Can I Change My Mind After Taking the First Abortion Pill?

Updated: Mar 21

You have a right to change your mind about so many things. You might be asking, “What about my abortion?” Can I change my mind if I’ve taken the first abortion pill and no longer want to go through with an abortion?” The answer might be yes.

Medication for reversing an abortion
IT'S STILL YOUR CHOICE

It may be possible to continue your pregnancy if only the first portion of the abortion pill has been taken. There is an Abortion Pill Reversal Helpline available for women like you who decide they want to continue their pregnancy. If you are seeking to reverse your abortion, call the 24/7 helpline at 1-877-558-0333 OR use the chat option on their website: https://www.abortionpillreversal.com/. They are ready to help you with the next steps and answer questions you may have.


You may have more questions, so here is some more research on abortion pill reversal...


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The first pill for chemical abortion, mifepristone, blocks the effects of progesterone, a hormone necessary for a pregnancy to thrive. When you call the helpline, you talk to a nurse who will put you in touch with a physician who can prescribe Progesterone to reverse the effect of the abortion pill. A physician by the name of Dr. George Delgado started using progesterone for abortion reversal in 2012. Today there is a network of over 1400 providers, pregnancy centers and hospitals working with the Abortion Pill Rescue Network. Their website says they can’t guarantee success, but they have seen a 64-68% success rate.


HOW SOON DO I NEED TO TAKE PROGESTERONE AFTER TAKING THE FIRST PILL?

The sooner you call, the better. The best success to reversing abortion is to start the progesterone 24 hours after taking the abortion pill, but they have seen success with treatment in the first 72 hours.


IS PROGESTERONE SAFE?

Progesterone is a hormone that a woman produces naturally. Some physicians prescribe it to pregnant women to help prevent miscarriage. It is considered safe and it is unlikely to cause any birth defects for the baby.


IS THIS TREATMENT CONTROVERSIAL?

It seems like everything concerning reproduction and abortion is controversial and Abortion Pill Reversal is no different. Some doctors want to prescribe progesterone to women seeking help with reversal, and they consider it a safe solution for their patients. However, other doctors say abortion pill reversal isn’t backed by science. Yet, Heartbeat International says they have helped over 4,500 women with abortion pill reversal. There are some states who mandate that women are told about the reversal when they are prescribed abortion pills, while other states are banning reversal attempts.

BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU WANT?
