damage from rape
Jun 5, 2007

please please help me. i am 15 years old and my uncle raped me by putting his **** up my back passage. it happened 2 days ago and it really really hurts. i am still bleeding occasionally and have so much pain i feel like i will pas out. i cant get help because he will kill himself if anyone finds out. how can i check if i am ok. what damage could he have caused. please helpi i am really scared. DONT TELL ANYONE PLEASE

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

I won't tell anyone, but you must. What your uncle did was very wrong and your fears (or his claims) that he will kill himself if anyone finds out must not keep you from reporting what happened. Chances are your uncle has psychological problems for which he needs help. Plus, you may have medical problems and other consequences from this incident. Can you confide in parents? A teacher at school? A clergyman? A doctor? If not, can you get to a local urgent care center or hospital emergency room? Try not to be afraid. You did nothing wrong, but not telling what happened to you would indeed be a serious mistake. If it will help, just print out a copy of this question and my response and give it to a doctor. He or she will help. I promise. It's the right thing to do.

Dr. Bob
