Is a simple HIV antibody blood test enough for virgins not involved in drugs n blood transfusion to confirm absence of hiv? Not had any sex untill now.
See below: If you have not had sex, have not injected drugs, have not received blood transfusions, and have not been injected with any thing by some one other than a doctor, you do not need an HIV test. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Confusing question: You mention a pap smear and then talk about virginity. The need to do surveillance for cervical cancer does not stop if you are not sexually active. Some triggers of this problem are related to sex, but not all. The procedure can be done with minimal intrusion in a modified pelvic exam, but it should not be avoided due to your status. Newer technology can also supplement the exam. ...Read more
My sis 24old has peutz-jeghers syndrome, she has to do pep-test but she is virgin, is there other way to check the cervix? Blood or urine test? Or MRI?
Pap options: Your sister is at VERY low risk for cervical disease, but PJ syndrome can have other neoplastic manifestations in the ovaries and bowel, so if the intent is to screen for those, then US, colonoscopy and other approaches are available. But pelvic exam is the low cost way to screen for ovarian enlargement. ...Read more
Depends: In medicine we take things with a grain of salt. I would test for hep c, hiv, syphyllis, gonorrhea, herpes, rubella, cmv, the entire spectrum. You need to know what may affect your children. Some states require a minimal panel of tests before issuing a marriage license. Check with your states department of or licenses to see the minimum requirements fr you. ...Read more
Check intact hymen: There is no such thing as virginity test, however, an intact hymen is generally accepted as evidence for virginity. In fact, some girls and women have a large enough hymenal opening for the hymen to remain intact in spite of having had vaginal intercourse. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Virginity & Medicine: A physician, if asked at the time of the exam can look for the hymen when the pelvic is happening. But, most physicians would not even be worrying necessarily if someone was a virgin. Physician's often operate with the knowledge that sexual activity is a common part of the human experience. There should be no judgment. A physician is also very well equipped to give you medical answers when asked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can not having right angle during sex hurt? He is a virgin I don't hurt smear test or anything. He instead is putting pressure I think
Sexual positions: Can be delightful and fun...pain should not play a rule. Remember- outercourse is just as important as intercourse and you BOTH should be wet and lubricated. Spending 15-20 minutes on foreplay and change positions so that both partners are smiling. I am not sure what you mean by right angle- please clarify. ...Read more
Yes, just one: The one test to prove if a person is a virgin or not is the oldest test of all. You ask the person. That's what we physicians do. We ask our patients. (by the way, are there any non-medical reasons to know this type of information?). ...Read more
Virginity: Nope. There is no real and valid test for virginity. The old fashioned examination of the hymen is just outdated to most of the world. We also have no test for virginity for men and I would bet that every doctor here on health tap would agree that if virginity is important it has to be equally important for the man as it is for the female to be a 'virgin'. Inequality in the sexes has to end. ...Read more
Is there any medical test to prove that I have NT had sex? My hymen is not intact due to fingering so my bf doubts on me that I m NT virgin n had sex
No test...: There is no test to prove it (or disprove it), nor is an intact hymen any indication of having or not having sex. Having an intact hymen is a very unfortunate myth that has caused many girls to be accused of having had sex and harmed or even killed because of it. Relationships should really be based on trust, so I hope that you can find someone who will trust that what you are saying is true. ...Read more
Pap at 21yo: It's a great thing to start thinking about your female health, but we actually have not been recommending pap smears unless you're older than 21. When you turn 21 though, a pap smear is a private and safe procedure. It's just taking a quick look at your cervix and a gentle swab. You'll feel a little pressure, but no pinching/poking. No one checks for virginity. Should be confidential. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
