Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I'm afraid to tell anyone, but I was raped last night. I know the boy! What should I do?

 

Scared

---

Dear Scared,

Take a deep breath and pull yourself together. When you have done that several times you will want to think about an adult you trust and can talk to about this. Telling a trusted adult about this is important. Make sure you pick the person you are most comfortable sharing this with. It won't be an easy conversation but it is a necessary one for you to begin healing. What happened is not your fault. Don't forget this. Tell yourself over and over if you need to this is not your fault. Whoever did this to you needs to be stopped. 

 

You need to take care of yourself. You can help stop him and take care of yourself by going to the hospital for an exam. The nurses and doctors at the hospital will be understanding and helpful during your rape exam. During this exam, the medical personnel will treat any injuries you have, give you antibiotics to treat any STIs, give you the option of taking a pill to prevent pregnancy, and collect any evidence. Going to the hospital does not mean you have decided to press charges or report the assault. It means you are taking care of yourself and will have the option of pressing charges when you get yourself in a place you can decide what to do. Hospital personnel may be required to report some assaults. Understand in some situations this is necessary. Remember you will begin healing the moment you tell someone and an adult you trust is a great place to start.

 

Take care of yourself and always remember this is not your fault,

Your BeingGirl Experts

If you were raped by someone who has HIV/AIDS I would feel so bad for you i think if someone has HIV/AIDS they would want to know how sex feels

Rape is the dirtiest thing that can happen to a girl...and im very sorry for those who experience it. I haven't (thankful) but when i was 7 a neighbor tried to. Thankfully, my mom noticed his pervertedness and stopped taking me to his wife's house for her to babysit me.
gab :D

My sister and I were both raped by girls, like a year ago. But I told my mom, and she helped us, she is a psychotherapist. I was just lucky that I didn't get any sexually transmitted diseases!

You definitely need to tell someone you know who can help you, but also remember, there are plenty of people on here that will listen to you. But it's important you tell a trusted adult around you. In 11th grade, my bf at the time raped me...I didn't tell anyone for about a year and I finally broke down and told my mom. I felt horrible and just like most people say, felt like it was my fault, like I should have done something about it. It's been four years, and I'm just now getting to the point where I see that it wasn't my fault, and I did all I could do. When I told my parents, we asked about reporting it, but it was a year later, there wasn't any proof since I didn't tell anyone at the time, so nothing could be done. That's even more of an example as to why you need to tell someone now. Something can be done, and it should be! Not only will you feel better, but you could save someone else from the same fate.
