If you are not sure whether you want to report to the police or not yet, you can go along to Northamptonshire’s SARC (Serenity) It's good to take a friend or trusted person with you if you can. 
 
At the SARC, you can have a forensic medical examination, The SARC will not pressure you into reporting to the police and they can store the results of the forensic examination (or evidence) until you make up your mind whether to report to the police or not. SARCs have specially trained experienced professionals who can give you medical help and advice. They can also help and support you through the immediate trauma.
