Every woman experiences different side effects and recovery periods from medical procedures. Abortion is no different, but the added risk of mental health effects and the decision’s weight can complicate things.
While no one can say with certainty how you’ll feel, we do know abortion can cause various emotional responses. And if you’re struggling to cope after an abortion procedure, Azar House provides no-cost, confidential post-abortion support.
You may have seen or heard women say they felt relief, happiness, or peace after their abortion procedures. But not much is said about those who experience regret or sadness.
A study found that some women do experience adverse mental health effects after abortion, including:
Whether they feel shame, are unsure where to find help, or wonder if other women have had similar experiences, these women deserve hope, healing, and support. Deciding to begin the healing process is a brave step that will help them find peace.
Counseling, spending time with loved ones, participating in hobbies, and more are all excellent ways to deal with emotional aftereffects. But many women desire community and to know that they aren’t the only ones struggling.
