It was only a year later that I realized that what the doctor had done to me was sexual assault. At the time of the insemination I felt violated, and knew that this doctor was not treating me properly because I was in a same-sex relationship, but thought it was my interpretation, how could a doctor commit a violent act? He was forceful with equipment, aggressive when he spoke with me, and disregarded any pain I said I was experiencing. Later I thought: I hope this insemination does not work, I don't want to be impregnated as a result of this violent act.
