False: Unless a woman has an imperforate hymen, (exceedingly rare) there is no exam that is going to tell a doctor whether a woman has had sex or not. This is a false diagnosis if it's given.

In virgin pregnancies where hymen is intact, does hymen breaks under the pressure of the baby, or it remains intact during the whole pregnancy?
Theoretical question: If or when such a pregnancy occurred, the hymen could remain intact until delivery.

The structure would prevent that exam and would need to be cut during labor to allow proper assessment of the progress of labor. ...Read more
