What To Do If You Have Just Been Sexually Assaulted
- Get to a safe place.
- Contact someone who can help you: a friend, the police (911) or the Midland Rape Crisis and Children’s Advocacy Center
- Do not shower, drink or eat, douche, or change your clothes. These activities destroy important physical evidence in the event that you decide to prosecute the assailant.
- Get medical attention. You may have hidden injuries and may want to explore options for preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases.
- Write down everything that you remember happening, with as much detail as possible. This can help with your own healing process and in any legal action you might decide to take.
