Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) is a medical process designed to reverse the effects of the abortion pill in an attempt to continue the pregnancy successfully before the abortion is completed.
APR can only occur after the first dose of medical abortion (mifepristone) is taken orally. It is ineffective after the second set of pills (misoprostol).
How Abortion Pill Reversal Works
Mifepristone (the first abortion pill) prevents a woman’s womb from absorbing progesterone, which the baby needs to survive. APR floods the body with a large influx of progesterone in an effort to out-compete the mifepristone.
Progesterone has been used to support pregnancies for nearly six decades and has no known health risks or side effects other than those normally associated with pregnancy. Progesterone has successfully been used to help women reverse the effects of mifepristone for years.
When should I begin the APR process?
You need to start the process within 24 hours of taking mifepristone. According to Abortion Pill Rescue Network, there have been successful reversals when treatment was starting within a few days of taking the pill.
