The abortion pill is actually two drugs that are taken hours to days apart.

There are documented cases in which the abortion process has been reversed within the first few hours or days after taking the first drug.

How Does the Abortion Pill Work?

A drug called mifepristone is taken first. It blocks the hormone progesterone. Progesterone is an essential hormone that allows the embryo to attach itself to the uterine lining and grow.

Next, misoprostol is taken. Its purpose is to cause contractions, which will expel the pregnancy and related tissue from the uterus.

At What Stage Can an Abortion Be Reversed?

Since mifepristone blocks progesterone in a woman’s body, it was discovered that giving a high dose of progesterone within hours of taking the pill can reverse the effects, enabling the pregnancy to continue. 

However, abortion pill reversal must take place after mifepristone and before misoprostol. 

Will There Be Side Effects With This Procedure?

Progesterone is a natural hormone, and injections of it to restore the body to its proper levels are considered to be low risk. There also seems to be no apparent increased risk of birth defects
