[Sexual abuse assessed by forensic examinations].
Ugeskr Laeger. 1997 Dec 29; 160(1):41-4.UL

Abstract

Within a period of three years, 175 women and three men, with a median age of 25 years, underwent a medico-legal examination after sexual assault. Penal penetration (vaginal, anal and/or oral) was the case in 78% of the victims, more often if the victim had been under the influence of alcohol, and if the assailant was known to the victim. Only 52% of the raped victims were recommended follow up with an examination for and counselling about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Among those referred to an STD clinic 48% attended. Denmark is the only Nordic country without public services for rape victims. A police report is therefore a prerequisite for a medico-legal examination.
