    As for your question; PTSD happens after (post) a traumatic and stressful event including sexual assualt, things seen and/or done in warfare, from an incident causing serious injury or death reled treats.


    If the following symptoms occur more than a month after the trigger event and have a debilitating impact on the quality of one's life, PTSD is a likely diagnosis:


    vivid and disturbing flashbacks, blocking out or avoiding memories related to the event and in the case of sexual assault - being overly sexually aroused,


     In studying brains influenced by PTSD it is evident that deep neurological patterns are established due to an over-reactive adrenaline response during a traumatic event. This leads to lower than normal levels of cortisol and serotoin and fluctuations in dopamine levels.
