“Can I get an emergengy std test if I was raped?”

A: “Yes. STD testing after a sexual assault is quite common. If you have been sexually assaulted, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Most medical centers and hospital emergency departments have doctors and counselors who have been trained to take care of someone who has been raped. It’s important to get medical care because a doctor can check you for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and internal injuries.”
