Could I have been sexually abused as a child?

Recently, my mother came back to visit. I had asked her once if I was sexually abused by one of her boyfriends, referring to her boyfriend at the time when I was between 2-3 years of age. I have no memory of him, but I've seen pictures of him and me together. She told me that she would never put me in harms way. The way I acted when I was a kid, making my dolls have sex, and me playing a sexual game with a girl who was my age, and recently having a fear of men? I'm now 20 years old. This is leading me to wonder: Was I was sexually abused as a child?
