3 Things You Should Do If You Are Raped



under-age girls

Rape is popular, and no matter how hard we work to prevent it, it is still happening, and most time when people are raped they have no idea what they should do. No one prays or prepares for it. Rape could damage one’s life even without them know about it. Since it is still happening and there is no way to put a complete stop to it, all we can do is talk about how to prevent it and how to react if ever happens to you.
The truth is that there are no specific set of rules or an outline of actions to take if it happens, there are no definite ways to react, and it is different for everyone. You need to find what works for you. These are 3 things you should do if you are raped.

Go To The Hospital For Check Up

Rape could do a lot of terrible things to you, from injuries to infections to being pregnant, if ever someone gets raped, one thing they should quickly do is go to the hospital for checkup and to make sure everything is well, she may need drugs too to help with the pain depending on how bad it was and most of all she needs a doctor’s report as a proof of the rape.

Report To The Authorities

One thing that can help a rape victim heal, is knowing that the person responsible is in prison. According to the Nigerian constitution, rape offense gets one life imprisonment attempted rape gets one over 7 years. If you have gone to the hospital and you have the report with DNA samples, all you need to do is present it to the court, they will test the samples against him and he will go to prison. If you don’t go to the hospital or you wash up before going there, you would lose all the evidence. It’s hard, but immediately after it happens is the best time.

 Talk to Someone About it

Rape brings some very high levels of emotional trauma and psychological issues too. A person who was raped may never be able to recover from it, they may never be able to trust again or have meaningful relationships. They could even go as far as suicide, this is why if you get raped it’s always best to see a professional who would help you through the process.
Even if you can’t see one for any reason, you should at least tell people about it, let them know and be there to support you through all of it.
Rape is never your fault, it is never because of anything you did or didn’t do and we never pray that anyone gets raped, but then this is just something to know, just in case.
