What Do I Need to Know About This Process?
Mifepristone is the first drug in the abortion pill regimen, another name for medical abortion. It works by blocking progesterone, which sustains a pregnancy, and misoprostol ends the process by causing uterine contractions and expelling the pregnancy tissue from the uterus.
Some providers believe that giving progesterone either orally, vaginally, or by injection can counteract the effects of mifepristone and save the pregnancy. A study showed that this protocol was successful in 64% of cases, but that rate decreases the longer it takes to begin the reversal process.
The abortion pill reversal process is believed to be safe, and it can be effective for many women if taken correctly. Progesterone has been safely used to support pregnancies for over 50 years. What’s more, the rate of birth defects in pregnancies treated with progesterone matches that of the general population, meaning there does not appear to be a risk of complications.
It is important to note that severe bleeding can occur when mifepristone is taken but not misoprostol in the abortion pill regimen. This possibility is supported by a 2020 study that found multiple participants requiring hospital care following this issue, with one receiving progesterone and the remaining two receiving a placebo. It is crucial to know that this can be a risk.
