I had an abortion

I had an abortion

If you have had an abortion, you may feel like you want to talk about your experiences with someone. You may know that having an abortion was the right decision for you, but you might still feel a mixture of emotions, happy and sad, that are hard to process alone.

Perhaps you felt pressured to have an abortion by someone else and that you had no other alternative or that you rushed your decision.

You may have had an abortion a long time ago. Perhaps emotions you didn't realise you had are just surfacing. You might have experienced periods of depression, or buried your feelings because you never felt able to talk to someone. It is never too late to talk.

Whatever your situation, we are here to listen. We can provide a calm and safe place to talk and can give you further resources that might help you.

If you feel you'd like to talk to someone, then our trained advisors are available. Just call our Helpline on 0300 4000 999 or click here to talk to an Online Advisor, our service is free.

Post-abortion support

At CareConfidential we sometimes use a post-abortion support programme called The Journey, which has helped many women who are struggling to process their emotions following an abortion.

Do you sometimes feel like the only person in the world going through this? Talking to someone who understands, could help.
If you feel you'd like to talk to someone, then our trained advisors are available. Just call our Helpline on 0300 4000 999 or click here to talk to an Online Advisor, our service is free.

Other sources of help

If you don’t feel ready to talk to us, try and find someone you trust to share how you are feeling. A close friend or relative may be able to support you to seek further help.

Your GP can also help following an abortion, with both physical and emotional concerns. They can also advise you about other counselling resources in your area and how to access them.
