Abstract [en]

Objectiveto describe women's experiences of an abortion in the second trimester.Designqualitative design using semi-structured interviews.Setting/participantssix women were interviewed after a second trimester abortion.Methodsthe women were interviewed in person after they were discharged from the hospital. Interviews were recorded, transcribed, and then analysed using qualitative content analysis.Findingsfour categories were identified: to consider and accept the decision; to lack understanding about the abortion procedure; to be in need of support and information; to have memories for life. Findings show that information and support during the whole abortion process is important. Women found it difficult to make the decision and going through abortion left memories for life.Conclusioninformation and support is of great importance for women in this vulnerable situation. The need for further support points out the need to have follow-up contacts with women after an induced second trimester abortion.
