Sexual Abuse

One out of every three women will be raped in her lifetime.

The emotional and psychological effects of sexual abuse can last quite a while. And healing from sexual abuse is a long and emotionally draining process.

The long-term effects of sexual abuse include poor self-esteem, difficulty trusting others, anxiety, feelings of isolation, depression, self-destructive tendencies, sexual maladjustment, and substance abuse.

Sexual Abuse and Female Sexual Dysfunction

Sexual abuse is a serious sexual barrier—it is one of the leading factors of female sexual dysfunction. If a woman has been a victim of sexual abuse, many issues must be sorted out before she can even begin to think about achieving an orgasm.

Sexual AbuseIf a woman was ever sexually abused as a child or adult, she may be reluctant to trust her partner. And trust is a major step towards working towards orgasm, and having a satisfactory sex life.

The victim may have also attached a bad stigma to sex, decreasing her sexual desire, and therefore making intimacy quite a difficult thing to enjoy for both partners.

The victim’s desire may also be decreased because of her fear of sex. Because of the trauma of the experience, she may hesitate to be in another intimate situation again.

Here are some of the most prominent sexual problems faced by sexually abused women:

  • Hypoactive sexual desire disorder: An absence of libido. There is no interest in initiating sex and little desire to seek stimulation.
  • Sexual aversion disorder: An aversion to or avoidance of sexual prompts or sexual contact.
  • Female sexual arousal disorder: An inability to achieve and progress through the stages of "normal" female arousal.

Healing from Sexual Abuse

Issues of sexual intimacy that stem from sexual abuse may be straining on the relationship. But, in order to heal the relationship, the victim must heal herself first.

Counseling or therapy is an effective method of sexual abuse recovery. In fact, this is the only way that a victim of sexual abuse will learn how to deal with her trauma and eventually overcome it.

Also, the love and support of a caring partner through the counseling process will help to make healing from sexual abuse a little less difficult.

You can find a qualified counselor or therapist by searching the yellow pages, or by getting a referral from your family doctor.
