What about birth defects? Is my baby going to be OK?

Birth abnormalities are not linked to progesterone or the common abortion pill.

No evidence exists to date of a teratogenic effect, the American Academy of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said in Practice Bulletin on forty three, March twenty fourteen reaffirmed twenty sixteen. It appears that the abortion pill does not lead to birth abnormalities, in other words.

Since more than 50 years ago, progesterone has been used safely throughout pregnancy as part of the reversal process. According to preliminary research, the prevalence of birth defects in children born after the APR is either lower or equivalent to that of the general population.

A 1999 FDA investigation found no evidence of an elevated risk of birth abnormalities in progesterone-using pregnant women. The Pope Paul VI Institute has supported progesterone throughout pregnancy for more than 25 years.
