What can I do if I have been raped?
Every woman’s experience with rape is different. But there are a few things you need to do to help yourself recover.
First, ask yourself these questions:
- Who can you ask for help?
- Do you want to tell the police about the rape?
- Where can you go for medical care?
- Do you want to try to punish the rapist?
Do not blame yourself. You did not deserve to be raped. There was nothing you did that made it right for a man to force sex on you.
