Lady in ED

A 30 y/o woman presents to the Emergency Department with a complaint of sexual assault by a co-worker in her office. She has no facial or body trauma, bruising or lacerations. She is withdrawn, crying and relates feeling very guilty about coming into the clinic but is afraid of getting pregnant. They had begun dating a week ago, but she never believed this man would become so aggressive.
