Can A Doctor Tell If You Have Had An Abortion
14 week surgical Abortion vs miscarriage. Does the womb look the same a day later or will a doctor be able to tell it was an abortion if he scanned me?
Experienced Dr Knows: Surgical abortion (or miscarriage) has stretching of the the cervix, the lowest part of the uterus, to remove the fetus. That stretching leaves bruising, tiny (less than 1/8" long) tears, bleeding, and even clots or tissue. An OB/GYN will definitely know SOMETHING went on with your cervix. If you are trying to hide your abortion from your doctor, ask yourself why. Your doctor needs to know.
Can a doctor tell or find out if you have had an abortion. Plz suggest mam. I was aborted when I was 22 and now im gonna marry a doc. Will he find it?
He will find: Out if you tell him. Otherwise, there is no way for him to know. Are you sure you don't want to be honest about it with your future husband?See 1 more doctor answer
No: An abortion, especially in the first trimester leaves no tell-tale signs. No one can tell if you have had an abortion.
Open communication: It is important for the patient-doctor relationship to have open communication and honesty. When an obgyn asked about pregnancy history it is for a very good reason. That is the way we (obs) know if you are at higher risk for any conditions, offer different screening exams, etc. Keeping information from your provider may compromise your own care. Have an open discussion. It's all confidential.
Yes and no: They can tell you had it.....difficult to say how many times.See 1 more doctor answer
Tell doctor.: You should always tell your doctors everything about your medical history. Not everything will be readily apparent.
I had an abortion almost 3 years ago with surical process. Now I repair my hymen. Can a doctor tell that I was peragnent or had an abortion.
Why do you ask?: To reveal to anyone else that you had been pregnant, against your wishes, would in the US be a grave violation of a physician's code of ethics. If you are in an country where a physician may be asked to "certify your virginity", you have my profound sympathy, and I hope that your question alerts my peers in the US to wrongs done to women in such places. I hope things work for you.See 1 more doctor answer
Polar opposites: Those who oppose abortion are offended and upset by abortions. Those who have sympathy for the woman and do not have moral proscriptions against this procedure, can be sympathetic and are unaffected. Most in this category do not advocate abortion but consider it a personal choice.
If you tell us: Is usually the only way. If you had an abortion with complications or have had multiple abortions there may be clues; otherwise, we only know what you tell us.
Do I have to tell my doctor I had an abortion? He was judgmental in last appt have to cancel next since im no longer pregnate..
Great Question: Nope. Not at all. It is none of his business. And please use this opportunity to find a physician you can feel comfortable with; one that treats you as a partner in your health care and one that you feel you could tell everything to. Primary care medicine is about building a lasting relationship that survives years.See 1 more doctor answer
I told my ob that I had an induced abortion. Are doctors allowed to tell it to my healthcare insurance? She did. And I felt humiliated.
Unfortunately yes: Doctors are obliged to document all pertinent medical history in your chart, because it's relevant. Unfortunately Insurance companies have the right to have access to your chart whenever they want. So Doctors do not have choice, unless you sign a letter with your Doctors office telling not to give any information to your Insurance and you are legally responsible for the consequences.
Hi doctor, I drank an abortion pill, and started to bleed, I did another test afterwards and it still shows positive, please tell me why?
Half-life of HCG: After an abortion, the HCG levels start to fall. The half-life of HCG is 24-36 hours, so every 24-36 hours the level of HCG in your blood drops by 50%. Pregnancy tests vary in sensitivity to hcg, ranging from 10-100 miu/ml and the level of HCG also varies in pregnancy-e.g., 5 week pregnancy HCG could be 2500-6500. Thus, it may take a few weeks for the pregnancy test to become negative.

Will my doctor know if I had a surgical abortion? I don't want him to know because he will tell my parents.
He can't: He can't tell your patents. You are an adult and HIPPA privacy laws prevent him from sharing your medical information with anyone, including your parents, without your written permission.See 2 more doctor answers
