A woman’s decision to have an abortion can vary from being really straight forward to very challenging.

When considering an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy, a woman makes the best decision they can for their lives based on what they know and understand at the time.

There is no right or wrong way to feel after an abortion, and no right or wrong way to move forward with it.

Dealing with feelings afterwards can take time for some women.

Remember that after an abortion your body goes through a number of changes. The impact of medications and hormonal shifts can contribute to your feelings for up to three or four weeks afterwards.
