Abortion is the medical procedure used to end a pregnancy. We recommend that women talk to their healthcare provider before deciding on any method of abortion because they may need additional information to help them understand the ramifications of abortion.
What is an abortion?
An abortion is the ending of a pregnancy. In an abortion, the embryo or fetus is removed from the uterus. Women who choose to have an abortion often feel strong emotions about it, such as sadness and regret in most cases.
Health Risks Associated with Abortion
You should be aware of the possible health risks associated with abortion. The following conditions have been linked to abortion in some studies:
- increased risk of depression and anxiety
- increased likelihood of ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that occurs outside the womb) in future pregnancies
- increased risk of preterm birth in future pregnancies
- decreased fertility rates (making it more difficult to become pregnant)
Abortions and Emotions
If you’re going through this incredibly difficult experience, you may have a lot of emotions to work through. There are many different emotions that can come up during this period, and we suggest you speak with someone that can help guide you through a decision matrix that can prevent your feelings of sadness, anger, and/or guilt.
If you are planning on having an abortion, it is important for you to talk about how you feel about it with a provider that can help you understand the next steps. It can be helpful for them if they know what kind of support or help would be best for you at this time. If there is anyone in your life who will not support your decision to speak with someone about your pregnancy or doesn’t agree with it, try not to let that person’s opinion overrule yours.
