Abortion Pill Reversal
Even if you’ve already taken the abortion pill, it might not be too late to reverse the effects of a chemical abortion.
The abortion pill reversal strategy has been in place for almost 10 years and the network has grown to more than 600 physicians around the country who volunteer to assist women who’ve changed their minds after an initial decision to have a chemical abortion.
So how does it work?
Mifepristone works by blocking the receptor sites for progesterone – a naturally occurring hormone that typically rises rapidly in early pregnancy and is critical for the sustenance of a developing fetus in the first trimester. The antidote, therefore, is to provide enough additional progesterone to the mother to overwhelm the abortion pill and keep it from successfully blocking the hormonal support necessary for the baby.
