Emotional and Psychological Risks

Post Abortion Stress ~

It takes two to make a pregnancy, and both are involved in the results

Some women experience an immediate feeling of relief following an abortion, but many find themselves with feelings they did not expect. They may have a difficult time talking about these feelings. However, many women who have had an abortion experience similar feelings. Some psychologists have labeled these problems as Post Abortion Stress. 

The symptoms of Post Abortion Stress cover a wide range of emotions and can affect both men and women who have lost a child to an abortion.

 

You may experience any of the following symptoms:

  • DEPRESSION

  • NIGHTMARES

  • FEELINGS OF LOSS

  • SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR

  • ANGER

  • REGRET

  • GUILT

  • DRUG OR ALCOHOL ABUSE

  • LOSS OF SELF-ESTEEM

  • SEXUAL PROBLEMS

  • BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS

  • EATING DISORERS

  • SUICIDE

 

Abortion can also be emotionally traumatic for the father. At first, some men may feel relieved; others feel powerless and angry. Whatever their first reaction might be, they can also experience guilt, isolation, and anger at themselves and their partner. They may need as much emotional support as the mother. It takes two to make a pregnancy, and both are involved in the results.
