Most Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the abortion pill take to work?
When taking the abortion pill, there are two medications that are taken in two separate doses:
•  Mifepristone – this is used to block the body’s natural “pregnancy hormone” (as it is often referred) called progesterone which helps your pregnancy progress and continue to grow. This is taken first and is usually taken at the location of the abortion provider.
•  Misoprostol – induces cramping and contractions to empty the uterus. This second pill is taken up to 48 hours after taking mifepristone to complete the abortion process.

What happens if you just take the first abortion pill?
If you have started the chemical abortion by taking mifepristone and decide that you don’t want to take the second pill, you may still be able to take the reversal pill and stop the abortion.

How long does the abortion pill reversal take to work?The Abortion Pill Reversal should begin within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone or RU486. And according to Abortion Pill Rescue Network, there have been successful reversals when treatment begins within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill.

What can I expect the process to look like?
“An ultrasound will be done as soon as possible to confirm heart rate, placement, and dating of the pregnancy. 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… By giving extra progesterone, we hope to outnumber and outcompete the first abortion pill in order to reverse the effects.” (Abortion Pill Rescue Network, Frequently Asked Questions)
