Could Sexual abuse cause STDs?

I was wondering if sexual abuse could cause the victim to have an STD(s).

Re: Could Sexual abuse cause STDs?

Unfortunately, yes. Any person in sexual contact w/an infected person has the risk of contracting the infection. I would advised to get tested just to be safe. Hope this helps <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/round.gif">

Yes, the crontacting of an STD by a child is one of the commonest ways the abuse is discovered.
