Post Abortion

Already had an abortion?

Struggling emotionally with your decision? There is evidence that abortion is associated with a decrease in emotional health. For some women these negative emotions may be very strong, and can appear within days or after many years. This psychological response is a form of post-traumatic stress disorder. Some of the symptoms are: 1

  • Eating disorders
  • Guilt
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Relationship problems
  • Depression
  • Flashbacks of abortion
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
