Did you report the crime or see a physician, Brittany? How long ago, in days, did this happen? If it was 5 days ago or less, you can obtain emergency contraception.

Brownish discharge and bleeding does not sound like a good sign after an assault. You need to get into a physician now. Do you need help finding somewhere nearby you can go to?

Honey, don't contemplate what it could be. Go to a physician NOW and get checked out. You very well could have suffered some internal injury during the assault.

Babe, if you were pregnant and had a miscarriage, you MUST go to the doctor, okay? You can't be 100% certain either occurred, and there can be complications like an incomplete miscarriage that can have serious health risks.

Not to mention, this means you've foregone an STI screening, which is much more a risk to your reproductive health than a pregnancy.

What can we do for you to help you get the medical attention you need? Why haven't you gone?
