It may be a good idea to get tested for any STIs as prompt treatment can prevent you from becoming ill later on. If you do have a STI, treatment can prevent you from becoming more seriously ill. You can be tested at the local Sexual Health Clinic who offer appointment clinics across Fife.
Sexual Health Fife offers fully confidential information, treatment and advice. You do not need a letter from your doctor but you will have to return to clinic for any test results.
You do not have to disclose a name or disclose that you have been raped / assaulted.
Remember you can take a friend with you for support. You can contact Sexual Health Fife by phone to book an appointment on 01592 64 79 79. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 1.30pm. Or visit the Sexual Health Fife website to see all drop in and appointment clinics and times.
If you are unsure as to whether or not any contraception was used, there is a possibility of pregnancy. You can take the morning after pill anytime up to 72 hours after the assault. You can get this from your GP, local Family Planning Clinic or over the counter at most pharmacies. If you get the pill over the counter, there may be a charge and this can be up to £25. Additionally, you can have a coil fitted up to 5 days after. This can be done at your local Family Planning Clinic or GP. You may also consider doing a pregnancy test. Again this can be carried out by your GP or Family Planning Clinic but you can also buy them over the counter and they are accurate approximately 2-3 weeks after conception.
