Evindence is required as per law , if u dont want it because of passage of long time period you can give so in writing justifying it by the written advice from Dr. Whether after 5-6 month medical will prove anything or not.

Madam, you ahould get yourself medically examined on behest of the police and for the cases under section 376 and 377 IPC no strong medical proof is required as the rape and unnatural intercourse are not medicolegal terms while they are legal terms so you should not be worried and getting medically examined will support your case.
