Signs Of Sexual Abuse

I just want to share the signs of sexual abuse (these can apply to many other forms of abuse too) in the hopes that someone can help someone who suffers through it and can prevent it from happening further.

These are the signs according to creditted doctors and therapists:

changes in behaviour
refusal to see a certain person
children may run away from home
the development of an eating disorder
drop in achievement at school or work (can be a significant increase as schoolwork can become an escape from the abuse)
drug or alcohol use
nightmares
dread of a medical examination
pregnancy
attempting suicide
