Have you ever made a decision that you instantly regretted or wished you could reverse?
You made the decision, and, just like that, the course of your life is irreversibly altered. Life rarely provides us with do-overs. Second chances are elusive. Regrets take captive our thoughts, and our minds become cluttered with countless “could haves,” “should haves,” and “what ifs.” Usually, the decisions we make are not just isolated choices. They chart the course for the rest of our lives.
But what if you can get a second chance? What if there is a do-over? What if you can reverse a decision you have made? When faced with an unintended pregnancy, all women face the same three decisions. They can parent, make a parenting plan through adoption, or have an abortion. Abortion is an irreversible decision. But what if it isn’t? Abortion Pill Reversal offers an opportunity to reverse an abortion and enable you to stop your abortion.
Medical abortion is one of the means available to women who want to end a pregnancy. The procedure is sometimes referred to as the “abortion pill.” In actuality, a medical abortion requires a series of pills. The first step involves taking a drug, mifepristone, that blocks the hormone progesterone. Without this naturally occurring hormone, the fetus cannot survive. The second phase of the process involves taking a second medication, misoprostol, at home 6-48 hours later. During this time, cramping and bleeding begin to empty the uterus.
Between these two steps, you have a second chance – a window of opportunity. In this space, there is the possibility for a do-over and stop your abortion. If you have taken the first abortion pill, but haven’t taken the second drug in the protocol, you can potentially reverse the abortion.
If you have begun the medical abortion process and regret the decision, timing is critical. It is optimal to start the reversal within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill.
The bottom line: Having a medical abortion is a significant decision with possible emotional and medical consequences attached to it. Before deciding to have an abortion, be informed about what it involves, possible side effects, and complications, and what other alternatives are available to you.
If you have begun the process to end your pregnancy, are within 24 hours of having taken the abortion pill, and wish you could undo your decision, call the Abortion Pill Rescue hotline at 877.558.0333. They are available 24/7 to connect you with a doctor or medical provider in your area to start the reversal process.
