    After a sexual assault, it is important to get checked for possible injuries and/or pregnancy and get treated for sexually-transmitted infections regardless of how long it has been since the assault. Victims can seek medical help at any time. However, the days immediately after the assault are the only time DNA evidence of the assault can be collected. It is also the only time any substances (sometimes called date-rape drugs) can be detected.
