The test you had in the hospital will only tell you if you were pregnant or had an STI before the assault. If you contracted anything from the offender, it will not show up until later. Even if you were given medication as a precaution, it is very important that you be re-tested in two weeks.

The Discharge Instruction sheet given to you when you left the health care facility contains very important information. You should bring that sheet with you to any follow-up appointments.

If you received hormone therapy to prevent pregnancy, you may have some nausea. If you were not given a prescription for anti-nausea medication and you need some, call the hospital where you were seen. (See Discharge Instructions for telephone number).

It may take up to two weeks for your period to start. If it does not, or if you think you might be pregnant, you should have a blood test for pregnancy to be sure.
