Some women panic when faced with an unexpected pregnancy. They grab the first thought or action that comes to mind. Other women are pressured by someone else to make a quick decision.
Discovering an unexpected pregnancy is frightening. If you chose the abortion pill and have now changed your mind, there’s still a chance to save your pregnancy.
What Is The Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill method is a medical or medication abortion because it uses two drugs to end a pregnancy.
Every pregnancy needs a hormone known as progesterone to grow and thrive. The first drug, mifepristone, in the abortion pill method blocks the absorption of progesterone, so the pregnancy can no longer survive.
The second drug, misoprostol, causes contractions to expel the pregnancy from the body.
What Is Abortion Pill Reversal (APR)?
Because the first drug of the abortion pill method blocks progesterone, abortion pill reversal floods the body with progesterone. The key to reversing the effects of the first drug is starting the reversal process as soon as possible.
Is APR Safe?
Progesterone is a natural hormone that doctors have used to treat women for decades. Medical experts say the Abortion Pill Reversal process saves 64 – 68% of pregnancies. They cannot, however, predict the outcome of your particular pregnancy.
How Do I Begin Abortion Pill Reversal?
Your chances of successfully reversing the effects of the first abortion pill drug are best if you start treatment within 24-72 hours. If you have taken the first abortion pill drug, mifepristone, you begin reversal BEFORE taking the second drug, misoprostol.
