Question: Hello,

If a rape incident took place of a married female victim almost 2 months ago then is there a way to conduct a medical examination, gather medical evidence / proof even if almost two months have passed by. What tests are involved?

Thanks for helping.

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.

I am on the pill now for a month, I heard of break through bleeding but I think it s only meant to last a little while. I was fingered by my boyfriend and an hour later I started to bleed. I am unsure if my hymen is broken or it is a break through bleed. It has been going on for over a week. Please help.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!
