After cases of harassment and child abuse like Zainab case, now people are sharing their stories on social media about this. A doctor shared her patients horrifying story on twitter which ensued is proof of the actual magnitude of the situation in Pakistan.
Doctor Fatima Shireen took to Twitter to talk about her medical experience when she came across a patient who was brought in because she was suffering from excessive post coital bleeding. It is a well known fact that although bleeding after intercourse is a normal phenomenon, that is not always the case. The patient, however, died due to internal injuries and according to autopsy reports, the patient suffered from serious post-coital tears since she was treated most inhumanely.
She went on to repeat the situation in case she had not made it clear how serious this really was and questioned why we still shy away from sex education;
Cases like these are rarely reported because the very mention of them supposedly brings great shame to the name of the family which is why there is a dire need to address these issues and not shun them as taboo.
