You Are Not Alone
If you, your partner, or someone you know has experienced an abortion, we are here to care for you. You don’t have to figure out the next steps all on your own.
Women respond differently to their abortion experiences. Many women feel relief right after, but for some women, grief, and despair come over them days, months, or even years later. We can help.
Side Effects of Abortion
Your emotions are valid. Give yourself lots of grace during this time and let yourself feel emotions that maybe you’ve been suppressing. A study revealed that women who have an abortion face an increased risk for mental health problems, including substance abuse, anxiety, and depression.
Maybe you felt relief after the abortion but then later had feelings of regret, loss, grief, sadness, and anger. Other common emotional side effects of abortion include:
- Emotional pain
- Anger or rage
- Suicidal impulses
- Self-destructive behavior
Healing is possible. If you’ve had an abortion and you’re beginning to feel the emotion of it all, we want you to know we’re here for you. Many women experience different emotions after terminating a pregnancy so don’t feel you’re alone during this time.
