Healing After Abortion

Whether you had an abortion recently or years ago, you may still be suffering from the experience. While some women experience relief following their procedure, feelings of sadness or regret may surface shortly after or years down the road. Whatever you are experiencing, your feelings are valid.At Alpha, we provide our Hearts of Healing Abortion Recovery Program which allows women and men to find healing from the effects of abortion related trauma.

Abortion is never an easy decision, no matter your situation. That’s why many people experience strong emotions after the procedure is complete. Take a minute to go through this questionnaire to find out whether you are struggling with a past abortion.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • Do you struggle to stop thinking about your abortion?
  • When abortion comes up in conversation, do you quickly change the subject?
  • Are you having a hard time forgiving yourself?
  • Do you have a problem being around young children or babies?
  • Do certain times of the year (the anniversary of your procedure, for example) upset you?
  • Are you using alcohol or other drugs to cope?
  • Have you developed an eating disorder, depression or anxiety?
  • Are you feeling extreme sadness, guilt, or hopelessness since the procedure?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you will likely benefit from abortion recovery counseling. Alpha Women’s Center is here to help you. Contact us today for more information on the program.
