Choosing to have a termination is never an easy decision. For some women, even if there is an initial sense of relief and they feel they have come to terms with their decision, painful feelings can emerge that are difficult to understand. This can happen immediately afterwards, within a few months or even years later.
Possible feelings might include anger, shock, guilt, a sense of loss, depression, longing, emptiness and sadness. You may feel a mixture of these emotions or just one of them.
