What is the “abortion pill”?
RU-486 (also known as “the abortion pill”) is 2 different kinds of medications (mifepristone and misopristol) taken 24—48 hours apart.
Can it be reversed?
The reversal process is very successful but not guaranteed. Timing is important. This process works by introducing more progesterone into the body to combat the effects of the first pill.
Progesterone is safe during pregnancy, in fact, it’s a hormone your body already makes, and the reversal process simply adds more of it.
The rate of success ranges from 64-68%.
