You owe it to yourself to learn the facts. Your health, including your mental wellness, is of top priority.

How Does Abortion Impact Mental Health?

First, what is mental health? The World Health Organization shares that mental health is “our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.”

According to this study, the National Institute of Medicine shares, “some women do have significant mental health issues that are caused, triggered, aggravated, or complicated by their abortion experience.”

The Cleveland Clinic and Mayo Clinic agree that some women do experience negative emotions linked to their abortions. Some of these feelings include:

  • Stress
  • Guilt
  • Loss
  • Sadness

Speak with a trusted individual who can help you understand what type of impact this procedure may have on you. Get the facts so you can make an empowered decision that will impact your future.
