MOST UNNOTICED EFFECTS 

INCURRED 

BY SEXUAL ABUSE

    These are some issues that stem from different forms of sexual abuse that often go unnoticed by survivors of sexual abuse and MOST ALWAYS by both Mental Health counselors and all 

Medical field staff (incl. Doctors/Nurses).


Here is a short list of a few. More will be added in time:


ORAL ABUSE -

Dental Care; Brushing Teeth

Dental Visits/Procedures

Claustrophobia


Depending on the age of the initial abuse, often there is issues with one brushing or caring for their teeth and issues during dental procedures due to the trauma and the brutal force of this occurrence (especially those very young abused in this way). 


One main issue is gagging whenever an instrument 

goes near the back of the throat. 


When attending dental procedures for basic cleanings or other procedures, I recommend letting your dentist know of this matter to help ease the experience. It has helped me greatly.


As well, due to the trauma and the brutal force 

caused by this form of sexual abuse, both the teeth formation 

and gums issues can also occur as time moves on. 


Another issue caused by this form of sexual abuse is feeling suffocated, as in claustrophobia.
