Well postpartum depression usually happens after giving birth to the baby, having an abortion is a hard thing to deal with even though it might seem like the right thing to do at the time, but of course if you regret your decision than of course it is possible to become depressed. Look I want to respond to this post in a personal way to actually help give advice, I have 3 friends who have had an abortion, and 2 of them had 2 abortions each. To be 100% honest of course they felt bad and were upset after it was done but they knew for themselves having the abortion was the right choice for them so eventually the sad feelings went away, they never regretted their decision just wished they could have gotten pregnant at a better point in their life.
If you are considering having an abortion i suggest you think it through very thoroughly because this is not something you can take back, just remember if you can't care for the baby there is always adoption there are so many lovely couples who would take the baby but then again that is also a hard choice to, if you are young you may be asking because you don't want anybody to know which would make abortion an easier option, one of my friends did this on her own because she was scared to tell her parents but this was also what she wanted. I would say if you are already panicking about this and feeling extremely guilty I dont think you should go through with it because than you might have a lot of regrets, look to be honest I have never been pregnant but I have been in situations where I thought i might have been and I highly considered an abortion because of my age, I am only 23 now so you get the point. But I hope you make the right decision for yourself and do not let anybody pressure you, this is your life and you need to be content with what you deciede. I hope this helps.
JadenBo8, absolutley! I do not know if itis called post partum but a woman's body starts to go through hormonal changes the first few weeks she is pregnant. In fact I would say that a woman would suffer depression on many levels, the removal of a viable fetus from the womb is immediate, therefore the body is even less ready for the change back to it's "unpregnant" state. With a full term pregnancy the body and the mind begin to ready themselves. I am quite sure the decision is very difficult, and all the what ifs... I think this women (hope) thought long and hard before going through with the abortion. That adds stress. My opinion is if this was the right decision for everyone involved that the woman should be allowed adaquate time to recover mentally, physically and spiritually have some alone time and a litle extra TLC Hope she feels better Fall Queen
