    Good evening. Sorry about your girlfriend. Being raped at any age can be very traumatizing for any individual. It's especially so when it occurs at a very young age. If not dealt with properly at that time, the can cause what is called post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd) when it's severe. It can also lead to emotional difficulties, low self esteem, depression etc. She needs to see a psychologist

    just as u said wen it very serious it could lead to emotional disorder but she has started having emotional feelings now compared to before. and she is very strong now it only comes to her mind once a while if she is alone which she has kind of find solution to that by engaging herself in game activities but her only trouble now is scared of sex. would she still meet a therapist for that.

    Yes she still needs to see a psychologist to work on her issues, if not, she will always be afraid of sex. If you need a psychologist, please send an email to findadoctor@kangpe.com stating your request and location and one will be provided for her. Take care
