What’s The Timeline For Recovering From The Trauma of Infidelity?

The Team at Bloom,

Discovering your partner’s infidelity can be completely traumatic. In fact, about 70% of women who discover their partner’s betrayal will experience trauma symptoms that parallel Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Experiencing extreme anxiety, depression, insomnia, and eating disorders.

Frequently we’re asked about the timeline for recovering from the trauma of sexual betrayal. Dr. Kevin Skinner answered this question during one of our community discussions. You can listen to his response below:


Infidelity or betrayal in a marriage or relationship can be traumatizing. Create feelings of chaos, confusion and heartache.

Bloom created one of the first, if not the very first, assessments looking at trauma from infidelity. Over 7,000 betrayed spouses and partner from all over the world have completed our assessment. You can take the assessment here.
