Sexual abuse occurs when a woman is forced to have sex or to perform sexual practices without her consent. Studies show that between 10% to 30% of women have been physically abused sexually. More women have experienced visual verbal sexual abuse. In many cases the abuse was repeated continually,usually when the woman was a child or an adolescent and unable to resist.
In other case the sexual abuse started when the women was mature.Sexual abuse in childhood may be a factor in the development of eating disorders,depression,chronic pelvic pain and sexual problems,
Although it may be embarrassing and difficult to talk about sexual abuse,it helps to relieve the underlying distress if you can mention it. by john njikanma.
