Risks of both medical and surgical abortion include: cramping, bleeding, nausea, diarrhea, and pain. Although rare, other risks may include: hemorrhage (life-threatening, heavy bleeding), infection, damage to organs (tearing or puncture by abortion instruments during surgical abortion), pre-term birth in later pregnancies, and life-threatening anesthesia complications (surgical abortion).
Some women experience a range of long-term adverse psychological and emotional effects. Some people may also be more at risk for guilt and/or depression-like symptoms if thier decision to abort conflicts with their spiritual beliefs.
