Abortion is life-changing and sometimes women experience unsettling feelings and difficult emotions after they’ve had an abortion. This sometimes comes right away, or can be uncovered years afterward.
Indicators of Post-Abortion Emotional Difficulty
It can sometimes be difficult to find the time and space to process through your emotions. The questions below can help you to gauge how you may be handling your past abortion.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be experiencing pain from your abortion and need help. 1 in 4 women in the United States will have an abortion at some point in their life. Despite abortion being openly discussed in many areas of life today, there are still women who have pain and experiences that they don’t feel comfortable telling anyone. If you or someone you know is seeking support, don’t let confusion, fear or shame keep you from seeking help. Whether the abortion decision was yours, your partner’s or you were otherwise involved, recovery resources are available with compassionate, non-judgmental support.
Post-abortion healthcare programs allow women who have experienced an abortion to connect with advocates who can help them navigate their emotions and find freedom from the burden they carry. Women can find peace and healing. If you have an abortion in your past or know someone who has, please know you are not alone. Schedule an appointment today.
