Does Abortion Cause Mental Health Problems?
A study on whether abortion can cause emotional problems determined that “abortion is consistently associated with elevated [higher] rates of mental illness compared to women without a history of abortion.” The study also found that having an abortion “directly contributes to mental health problems for at least some women.”
What Are The Symptoms?
Some women could experience any of the following symptoms after their abortion:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Relationship problems
- Substance misuse
- Suicidal thoughts
Although there are many other signs that you might be struggling with your abortion decision, it’s important to discuss how you feel with someone you can trust. Our client advocates are always available to talk with you.
