After abortion feelings and emotions are perfectly normal. Making sure you have proper after abortion care is important to the process as well. So, whether your decision to have an abortion was difficult or clear from the start, you may be wondering what to expect emotionally and physically.
A person facing this choice wants someone to be with them at a time like this. They want a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to laugh with. Your support is important and valued. The choice to end a pregnancy can be difficult, but it also often can be difficult for her friends and loved ones.
After the loss of a pregnancy, it is common to feel anger, grief, guilt and/or shame. You may also question your spiritual beliefs or feel a sense of relief or empowerment. It is possible, and normal, to feel all or none of these. It is also quite normal to have feelings that seem to contradict each other. For example, some people feel a sense of sadness and a sense of relief at the same time. For some people, the feelings may be felt weeks, months, even years after the loss of a pregnancy through abortion, miscarriage, stillbirth or adoption. Whatever you are feeling, you are entitled to a grieving which is an emotional health process after an abortion
