Brief Answer:
Not possible

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Thanks for using this portal for your query.
It is not possible to gather any medical evidences 2 months after the sexual assault of a married female.
This is so because the changes in the hymen and vagina due to sexual acts are already present in a married female.
Semen samples, blood samples and skin in nails samples of the covnict are unlikely to be found after such a ling time.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
