|Title:||Abortion among young women and subsequent life outcomes||Authors:||Casey, Patricia R.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5799||Date:||Aug-2010||Abstract:||This article will discuss the nature of the association between abortion and mental health problems. Studies arguing about both sides of the debate as to whether abortion per se is responsible will be presented. The prevalence of various psychiatric disorders will be outlined and where there is dispute between studies, these will be highlighted. The impact of abortion on other areas such as education, partner relationships and sexual function will also be considered. The absence of specific interventions will be highlighted. Suggestions for early identification of illness will be made.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2010 Elsevier||Keywords:||Abortion; Mental illness; Depression; Substance abuse; Anxiety; Social outcome; Sexual function; Interventions; Causality; Risk factors||DOI:||10.1016/j.bpobgyn.2010.02.007||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
