Support after your abortion
If you have had an abortion, it is not out of the ordinary to experience emotions and thoughts that are difficult to process.
Perhaps you had a recent abortion and feel alone. Maybe you had an abortion years ago and never shared that experience with anyone. Or, you may not have had access to the choice you wanted or the support you needed.
Women’s experiences with abortion are wide-ranging. Almost all women say they felt relief immediately following the procedure. But for some women, their feelings changed to grief, sadness, and depression.
Post-abortion feelings for some women
Every woman is unique, and so are their reactions to abortion. It’s okay if you feel different from other women you know who have had abortions. Do you have any of these feelings?
- Intense grief or sadness
- A deep sense of loss
- Anger or rage
- Emotional numbness
- Guilt and shame
- Difficulty with relationships
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Lowered self-esteem
