So, the polise know that I was molested from the time I was 5 until I was 11 and a half. I filed my statement and everything. Today, I was interviewed by the Child Advocacy people. My mom just informed me that I will have to a gyno. I'm 13 and kinda ditsy. I know what a gyno does and is. Why do I have to see one?! I was molested for the last time a year and half ago! I would understand if it JUST happened, but it didn't! Also, what is the gyno going to do to me? Is it going to be very triggering? The doctors hands will be DOWN THERE. I read that they press your stomach whilst doing a pap smear. I have scars and cuts from SH...

Beatles or the Rolling Stones?
You're gonna make mistakes.
Come on, baby.

Hey there Anna,
I'm sorry for what you have had to go through in your past. You seem like an incredibly strong and brave person. You should be really proud of yourself for what you are doing.
I know it can seem scary, but it really is important to get examined and make sure you are okay. This is a rundown of what the gynecologist will do during the exam.
Also, you can definitely bring someone with you to the exam if you want. Sometimes that can really help keep you grounded and feel more comfortable. And if at any point you can't handle the exam you can always request the doctor stop.
I hope this helps and that you're doing okay. You can PM me anytime if you need to talk.
