The medical exam has two goals: first, to treat the full extent of any injury or physical trauma and to consider the possibilities of sexually transmitted disease or pregnancy and, second, to properly preserve evidence in case you decide to pursue legal action.
It is important that you do not bathe, shower, douche, brush your teeth, relieve yourself, drink or change your clothing, as you may be destroying evidence you will need if you decide to report the incident to local law enforcement.
