Possible Symptoms After An Abortion

Possible Symptoms After An Abortion
For some women, they have an abortion and move on with life. However, for many women, they experience a wide range of not only physical complications – but also emotional symptoms. Every woman is different. Most medical articles and websites will focus only on the physical symptoms after an abortion, so it is wise to be educated on the possible emotional effects as well. An abortion can be a traumatic event in a woman’s life that may  not even be realized until years have passed. The following is a list of general symptoms to be aware of not only for yourself, but also for a friend or loved one who may exhibit any of these:

  • alcohol/drug use
  • anger
  • anxiety
  • denial
  • feelings of loss, grief or sadness
  • repeated abortions
  • intimacy difficulties
  • nightmares
  • low self-esteem
  • regret or guilt
  • depression
  • suicidal thoughts

Anyone experiencing any of these is not alone, and most people won’t ever talk about it. Clearway Clinic offers post-abortion counseling called ClearPast. Reach out and find help for yourself or for a friend today.
