How does it work?
If you have only taken the first pill of a chemical abortion, and it has been less than 24-48 hours, contact Anchor of Hope as soon as possible to discuss your options. There is HOPE!
The procedure for reversing a chemical abortion involves an ultrasound and high doses of natural progesterone, a hormone that your body needs to maintain a pregnancy. It may not be too late to make a second choice. Contact a nurse today to begin the process.
- What if I am bleeding already? Spotting or bleeding is common during the reversal process. If you experience heavy bleeding, cramping, or fever you should seek emergency care. An ultrasound is necessary to confirm you have a live baby in your uterus.
- Does this cause problems for the baby? Doctors have been using Prometrium (progesterone) as common standard practice in people who do in vitro fertilization, or who are prone to miscarriages or preterm births. The American College of OB/GYNs states that mifepristone does not cause birth defects and other studies show that children born after maternal progesterone ingestion are healthy up to 5 years later. Either the hormone progesterone will be successful or it will not be successful.
