I got molested as a child but i don't remember it and i want to know what is wrong with me?

I got molested as a child but i don't remember it and i want to know what is wrong with me?

There may be nothing: Wrong with you or you may be suffering greatly. The fact that you cannot remember is common among sexual abuse victims. It is indeed a common reason for someone to enter therapy. Painful memories can easily be repressed. There's no problem with that as long as they do not affect your mood, behavior, or relationships in adulthood. If they do, then it would be advisable for you to enter therapy to explore the issue further.If you wish to remember what happened, then more of an uncovering psychoanalytictherapy with hypnotic components may be advisable. If you do not wish to remember then that is entirely a decision between you and your therapist and will have a lot to do with both your and your therapists perceptions of your over all psychological strength. Best wishes. ...Read more

When I was a lot younger, I was molested. Will it still hurt when I have sex now that I'm an adult?

When I was a lot younger, I was molested. Will it still hurt when I have sex now that I'm an adult?

Two Kinds of Pain: It is possible that sex now will hurt physically, but (1) it is more likely that you will have emotional symptoms, and (2) even the physical pain (vaginismus, for example,) is likely to be emotionally grounded. Try taking sex slowly, so you can relax while doing it. Stop or pause if you need. Don't try to force anything. Talk to your partner ahead of time, so (s)he can understand and help you. ...Read more
