OVERVIEW

If you’ve had an abortion you are not alone.

It’s estimated that one in three women have had an abortion in this country. Every woman’s experience is unique. The psychological and emotional side effects following abortion vary from woman to woman and can be just as real as the physical side effects. Some common feelings after abortion are initial relief, then sadness, anger, guilt, regret, anxiety, and grief. It doesn’t matter if your abortion was yesterday, weeks or even years ago. These feelings can crop up at any time to disrupt your life.

Contact Options about our After Abortion Recovery program if you are struggling emotionally after an abortion. Suffering alone in silence may lead to depression. If you think you may be depressed, please contact a mental health professional as soon as possible.

FAQ

Am I really pregnant? Why is an early ultrasound necessary?

Even if you have a positive urine or blood pregnancy test, you may not have a viable pregnancy. An ultrasound exam is the only way to be sure. Get a free ultrasound at Options after you schedule your first appointment.

* An ultrasound examination is available during the first trimester for women who are not yet under a doctor’s care. The purpose of the ultrasound is limited to diagnosis of viability and gestational age.

What should I know before considering abortion?

Get a FREE Ultrasound at Options
If an ultrasound reveals that the pregnancy will end naturally, abortion will not be necessary.

Get Tested for STDs at Options
You must know whether you are infected with an STD prior to having an abortion. There are often no symptoms. Abortion opens the cervix creating a high risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) if you are infected. PID is a leading cause of infertility.
