Raped in kindergarten, made me bleed in both anus and vagina. Happened several times. Hurt to go to the bathroom. Why would it bleed? Is this bad?
I am so sorry.: What a sad thing to hear that you were sexually assaulted as a young child! I am not surprised that you had bleeding. Your tissues as a five-year-old were certainly not ready for any sort of penetration. Even consenting adults in loving relationships often use lubricants for greater comfort during sex. I am assuming things are back to normal, and i hope you have sought counseling to help you. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Is taking a nap guarantee wil bring benefit or it jus wasting of time coz i wake up guitily.If it brings benefit how should the quality of a nap be?
Away with guilt!: Many people find a power nap (eve if you don't completely fall asleep) of about 15 minutes helpful to re-charge them for the rest of the day. If you sleep for a long period of time you can wake up groggy. Normal guilt is when you go against your value system and are getting feedback. Neurotic guilt is excessive, and hopefully that's not your case. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Varies: The need for naps varies considerably across children, along with the overall trend of decreasing need over time. Total sleep over the day is the key. Trouble is those who fight taking naps divide broadly into those who really need one and those who don't.
