Here are some common questions we get asked about Abortion Pill Reversal:
Is it too late to reverse the abortion pill?
Our goal is to start the reversal treatment within the first 24 hours of taking the abortion pill, mifepristone, also known as RU-486. However, we have had many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the abortion pill.
Even if 72 hours have passed, call or text us at 719.544.9312 or after hours call (800)719.HELP. We are here to help. It may not be too late.
The abortion clinic said I have to complete the abortion; is that true?
No, it is your choice to change your mind.
What if I am cramping or spotting? Does it mean it’s too late to reverse the abortion pill?
No, many women have experienced cramping or spotting and have successfully reversed the abortion pill.
Important: If you have not had an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy viability (that your baby is in the uterus), you should have one done right away.
What if I want to reverse the abortion pill but I’ve waited too long? What do I do then?
Please call or text us at 719.544.9312 or after hours call (800)712.HELP. You may still be pregnant. It may not be too late.
What about the other pills the abortion clinic gave me?
The second medication is called misoprostol or Cytotec. Its purpose is to cause the uterus to contract and expel the baby.
If you want to try to reverse the abortion, do not take misoprostol/Cytotec.

Our on call nurse will ask you some basic questions to see if reversal is possible.
The nurse will then connect you with a doctor or medical provider in your area to start treatment, if that is your choice.
What is the treatment to reverse the abortion pill?
An ultrasound will be done as soon as possible to confirm if your baby is still alive.
The doctor or other medical provider will prescribe progesterone, which will be given by injection in the gluteus (“butt”) muscle, by mouth or by vagina.
The treatment will continue through your 1st trimester of pregnancy.
Why is progesterone used?
