Would a woman ever falsely accuse somebody of rape? [View all]

I am being serious with this question...

Trying to put myself in said woman's shoes, after charging person a of rape, that person would be subjected to an invasive procedure on her vulva. If a woman's vulva experiences violent rape, usually there is some sign in terms of skin tearing, etc. If she was raped while unconscious, there might not be. Semen may or may not be present.

So by going through this procedure, which I assume is at least uncomfortable, she runs the risk of being charged with making a false accusation.

If she says she was raped while sleeping or otherwise incapacitated, and offers no evidence, then it becomes he said/she said and most likely won't go anywhere.

So I pose this question, not rhetorically but honestly seeking an answer.

Your thoughts?
