Are you struggling to live a normal life after your abortion experience? Maybe you find it difficult to continue with the overwhelming trauma.

Every woman reacts differently to an abortion. While women may find relief in the moment, many women experience emotional turmoil months or even years later. Research has shown that women may experience emotional struggles, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Feelings of loss
  • Substance use disorder
  • Suicidal ideation

The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons found that nearly 75% of women who had an abortion felt pressured into making an abortion decision. If you’re wrestling with these post-abortion emotions, hope and healing are possible.

You are not alone in your struggle. We at Nest Pregnancy Care Center are here to offer group support and counseling referrals. There is a better way forward, and we can help you begin the journey to healing.

Acknowledge Your Emotions

Abortion is often a traumatic experience, and the rollercoaster of emotions that come with it is real. To heal, you must acknowledge your feelings and work through them with someone you trust. Suppressing your emotions will only delay your recovery journey. 

Common emotions women feel after an abortion include:

  • Sadness or Sorrow
  • Feeling of Loss
  • Isolation
  • Regret or Guilt
  • Emotional Pain
  • Nightmares
  • Anger or Rage
  • Suicidal Impulses
  • Self-Destructive Behavior
