Some women feel relief after an abortion, while others experience strong negative disturbances. Some of these reactions may be immediate. Some occur many years after the abortion. Post abortion grief can be related to a woman’s age, length of pregnancy, previous mental health, religious or cultural beliefs, or whether she was pressured into an abortion.

Men do suffer after abortion. Available studies indicate that the emotional impact of abortion on fathers may include depression, guilt and shame. Some post abortive men also demonstrate self-destructive behaviour such as abusing alcohol, drugs and sex. A large percentage of unmarried relationships dissolve following an abortion.
