Sadness is the emotion most often associated with grief. Even if you were sure about your decision, you may still feel sad and may not even know why. Sometimes these feelings are caused by a drop in pregnancy hormones, which can affect you emotionally for weeks after the procedure. Your feelings may also be less about the abortion itself and more about life circumstances surrounding it. You can learn coping strategies to get back in touch with positive emotions. Avoid destructive behaviours and be aware of your emotions. How are you feeling?
