You should start treatment within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill. However, patients who began treatment within 72 hours of taking mifepristone have also experienced successful reversals.
