After Abortion / How will I feel afterwards?

Every woman's emotional reaction is different following an abortion, but there are some factors that can affect your emotional response. Following an abortion, as with any major life choice, you may experience feelings of relief and happiness mixed with sadness and regret. It is perfectly normal to experience conflicting emotions after any major change in your life. Changes in hormone levels may also affect your mood; as your body readjusts to your normal hormone levels you may feel emotions more intensely than usual. The most significant factor to determining how you will feel after an abortion is how certain you are of your choice prior to the procedure. The more secure you are that you have made the right decision for you, the better you are likely to respond emotionally after it is over.
