I'm a young mother of an 18 month old little girl. I need to talk to a mother of a toddler who has been sexually abused. What are the signs? How did you know? Please I know what to do!

im so sorry beyond words. the biggest red flag will b acting out sexually.the minute u feel that she has been touched and returned to u. u need to examine her private parts for redness swelling and anything out of the ordinary.even if u don't see any red flags but u feel like there is something going on...plse I urge u to take her to the hospital and tell them and I assure u they can tell and will be very helpful. please don't wait on this she looks to u for protection.dont let her down.act on it right away...this is her life and well being its much better to be safe then sorry.

I WISH YOU CLD TAKE HER TODAY. THE SOONER THE BETTER FOR THE DOC. I DONT THINK THE DOC/NURSES WLD OF NOTICED UNLESS THEY WERE TOLD. I BELEIVE THEY HAVE A ALL TOGETHER DIFFRENT APPROACH WHEN CONCERN OF POSSIBLE SEXUAL ABUSE. YOU R DOING THE RIGHT THING STAYING HOME WITH HER. I WLD ABSOLUTLY NOT EVER TAKE HER TO THAT BABYSITTER AGAIN. NO MATTER IF THINGS TURN OUT FOR THE BETTER CONCERNING THE OTHER.JUST BECAUSE OF HER STRONG REACTION....THT TELLS ME SOMETHING NOT HEALTHY GOING ON.I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU U R MAKEING THE RIGHT CHOICES U R A GOOD MOM. HANG IN THERE..BY BRINGING THIS UP U PROBABLY SAVEING MANY CHILDREN AS WELL. GOD WILL B THERE FOR U I CAN PROMISE YOU THAT. PLEASE STAY STRONG FOR HER AND TAP IN ALL THE RESOURCES U CAN FOR STREGTH AND SUPPORT.

Thank you I'm bringing her to the dr first thing tomorrow morning. She has been really scared to have any body change her diaper all of a sudden out of No where she starts grabbing her private and say ow. She just had lab work done and they did a catheter no infection. Would they have noticed something when they did that? She seems terrified of her babysItter now and I ended up missing work because she seemed so afraid.
