Support for you
Every woman’s experience is unique. Some women feel relieved they are pregnant, and some women may not feel so. Some women have deep feelings attached with pregnancy and others may not feel much at all. It’s common to feel many things all at once! Some women decision have feelings of relief, sadness, loneliness, anger, lack of interest in work, school or even sex. These can all exist at one time. That may be confusing, but it’s also normal.
If you are in a crisis or know someone who has, maybe you have noticed changes emotionally or physically, and you wonder what has brought on the change. Many women, no matter what they feel, find it helpful to talk about their crisis. A trained professional, a family member or a close friend can offer great support. Some women avoid talking through their feelings because they feel ashamed, or they fear the judgment of others.
You might not have told your parents, friends or significant other about your abortion. That doesn’t mean you need to sort out your feelings alone. In fact, the people close to you may be experiencing the same things. You can get help.
One thing that surprises many women is when these feelings don’t show up in the weeks and months but pop up years later. It can be overwhelming and confusing to deal with emotions from the distant past. It’s never too late to get help or counselling. There is no time limit on your feelings. Just as every woman experiences crisis differently, so every woman also has a unique path to moving on. It doesn’t matter if dealt with a crisis yesterday or 20 years ago. Pregnancy Help Line can support you.
