I am not a virgin...If I go to a gynecologist to diganose my problem..Will it b known to her dat I am not virgin?

I am not a virgin...If I go to a gynecologist to diganose my problem..Will it b known to her dat I am not virgin?

Of course! But ...: The doctor will know a patient is not a virgin the minute the patient tells the doctor! of course, if the patient doesn't tell the doctor, the doctor won't know, and will have to ask the patient, or will have to guess. On the other hand, the virginity thing is highly over-rated, and not very important except in issues of pregnancy, std's, psychological symptoms, and unfortunately, sexual assaults. ...Read more

What to expect when going to gynecologist?

What to expect when going to gynecologist?

Depends: What happens at a Gyn visit depends on how old you are and why you are going. Most Gyns won't do a pap until age 21 and STD testing can often be done using urine. If you do need an exam, a nurse will be present. Its usually very quick and allows your Gyn to swab the cervix and vagina for certain tests. If it is your first visit, most docs will show you what they are going to do. Best wishes! ...Read more
