If you are struggling with feelings of guilt, shame, sadness, or loss after experiencing an abortion, you are not alone. Many women struggle with these feelings after an abortion. 

You deserve to find hope and healing after your abortion.

Reach Out

Experiencing post-abortion emotional struggles can be isolating. You may feel like you can’t share your feelings with anyone because they won’t understand, or maybe you worry about being judged. The shame and fear that keep women from sharing their feelings with their partners, family, or friends further a woman’s risk of developing post-abortion mental health struggles. 

Talk with a supportive friend or family member you trust. Don’t struggle with your feelings alone.

Find Professional Help

A professional counselor can assist you as you process your post-abortion feelings. Ask for referrals to counselors from people you trust. 

Don’t be surprised if it takes a few visits before you find the counselor who is the right fit for you; you don’t have to stick with the first counselor you try. Seek a counselor who makes you feel comfortable and is confident they can help you overcome the challenges you are experiencing.

Support Groups

It is common for women to struggle with their mental health after an abortion. Some women may struggle immediately after their abortion, while others may not have any difficulty for months or even years before challenges arise. Though every woman will experience this pain in her own unique way, women struggling with post-abortion stress can help each other find healing through support and community. 

Find Hope

If you are struggling with your mental health after an abortion, find the hope and support you need so you can overcome these challenges. To learn more about the mental health effects of abortion, please contact the Southern Ohio Pregnancy Center.
