How will I feel emotionally after the abortion?
The majority of patients are relieved after the abortion procedure. Having an abortion is a very difficult decision for most patients. It involves moral, ethical, financial, social, and religious issues. Other feelings patients may experience are anger, guilt, and regret which generally only last 2 to 4 weeks. If these feelings last longer, the patient should speak with organizations such as Exhale (www.4exhale.org) or Backline (www.yourbackline.org) which are free after-abortion hotlines.
