Are you seeking care after having an abortion? Every woman’s experience following an abortion is unique. Some women may feel relief for a moment, some may feel a deep sense of loss, and others may feel nothing at all. Many women, no matter what they feel, find it helpful to talk about their abortion experience. Even if you have never shared your secret with anyone, you do not have to sort out your feelings on your own.
You are not alone and we are here to listen.
What you may be experiencing
If you have had an abortion (or know someone who has), maybe you have noticed changes emotionally or physically. It is common to feel many things all at once: relief, anger, sadness, and hope may all exist at the same time. These feelings may not show up in the weeks and months after an abortion; they may show up years later.
It doesn’t matter if you are 20, 40, or 60+ years old, symptoms are not defined by your age. Working through emotions from the distant past can be overwhelming, confusing, and difficult to process. Know that it is possible to heal.
