No matter what happened, you should seek medical attention as soon as you can, even if you are not sure if you want to report the incident.
While you might be tempted to try to erase all signs of what happened to you, and understandably so, it is important to preserve the evidence. You may need it to provide proof of criminal activity or to obtain a protection order.
Do not do any of the following things until you’ve gotten medical attention and/or contacted the police.
Get help from medical or law enforcement personnel as soon as possible, or at least within 72 hours of the assault.
