I am around 4-5 weeks pregnant,I had a miscarriage at 4 weeks during my first pregnancy. So, my gynaecologist has aaked me take vageston 200mg twice a day for a month but I read online that is a class D drug during pregnancy. is it safe to take this medic
Yes, safe.: Vageston is a semi-synthetic hormone that--in theory--supports pregnancy in the early weeks prior to the full development of the placenta which then takes over the job of producing natural progesterone. It's perfectly safe but not always effective.There are many other factors that can cause early pregnancy loss that have nothing to do with insufficient progesterone.

Differences between men/women gynecologists. I've heard that women are less sensitive to thoughts/feelings. True?
Doctors Personality: I have heard these rumors myself over my career. But, of course the rumors or myths are not true. All kinds of physicians have all kinds of personalities. You should not choose your doctor on the basis of their gender. But, you choose someone who listens and answers your questions. ...Read more

I'm nervous about asking my questions because I have never been to a gynecologist before. What should I do?
Why do male gynecologists pretend they understand my pain? "you'll feel 'pressure'" "i know it hurts" what's the point in lying? It makes me angrier.

They aren't lying any more than a female gynecologist who's never had a baby can tell you it will hurt. They are trying to reassure and prepare you so you won't think something's wrong , or be surprised by a sudden discomfort. It's all in the service of helping. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but...: If the boyfriend waits in the waiting room, then there is no problem. If he is in the exam room, the woman will possibly be sharing all of her medical, sexual, and reproductive history with somone who may not be in a long term relationship with her, and could use this information against her in the future. This scenario is not recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
