After I had the abortion it was like I was holding this big secret. I didn’t want anyone to know because I felt guilty and so ashamed. There’s always this sense of loss and I struggle with sadness.
Although many women feel some relief after an abortion, many others have negative emotions afterwards. These reactions may be immediate or may occur years later.
When you contact a pregnancy care centre, you will meet people who want to help. It is a safe, nonjudgmental, confidential place to express and work through the emotions associated with abortion loss.
You don’t have to face this alone.
