Information on Abortion - Risks and Side Effects

When gathering information on abortion, evaluate the risks involved. The risks and side effects vary from woman to woman, but it is important to understand the facts before undergoing any medical procedure.

The following physical complications are possible for 2-4 weeks following an abortion: abdominal pain and cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, spotting and bleeding, infection, sexual difficulties, sexual pain, damage to the cervix, infection, perforation of the uterus, and scarring of the uterus.

Many women who come to us for aftercare report emotional side effects after having an abortion. Many who have had abortions feel regret or guilt, grief, an increased tendency for anger, rage, or violence. Some also struggle with loneliness and relationship issues following the loss of their baby. Others report feelings of depression, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide.
