Sexual abuse causes the appearance of other pathologies
Sexual and physical Abuse increases the risk of gynecological, central nervous system or stress-related problems by 50 to 70 percent, according to a study published in the medical journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
Higher prevalence of headaches, back pain, sexually transmitted diseases, bleeding and vaginal infections, urinary infections, loss of appetite, abdominal pain and digestive problems are some of the sequelae associated with sexual abuse.The team of Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell, Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore (United States), conducted a study comparing the diseases suffered by women who had been sexually abused, regardless of whether they had also suffered psychological abuse, with those that had not received abuse.The sample analyzed 2,005 women aged between 21 and 55 years. Using a test that measures the degree of sexual abuse, the researchers observed that 201 women received this type of abuse from their husbands, partner-in-law, ex-husbands or former sentimental partners.
According to the information obtained from the study, the authors claim that this type of abuse has a negative impact on the health of those affected in the long term. “Regardless of the short-term consequences such as bruises, wounds caused by abuse and associated infections,” they say.
