My doctor wants to do a enternal vaginal exam on my 12 year old daughter first of all is this normal? Either way what can I tell her to expect them to

Yes, for all kids: A primary care doctor (pediatrician, family practice, etc.) does a whole body external exam (including anus, vagina, ear, nose, etc.) during check-ups. That is the best way a doctor can see if a person is normal or not. We look INTERNALLY in the ears and mouth, usually into the nose, but normally not into the anus or vagina during check-ups. Parents can remind kids that exams are good and helpful. ...Read more

Can the gyn doctor see if you have any STDs from looking at your vaginal area when he does the pelvic exam?

Can the gyn doctor see if you have any STDs from looking at your vaginal area when he does the pelvic exam?

Sometimes: There are some std's that cause vaginal discharge that can be quite distinctive on examination but usually you need confirmatory tests by looking under a microscope or doing a lab test to be sure. Some std's dont have any signs or symptoms in girls and the only way to diagnose them is to do a routine screen. For example gonorrhea and chlamydia are tested routinely in girls under 25 due to risks. ...Read more

See an Endocrinologi: It is not difficult to make a diagnosis of adrenal cancer if you have sign and symptoms of this condition. All it takes is a ct scan of the abdomen which can/should be done if there is definite suspicion based on steroid excess(cushing;s syndrome like features). But you should first go see an internist or an endocrinologist to help you address this issue. ...Read more
