Emotional and Psychological Impact
Following an abortion, many women experience initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. For some women, however, the crisis is not over. Months and even years later, significant problems can develop.
Women who have experienced an abortion may develop the following symptoms:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Difficulty Bonding with Partner or Children
- Eating Disorders
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, we can provide referrals to a counselor in the area who can help you or someone you know work through your feelings. You are not alone.
Deciding to seek help may be one of the toughest decisions you have to make, but it may be one of the best.
To talk to someone about issues from a past abortion, please call us. All calls are confidential.
