What if I change my mind?

If you feel like you need more time to come to your decision, please tell us. If you feel that speaking to a trained counsellor could help you to feel more confident in your decision, we can arrange this for you.

If you start to feel unsure about having an abortion after your consultation, please don’t worry. You can change your mind right up to the point where treatment begins. If you do change your mind about having an abortion just let us know so we can cancel your appointment.

If you change your mind after taking the first medical abortion tablet (Mifepristone) and decide to continue the pregnancy please inform us as soon as possible. This is because although Mifepristone is not known to cause birth anomalies, there may be an increased risk of miscarriage later in the pregnancy. We encourage you to also inform your GP and Midwife

There are no clinical guidelines that recommend any medications to reverse a medical abortion.
