Australian women attending community mental health services were surveyed to determine the relationship between sexual trauma, sexual activity, and sexual health seeking behaviors. Self-reported history of “forced sex” was 58.4% (n = 122 out of 220). Latent class analysis revealed a three-class model: “sexually active and health seeking,” “low sexual activity and health seeking” and “low sexual activity and not health seeking.” An association with general practitioner engagement and sexual health seeking behaviors was found. Rates of self-reported sexual trauma reinforce the need for screening and trauma informed care. Groupings may reflect different aspects of recovery associated with sexual health behaviors.
