do you have questions?

we have answers.

is it true I have to complete the abortion?
It is not true. The abortion clinic may have told you that you have to complete the abortion, however you have the right to know more. You have the choice to change your mind and talk to our nurse to learn more about the abortion pill reversal. Three states require abortion providers to inform you of this option but North Carolina and South Carolina have the Right to Know More legislation.
what is the treatment to reverse the abortion pill?
An ultrasound will be administered as soon as possible to confirm the viability of your pregnancy. Our Charlotte area medical providers will begin the abortion pill reversal protocol by prescribing progesterone. The prescribed treatment will continue through the first trimester of your pregnancy at no cost to you.
what is the success rate of an abortion pill reversal?
Sixty-Eight percent (68%) of women who choose a reversal and reached physicians within 72 hours of taking RU-486 delivered a healthy baby according to the most recent medical study. These women were prescribed oral doses of progesterone during the first trimester.
what about birth defects?
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in its Practice Bulletin Number 143, March 2014, states that:  “No evidence exists to date of a teratogenic effect of mifepristone.”  In other words, it does not appear that mifepristone, RU-486, causes birth defects. The May 2018 APR study backed this finding. Progesterone has been safely used in pregnancy for over 40 years and no record of birth defects caused by progesterone are documented. The progesterone used for abortion pill reversal treatment is the same as the progesterone made in the woman’s body, sometimes called natural or bioidentical progesterone.
are the abortion pill & the morning after pill the same thing?
They are different. The morning after pill is marketed as emergency contraception. It can be taken 72 hours after sexual intercourse and prevents implantation of the human embryo into the lining of the uterus. The abortion pill, mifepristone, is taken up to 7 to 10 weeks into pregnancy with the intention of causing an abortion by blocking progesterone receptors. The morning after pill, Ella, blocks progesterone receptors similarly to mifepristone. It is approved by the FDA for use up to 5 days after intercourse and also has abortifacient effects.
what if I am allergic to peanuts?
You need to inform the medical professional of your allergy. If you are allergic to peanuts, you should NOT take Prometrium capsules or generic progesterone capsules in peanut oil.

how does the abortion pill work?

If a woman in North Carolina is considering a medical abortion, the physician will perform a physical examination and ultrasound to determine eligibility. One will not be eligible for a medical abortion if an ectopic pregnancy or ovarian mass is detected, IUD usage, prescribed cortocosteroids or blood thinners, or with diagnosis of adrenal failure, anemia, bleeding disorders, asthma, liver or kidney problems, heart disease or high blood pressure. The physician may prescribe antibiotics to prevent infections. At the time of the appointment, the woman will be given an oral dose of Mifepristone. Misoprostol tablets will be prescribed to be taken orally or vaginally about 36 to 72 hours after taking the Mifepristone. Misoprostol will cause contractions and expel the baby, which may take a few hours or a few days to complete. The physician will request a follow-up appointment about two weeks after the initial office visit, to ensure the abortion was complete and there were no complications. A medical abortion is unsuccessful approximately 8 – 10% of the time, and may require an additional surgical abortion to complete the termination.

what is the treatment?

A local nurse will perform an ultrasound to confirm the baby is still alive.  An oral progesterone prescription will be given at the initial appointment, and treatment will be monitored for the first trimester. Mifepristone blocks progesterone’s actions by binding progesterone receptors, a natural hormone in a woman’s body necessary for pregnancy, in the uterus and placenta. By giving extra progesterone, the treatment hopes to compete with the mifepristone to reverse the effects of the abortion pill. There is no cost to you for the office visit or prescription. These costs have been provided by community support of our centers.
