Perhaps you went through with an abortion, a decision that you thought would solve the dilemma you were in, but now it is behind you and things aren’t quite feeling fixed.

You are not alone in this.

After women get an abortion, many experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. For many women, however, the crisis isn’t over. Months and even years later after the abortion clinic visit, significant problems develop. There is evidence that abortion is associated with decrease in long-term emotional and physical health.

Women who have experienced abortion may develop the following:

  • Guilt
  • Grief
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Difficulty bonding with partner or children
  • Eating disorders
