A member asked:

What are some signs that a child as been sexually abused?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Often striking: Marked behavior change for the worse, secrecy, sexual acting-out, showing a knowledge of sexual matters beyond what's appropriate. Photos, sexually transmitted disease, & some physical findings are proof. The law allows for conviction in the absence of physical evidence, but the standards used by physicians require some physical evidence for "definite abuse.".
