    It can, but it doesn't happen to every abuse survivor.

    One of those new treatments is called EMDR and it seems to be working wonders with people who have PTSD. Yes being molested can cause PTSD especially if there was no one there for that person to disclose to or talk to about the issue when it happened. Sometimes the victim is not believed and that is most tragic. If you are the person involved I would suggest you get with a therapist as fast as you can and get this resolved as it can lead to a lifetime of trouble.

    Please ask a doctor, as it wouldn’t surprise me.

    In fact it would surprise me if it didn’t.

    Thanks

    Any kind of trauma can cause PTSD.

    It can if the person doesn't deal with the emotions caused by the abuse.

      ignorant, ive dealt with the emotions and still have ptsd, it doesnt just go away b.c. you dealt with emotions, particularly if trauma started young . it can however be managed.
