It is common to worry that your body is different now because of the sexual abuse — especially your private parts. You may even wonder if other people can tell what has happened to you. Your body is changing as you grow. If you feel sore or uncomfortable, or have worries about your body, try and tell someone you trust. There are even people specially trained to talk to you about bodies.
