You Are Not Alone
We know both men and women may be affected by a previous abortion(s). There is no right or wrong way to feel. Every person’s experience is unique. Relief, anger, sadness, and hope can all exist at one time. This may be confusing but it’s also normal. You are not alone!
When considering abortion, speak to a qualified, trusted individual who can help you understand what type of impact this procedure may have on you.
Mental Effects of Abortion
According to this study, the National Institute of Medicine shares that, “some women do have significant mental health issues that are caused, triggered, aggravated, or complicated by their abortion experience.”
The Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic agree some women do experience negative emotions linked to their abortions. Some of these feelings include:
You will likely not feel like your old self right away and you could wonder if you will feel normal again. Everyone’s journey and timeline are different, so it’s important that you don’t give yourself a deadline.
Give yourself time and space to process your experience. Your mind needs time to heal, just like your body did after the procedure.
