What Abuse Does to You

The CDC's 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System survey indicates that adolescents who reported being physically hurt in a dating relationship were also more likely to report that they engage in risky sexual behavior, binge drink, use drugs, attempt suicide and participate in physical fights. There is also a growing body of data that has found that abuse puts women more at risk for contracting HIV.
