How Do Women Feel After A Pregnancy Termination?
HER Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘How Do Women Feel After A Pregnancy Termination?’
Did you know most women DO NOT regret their decision to terminate a pregnancy and are no more likely to experience mental health problems than women who carry an unplanned pregnancy to term?
What if you’ve already made your decision, but you are still not sure about your emotional health after the procedure? And you wonder, what will you possibly feel after pregnancy termination?
- The most common emotional reactions after pregnancy termination are minimal or none as it’s a personal choice.
- A small group of women may feel relief, transient guilt, sadness, and a sense of loss.
- There is no good evidence from large surveys that choosing to terminate an unwanted pregnancy places a woman at higher risk of subsequent depression than choosing to deliver an unwanted baby.
- The percentage of women who regret carrying and delivering an unwanted pregnancy is very high.
The type of abortion procedure you have depends on a few factors, including how far along you are in your pregnancy, your medical suitability, which procedures are available in your area, and your preferences. A health care provider can also discuss the options with you to help you make an informed decision.
