Hello Ajeng, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Blunt force blows (including hand blows) to the head, especially if the blow is hard enough, can of course cause a variety of acute and long-term complications. Acute complications can occur when the impact on your head is hard enough to cause a blood vessel to rupture in the brain, causing bleeding in the brain. This condition can endanger your life if it occurs.
The long-term complications of repeated head impacts can be manifold. These long-term complications may not be seen in the next 1-2 years, but research has shown that repeated head hits can increase the risk of developing congenital disorders and neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's) at a younger age. This happens a lot in athletes (such as boxers) who have had a lot of impact or repeated injuries to their head.
If you often experience beatings by your boyfriend, it is better if you do not reconnect with your boyfriend. Staying in an unhealthy relationship where you experience repeated abuse (physical or psychological abuse) will not be good for you. Seek help from those closest to you if you often experience such physical torture, take a post mortem to a forensic doctor, and report it to the authorities.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
