Many women, and some men, who have been part of an abortion decision will experience Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS) at some point in their life. Abortion is a serious medical procedure with life-long risks and side effects. People don’t always realize this and make a quick decision they later regret, leading to this syndrome.
Symptoms vary but can include:
- Depression or feeling numb
- Suicidal thoughts
- Flashbacks to the abortion procedure
- Inability to bond with children you now have
- Eating disorders
- Alcohol and drug use
Post Abortion Syndrome is a serious issue, and one that you should seek help for. This is especially true because PAS will not go away on its own or slowly fade away. In fact, future events can trigger the syndrome to reoccur, even after years of feeling that “you’ve got it under control.”
