An unplanned pregnancy can cause all kinds of emotions. Sometimes, women regret their abortion decision months or years later, or the feelings of grief linger.

If you’re struggling to recover emotionally, there is hope. Options for Her offers an abortion recovery program for both women and men. Contact us to begin on a path toward healing.

You Aren’t Alone in Your Grief

According to experts, women can experience negative mental health impacts after an abortion. You are not alone.

Here are some circumstances that increase the chance of mental health issues after an abortion:

  • Feeling pressured to abort
  • Having existing maternal desires
  • Having pre-existing mental health issues
  • Having conflicting moral or religious beliefs about abortion

Do any of those describe your experience? It’s okay to grieve and give yourself grace. Even though you can’t change the past, you can forgive yourself and begin to heal.

How Can You Find Help To Recover?

Help is available after an abortion. Here are some actions you can take.

  • Speak with someone you trust and share your story.
  • Seek out local mental health and counseling organizations.
  • Join a support group of women struggling with this same issue. 
  • Take care of yourself. Start an exercise routine, sleep well, and eat a healthy diet.
  • Keep a journal and regularly write down your feelings.
  • If you find that you are having suicidal thoughts, call 988 and speak with someone at the Suicide and Crisis Hotline.
