No matter if the sexual assault has occurred recently or at some point in the past, you may have lots of questions and concerns about your experience and recovery. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There are many factors that might impact your path to healing. The impact of sexual assault is complex and every survivor can expect to have feelings and concerns that may be very specific to the type of sexual abuse you experienced.
