A Sexual Assault Forensic Exam (SAFE) may be offered to you, and it is your decision to have one. Your healthcare provider can give you more information about the procedure as well as arrange for an exam to be completed with your consent. It is also possible to have evidence collected and stored anonymously though a Restricted Report. It is also important to know that you can consent to the exam and still refuse specific procedures.
