After having an abortion, you may wonder if your life will ever be the same. Maybe you feel overcome with sadness or feel completely numb.

You are not alone, regardless of where you are in the healing process. No matter if your abortion was last week or ten years ago, seeking after-abortion support is essential to your healing.

Why Seek Support?

The emotional challenges following an abortion can be complex.

Some women experience sadness and grief, while other women may experience more extensive mental health issues, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Suicidal behaviors

You deserve support no matter how big or small your emotional struggles may feel.

While taking time alone to journal and reflect on your feelings is helpful, it can be easy to feel isolated and lose hope that your pain will go away.

It can be tempting to believe that you’re all alone and that no one understands what you’re going through, but meeting with a support group can give you hope, knowing that you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

It’s also easy to feel misunderstood by those around you in the day-to-day, but gathering with a community of women facing similar emotional challenges may be the beginning of your path toward recovery.

You can also find healing in simply hearing the stories of others. While there is no pressure to share your own story, you might eventually find it incredibly healing.
