A 29-year-old woman has complained to the police and health authorities that she was raped by a doctor at a private clinic in Binh Duong Province.
The woman, who wanted to be identified only as N, said she went to Hoan Hao 4 clinic in Thuan An town for having an IUD inserted Monday morning.
The procedure was done by a 32-year-old male doctor, identified only as L.
In the afternoon N returned to the clinic complaining of pain.
She said: “In the beginning he was sitting and examining me. Then he stood up and asked me to move further down the bed end where he was standing.
“It was so painful that I thought he was putting his finger into [me]. When he oddly kept asking me about my sex life, I raised my head to discover that he had put his ‘object’ into me.”
She said she kicked the doctor before running out shouting for help, clothes in hand.
She reported to a clinic employee and left.

Her husband later took her back to the clinic and attacked the doctor before being stopped by security guards.
On Tuesday Nguyen The Vuong, director of the clinic, said he would dismiss L if N’s accusations are true.
“It was against the clinic’s regulations for L to have had the patient in the room for examination while there was no nurse.”
Besides, it is wrong for a doctor to ask patients irrelevant questions about their sex life for the purpose of inserting an IUD.
On Wednesday Vuong said the police have begun an investigation into the case.
