You are not alone.

IPV or Intimate Partner Violence is used to describe physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. Millions of people are affected by IPV every year. According to National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey nearly 1 in 4 women have experienced some form of IPV in their lifetime.

Health related issues associated with IPV are:
