Have you taken the first medication of the abortion pill and are regretting what you have done? It may not be too late to reverse the effects. Many women have regrets halfway through their abortion and are unsure of who to turn to.
It may be possible for your pregnancy to continue.
What Is the Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill, otherwise known as a medical abortion, consists of two medications: mifepristone and misoprostol. Mifepristone blocks progesterone and prevents the embryo from continuing to be implanted in the uterus. Misoprostol causes uterine contractions and expels both the embryo and pregnancy tissue through the vagina.
Before having a medical abortion, it is important that you understand the side effects and risks associated with the procedure.
Can You Reverse Its Effects?
If you have only taken mifepristone, it may still be possible to reverse the effects of this medication. Ideally, the abortion pill process should be completed within 24 hours but may be effective until 72 hours.
You may be wondering how the reversal process works. It involves releasing a large amount of progesterone into the woman’s body with the goal of counteracting the effects of mifepristone. Progesterone can be safely used and does not cause birth defects.
