If the unwanted sexual encounter(s) occurred more than 5 days ago, SHW can still provide emotional support and counseling, as well as a medical evaluation and treatment.

- Counseling services to help you cope with emotional or physical symptoms following the encounter (sleep or appetite changes, difficulty concentrating, or problems with memory)
- Medical evaluation and treatment
- Screening for sexually transmitted infections
- Pregnancy testing
- Referral to support services, including free services at Sexual Assault Resources Center (SARA), The Shelter for Help in Emergency, and the UVA Women’s Center
