I was sexually abused as a child and now as my marriage is approaching, I am beginning to freak out. What should I do?
It would also be beneficial if you and your future spouse were involved in couple’s therapy. This could facilitate communication, and help provide education to your future husband regarding the initial difficulties related to intimacy.
There are medications which might also be helpful initially to reduce anxiety and intrusive thoughts. These are sometimes beneficial early in treatment, but the mainstay will be the work that you do in psychotherapy.
I wish you much success.
