Have you been exposed to HIV or other Sexual Diseases?

Some victims of rape or a sexual assualt are concerned that they may have been exposed to HIV or other Sexually transmitted diseases (STIs).

We are not medical doctors at Mpower so we are not able to discuss these matters with you but we consider that it is important that you seek medical assistance.

You can find lots of information on HIV and STIs from the Terrence Higgins Trust website (

Most towns have a sexual health clinic (sometimes called a GUM clinic) attached to the local NHS hospital. You may be examined and treated there free of charge and in confidence (and annonymously if you wish).

We strongly recommend that you get checked out at a specialist clinic if you think there is the possibility that you have been exposed to HIV or STIs during your attack.

Although we are not able to discuss medical issues with you, we are here for you if you want to talk through your concerns about the possibility of being exposed to sexually transmitted diseases.

No-one deserves to be raped.
No survivor deserves the blame.
