How does ASU Health Services serve ASU community members?
Victims and survivors of violence may wish to have their injuries treated and be checked for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy following the experience. Testing for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy, if applicable, should be done about two weeks following the assault. ASU Health Services does not offer medical forensic exams, these can only be accessed at a Family Advocacy Center through the HonorHealth Forensic Nursing Program. You are not required to disclose your experience of violence in order to access services and are welcome to receive care through ASU Health Services without disclosing. If you choose to disclose, ASU Health Services is a confidential resource.
What to expect when connecting with ASU Health Services
You can schedule an appointment through ASU Health Services by calling them directly or through the ASU Health Services Patient Portal. You do not need an appointment and they encourage anyone who has experienced a sexual assault to seek medical treatment at health services as soon as possible. Prior to your visit, you will complete some background medical information such as your personal and family medical history, allergies, current medications and more. During your visit, a physician will ask you about the reasons for your visit and what medical concerns you have so that they can be appropriately addressed. ASU Health Services clinicians will continue to see survivors for ongoing care to ensure that their physical and emotional health care needs are met. In the weeks after an assault, some survivors can develop physical and emotional symptoms, such as pain in the muscles, joints, pelvis and/or abdomen, lack of appetite, difficulty sleeping, or nightmares. Some survivors may find it very difficult to resume their habits, lifestyles and sexual relationships. Ongoing health care can help improve an individual’s overall physical and psychological recovery.
As a reminder, you can access medical services without disclosing your experience of violence.
