Post Abortion Recovery

After an abortion, most women feel a sense of relief, with that sense of relief being different from one woman to another. However, some women report more significant feelings, such as depression, throughout the decision-making process and after the abortion. It is important to talk with someone about these feelings. You are not alone. We offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment

Abortion Side-Effects

Abortion may have physical side-effects, but more common may be the emotional and psychological side-effects.  These side-effects may include:

  • Regret
  • Anger
  • guilty feelings
  • Shame
  • Sense of loneliness or isolation
  • Loss of confidence
  • Insomnia or nightmares
  • Relationship issues
  • Suicidal thoughts or feelings
  • Eating disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
 Each woman’s reaction to an abortion is different, with some reporting that it affected them more than they expected.  If you are experiencing any of these feelings, it is important for you to talk with someone.
