After an abortion, there is hope.
Everyone is distinct, and each person's abortion experience is unique. Some people experience feelings right afterwards, while others may not feel them for months or even years. Others may have no sensations at all.
You could feel relief, humiliation, regret, denial, numbness, rage, anxiety, grief, and melancholy after an abortion. Your feelings are personal to you, and you have the right to express them in relation to your abortion. You don't have to keep them hidden or be hesitant to share them.
Abortion Can Affect Everyone, Including Family, Friends, and Loved Ones
Many of the emotions listed here, as well as helplessness, regret, and blame, may be experienced by family members, partners, husbands, and friends who have been affected by another person's abortion decision. Your feelings about another person's abortion are valid and relevant.
Many people find it useful to talk about their abortion experience and feelings in a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere, regardless of how they are processing their abortion or the abortion of someone else. Help, healing, and hope are accessible without guilt or condemnation for anybody who has been affected by abortion. You're not the only one who feels this way. It's never too late or too soon to talk about your decision with someone who understands and is prepared to listen, no matter where you are in your post-abortion journey.
