Abortion Pill Regrets

It May Not Be Too Late.

If you are questioning your abortion decision, you are not alone. We’re here to help. Some women who have taken the abortion pill experience regret. There is a procedure which is a medical procedure available to reverse the effects of the first abortion pill by interrupting the process. At the Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic, we offer the procedure at no cost to you.

Understanding The Abortion Pill Or Medical Abortion

The abortion pill is actually 2 pills. The first pill blocks progesterone – a hormone needed for developing a healthy baby. The second pill is usually taken 36-72 hours later, expels the embryo.

Understanding Reversing the Abortion Pill

If you have taken the first abortion pill, which blocks progesterone, taking the reversal pill will increase progesterone, a natural hormone in a woman’s body that is necessary to nurture and sustain a pregnancy. The reversal is most effective if taken within 24 – 48 hours after ingesting the first pill.  However, there have been many successful outcomes up to 72 hours after taking the first pill.

If you are interested in starting the reversal procedure, please call our hotline today at 877-558-0333

If you have taken a home pregnancy test, you may want to confirm results with a laboratory-quality test at our center or mobile clinic. Our tests detect HCg levels within 7 to 10 after conception.

While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend making an appointment to ensure you receive timely service. You can easily schedule an appointment online or call us at our San Clemente or Niguel mobile clinic.

You’ll be welcomed by our receptionist who will introduce you to your client advocate.  She will listen to you judgment-free and provide you with information followed by a pregnancy test.  Should your test be positive, one of our caring medical professionals will conduct a limited ultrasound to confirm if you have a viable pregnancy and date fetal age. 

Absolutely! You can bring your boyfriend, family member, or friend. We will first meet with you for the initial intake. Then, provided you have given us consent to have them in the room, your guest will be able to join you.

We adhere to a strict privacy and confidentiality policy.

Our professional, medical-grade lab quality pregnancy test can determine pregnancy on the first day after your first missed period. We recommend you make an appointment if you have missed a period, have any pregnancy related questions, or think you might be pregnant.

On-site ultrasounds are available after an initial intake with one of our client advocates.  Our limited ultrasound exams are performed by a licensed nurse sonographer or RDMS (registered sonographer) and reviewed by a licensed physician.  An ultrasound confirms a viable pregnancy and determines how far along you are.  To qualify for a limited ultrasound, you’ll need to be a minimum of 6 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period.

You can still meet with a member of our staff to discuss your concerns and review available options.  An ultrasound is recommended to know if your pregnancy is viable and in your uterus, since 20% – 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage.  Additionally, the ultrasound will show how far along you are to determine what type of abortion you would choose.  We can provide a limited ultrasound at no cost to you.

No, it is always your choice to change your mind. Even if you have started the chemical abortion process, reversal may still be a choice for you.

The second medication’s purpose is to cause the uterus to contract and expel the baby. You should not take the second pill if you want to try to reverse the chemical abortion.

APR has a 64-68% success rate. Without the APR treatment, mifepristone may fail to abort the pregnancy on its own. In other words, your pregnancy may continue even without APR if you decide not to take misoprostol, the second abortion drug likely prescribed or provided to you when you took mifepristone. APR has been shown to increase the chances of allowing the pregnancy to continue. However, the outcome of your particular reversal attempt cannot be guaranteed.

Progesterone may cause sleepiness, lack of energy, light-headedness, dizziness, gastrointestinal discomfort and headaches. Increased fluid intake might help relieve these symptoms.
