Assessment of first sexual intercourse in young women with a history of childhood sexual abuse

, : Assessment of first sexual intercourse in young women with a history of childhood sexual abuse. Australian & New Zealand Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology 51(3): 276-279

Women reporting childhood sexual abuse (CSA) that involved actual or attempted penetration may not identify this as their first sexual intercourse. Data were drawn from a population-based, prospective cohort study spanning adolescence to adulthood. CSA prior to age 16 and age of first sexual intercourse with a male were assessed retrospectively. More than half of women reporting CSA in the form of actual or penetrative abuse reported an age of first sexual intercourse at or beyond 16 years. Direct questioning about CSA is needed to accurately ascertain sexual history.
