Hello. : Hello. It sounds like you have been through a very difficult time. I don't think an on-line doctor can answer this very sensitive question. Ultimately, you will need to weigh in the pros and cons. I suggest that you work with a counselor. It would help you to process the abuse as well as being a good sounding board for how you will approach this in the future. I sincerely hope that you are on the road to healing. Take care.
