The cause of a sexual assault is the person (perpetrator) of the violence. It is never the fault of the person who is assaulted.
If you are sexually assaulted, get medical care as soon as possible. Your health care provider may perform a physical exam or test for infections. Testing for pregnancy may be done, if it applies.
It is important to know your options for the sexual assault exam. You can accept or decline any part of the exam. Your health care provider can answer any questions that you have before, during, or after the exam.
