Following an abortion, many women experience an initial relief. The perceived crisis is over and life returns to normal. For most women, however, the crisis is not over. Months and even years later, many women experience significant Problems.
Women who have experienced abortion may develop the following:
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Difficulty Bonding with Partner or Children
- Self-destructive behaviors
- substance abuse
- eating disorders
- abusive relationships
- Re-experiencing events related to the abortion
Abortion also significantly increases the risk for:
- Clinical depression
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
