See a doctor

In cases involving sexual assault, it is highly recommended that you see a doctor as soon as possible to make sure any medical issues, such as sexually transmitted infections, unwanted pregnancy or injuries are addressed.

Pregnancy – emergency contraception can be extremely effective if it is given within 48 hours of unprotected sex. It may be given up to 120 hours after unprotected sex.

You can request a forensic medical examination - which may be conducted up to 5 days after a sexual assault.

The doctor will be able to provide better care if they know about the assault, but you can choose how much detail you want to tell.

The FedUni Health Centre can facilitate access to medical and counselling care. Students studying at a partner location please see your doctor or a doctor suggested by Support Staff at your teaching location.
