How Does The Abortion Pill Work?
The abortion pill is also known as medication abortion or medical abortion. It uses two drugs over a 24 to 48-hour period to terminate a pregnancy. The FDA has approved the abortion pill method up to 70 days from the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period. In other words, the gestational age should be 70 days (10 weeks) or less.
The first pill in this method is called Mifeprex. This drug blocks the uterus from absorbing a hormone called progesterone. For your pregnancy to continue, you need progesterone. The pregnancy ends without progesterone.
Misoprostol is the second drug. It causes cramping and bleeding as the body works to expel the pregnancy.
What Is Abortion Pill Reversal?
After taking the first drug, Mifeprex, in the abortion pill method, some women regret starting their abortion. They want to stop their medical abortion.
Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) is a process to give the pregnancy a second chance. To reverse the effects of Mifeprex, women take high doses of progesterone. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), APR has a reversal rate of 64 to 68%. If the second drug, misoprostol, is already taken, the reversal won’t work.
Time is crucial. The quicker the progesterone is administered, the better chance the pregnancy has of progressing.
