(Or press escape)
Following any sexual assault you may have been infected with one or more sexually transmitted infections (STi) or you have become pregnant.
STi, pregnancy screening and emergency contraception can be accessed quickly. Crisis Point has a 24 hr fast-track referral system in place, based with local hospitals in the area.
The ISVA will arrange any sexually transmitted infection screening for you, this can only take place after seven days from the assault.
No infections can be detected before this time, the support worker or ISVA will attend with you.
The importance of screening is very high, many infections can develop into serious long term ill-health, causing infertility or death.
The deliberate spread of the AIDS / HIV virus can lead to legal action against the untreated individual.
Your local G.U.M. clinic offer specialised treatment strategies for people who are infected with the HIV virus or Hepatitis C.
We can help you understand the risks and long-term programmes available, if you have contracted serious infections such as HIV or Hepatitis C.
