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. ...Read more

I had an abortion like 4weeks ago. If I go for an ultrasound in August, will the doctors know I had an abortion?

Probably not: Unless you tell them, but there are situations in which it might be pertinent for the doc to know that history. The doctor-patient relationship is confidential, and the "contract" with your doctor implies a duty of honesty from both parties. Find a doctor you are comfortable discussing these issues with. ...Read more

Six years ago I had an abortion. I'am 24 years old that time. Is there possibility to detect or the doctor will know about it? Thank you!

Unlikely: It is unlikely to detect a previous abortion unless instrumentation was used and even then it is still unlikely. You may want to consider telling your doctor, however. There is patient-doctor confidentiality which prevents them from sharing your information without your permission. Plus, information kept from your doctor can only hinder your care. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
