Seek help, survivor: Please do go to the police and the ER or a doctor you know who can do a rape kit and screen you for sexually transmitted disease and prescribe medication. If you've showered, which I assume you have after 4 days, then bring your unwashed clothes you wore during the rape, if they haven't been washed. There may be physical evidence on your clothes. It is scary. I'm so very sorry it happened. Bless u ...Read more

Why do I feel so ashamed of my history of rape? I know it wasn't my fault, i was in kindergarten. But 10 years have passed and i'm so ashamed of it.

Why do I feel so ashamed of my history of rape? I know it wasn't my fault, i was in kindergarten. But 10 years have passed and i'm so ashamed of it.

Sorry 4 your pain: You say that you understand that it was not your fault, but you still feel ashamed. It is likely that you understand at an intellectual but not at an emotional level. This is not uncommon. If you are interested, i would recommend therapy with a psychodynamically or psychoanalytically trained therapist. It is likely that you will gain significant insight into why you still feel shame. Good luck! ...Read more

What if you were raped but u didn't seek any medical attention. U just kept it to urself...?

Not wise: First you should go to a physician, explain what occurred and be thoroughly tested for stds and pregnancy. Then, it would be highly advisable to seek counseling. This should be either from a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist. Do not rely upon a religious leader although they can provide supplementary support. Proving what happened may be difficult. The legal system is not gentle. ...Read more

When people rape you with objects does that still count as rape? I read that it did count but some say it doesn't count.

See Answer: Rape is the act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person against their will. Lawyers may use "semantics" and define rape of a "penis insertion" into your vagina. Either way you look at it though, if you are having objects forced into your vagina against your will it is sexual abuse, and you should contact the proper authorities, good luck. ...Read more
