Should I report my girlfriend for assault? Watch
Unless you are someone who bruises really easily she must have hit you hard.
Take some photos (however embarrassing). I'd consider going to the doctor just to be safe (if things get twisted down there... well Bad Things Can Happen). It would also support any case against her.
What a horrible person. Good luck.
If you want to continue dating her: No.
If you don't: Yes.
A couple of days ago during a big argument my girlfriend kicked me (very hard) in the balls. It had gotten to the stage where we were just throwing insults at each other, she made a remark about me being small in the downstairs department so I responded by calling her fat and flat chested. That's when she kicked me. I'm hoping that there will be no permanent damage, but there's a lot of swelling and bruising.. Anyway, she has since apologised by text message, but I'm considering whether I should report her. I don't see why she should get away with it to be honest. Even if she hasn't done me any permanent harm, she could have done and it could even have stopped me having children in the future. The main thing stopping me is the embarassment involved, I don't really want to have to face being interviewed and examined etc. So what do you think? Should I report her?
I hope you mean ex-girlfriend, as well.
Note: I'm sorry if I caused offence with my earlier comments, my reaction regarding the police was strongly influenced by events involving a friend.
Best of luck though, violence in relationships is awful, but no one who can help will be interested in you.
You should end the relationship though man, you can't let it keep going
Don't tell the police. They will do absolutely nothing to help you.
If you want to keep on dating, don't do anything. If you don't, get your own back proportionately (ie try it on with someone close to her).
OP report it. Violence should be reported. Maybe if more men reported these things, the police would do more about it.
Can't believe people are telling him not to go to the police. Imagine if it was the other way around and he had attacked her and left her with bruising and swelling, people would be ****ing outraged.
If you lashed out and punched her or something, would she go to the police? Most women would.
What she did could leave you sterile and therefore incapable of having children in the future. If 10 years down the line you find yourself in that position, it will be too late to do anything.

Some of the people on this post are everything that is wrong with the World today. 'It's only minor', 'Nobody will do anything about it', 'The police wont help you'. I'm absolutely disgusted. As Machop said above, Imagine if this was the other way around! The man would be in a cell already. Of course he should report it. It's not just women who are the victims of domestic violence and you're a ****ing idiot if you think it's not a big deal when it's the male being the victim.
You're right, but police just don't have interest in helping men in domestic violence, and neither does society. Look at all of the effort that goes into raising awareness into domestic abuse and how many women get beaten to a pulp by men, and how all men have to be educated not to hit women.
It's just not the case that we can only focus on women though, but we will continue to, until women decide that violence against men also requires attention.
