Have you had an abortion, or are you considering one?

As with any medical procedure, there are risks. Studies show that abortion can affect at least some women’s mental health.

If you had an abortion and are struggling, you are not alone.

Are Some Women More at Risk Emotionally?

Some women are more at risk emotionally than others.

Risk factors include:

  • Feeling pressured into an abortion
  • Having maternal desires
  • Having conflicting moral beliefs
  • Having a history of mental health issues

How Can Women Recover?

If you are struggling after an abortion decision, there are steps you can take. Consider one of the following options:

  1. Open up to close friends and family about your feelings. Don’t carry this alone!
  2. If you prefer to keep your situation private, consider professional help. Qualified counselors or therapists are available in your area or online.
  3. Many local churches offer programs for women who are struggling.
  4. Take care of yourself emotionally and physically. Eat a healthy diet, exercise, and pursue hobbies that help you relax.
  5. Write in a journal to express your feelings.

If you are having severe struggles and are considering suicide, find help immediately. Call 988 for the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.
