  • To treat injuries. Even if you do not feel injured, you may have experience bruising, lacerations, or internal injuries.
  • To obtain medication to treat for the prevention of sexually transmitted infections.
  • To access emergency contraception (if needed), which is more effective the earlier it is taken (must be within 5 days) .

If you want to collect medical evidence:

  • Seek help at the closest medical facility with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE). For students on or near campus, this includes Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital or Newton Wellesley Hospital. Health Service is available to help coordinate this visit.
  • Do not bathe, shower, brush teeth, or go to the bathroom (to the extent possible).
  • Do not change clothes, or if you have, place them in a clean paper bag.
  • If the environment in which the incident occurred is under your control, do not move or touch things.
  • Trained medical advocates from the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center are available 24/7 to accompany you to a medical facility.

If you are unsure what to do, visit www.surviverape.org, or call Health Service at 781-283-2810 to speak to the on-call clinician who can offer you options, care, and assist you in accessing resources.
