This is a big decision. It’s ok to change your mind. Even if the abortion clinic advises you that you must continue with the abortion pill schedule of treatments, remember it is always your choice to change your mind. Even if you have started the chemical abortion process, reversal may still be a choice for you. Here’s what you should know:
Reversing The Abortion Pill
We’re here to support you. If you have taken the first dose abortion pill and have changed your mind, call or text us right away, time is of the essence. (614-444-4411)
You may be able to reverse it in the first 72 hours. The reversal is sometimes possible after you have taken the first dose of the abortion pill.
How does the reversal work? According to abortionpillreversal.com – “The doctor or another medical provider will prescribe progesterone, given as a pill to be taken orally or vaginally or possibly by intramuscular injection. The treatment will usually continue through the first trimester of pregnancy.”
Considering the abortion pill? Here’s the information you need to know first:
The abortion pill is available up to 70 days from the first day of your last period. After your initial consultation, there should be a 24 hour waiting period before taking the abortion pill or having a surgical abortion. The abortion pill is not a guarantee that a surgical abortion will not be needed. If the abortion pill is unsuccessful, it may require a follow-up surgical abortion procedure. This method of abortion is a 3 step process.
You will visit the abortion clinic and you will be given a dose of medication called Mifeprex. This medication drops the level of progesterone in your body and causes the lining of your uterus to break down.
The abortion clinic will send you home with a different medication to be taken 24-48 hours later. This medication is called Misoprostol and makes your uterus contract in order to push everything from your body. You may pass large clots and fetal tissue and in some cases your symptoms can be severe. You should expect to experience lower abdominal cramping pain, vaginal bleeding, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
It is recommended that within two weeks you visit the clinic or you ob/gyn to be sure the process is complete. You should have an ultrasound and blood work done at that time. If the abortion is incomplete, not having a follow up visit can lead to serious complications.
