Can I really reverse the effects of the abortion pill?

Yes, but you must act quickly. The abortion pill reversal (APR) process consists of increased progesterone intended to counteract the effects of the abortion pill.

Reversal is most effective (64-68%) if you begin within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill (mifepristone or RU-486). However, many successful reversals have been performed when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill. 1

An ultrasound tech will perform an ultrasound to check for various things like fetal heart rate, placement and how far along you are.


Your doctor will prescribe bioidentical progesterone to be taken as a pill either orally or vaginally. This will likely continue for the remainder of your first trimester. Progesterone is the natural hormone in your body that is necessary to nurture and sustain your pregnancy.

According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, bioidentical progesterone has been used to support healthy pregnancies since the 1950s, receiving FDA approval in 1998. Today, progesterone treatment is commonly used to reduce the risk of premature birth and recurring miscarriage. Additionally, progesterone supplementation is part of the management of IVF pregnancies after embryo transfer and has an extensive safety record.

What are the side effects of abortion pill reversal?

Since progesterone is a naturally occurring hormone, side effects are minimal and similar to those commonly experienced by women during pregnancy.

If I complete the abortion pill reversal (APR) process, will my baby have birth defects?

Progesterone has not been linked to birth defects in children born after a successful abortion pill reversal. Dr. Bill Lile, OB-GYN confirms this in an interview with Focus of the Family. Mifepristone attacks the pregnancy, NOT the baby. Therefore, introducing progesterone simply combats the effects of the mifepristone. In other words, replacing progesterone helps your body recognize your pregnancy and work to sustain it.
