Want to know whether pelvic is screen for virginty?

Pelvic examination: Can reveal an intact or a ruptured hymen. There is great variability from one hymen to an other, some can be quite thick or fenestrated and require a gynecologic procedure to open it up. Others might simply be a simple circumferential rim of tissue which could remain unruptured in spite of vaginal penetration. Thus pelvic exam can not always determine whether a woman is a virgin or not. ...Read more

How would you know if chlamydia spread further than cervix? Any test to detect? How to screen for PID?

No test for PID: Have you been tested and know you have chlamydia? It's uncommon at your age, i.e. beyond age 25 or so, even in sexually active people who might be at risk. Some but not all spreading infections cause symptoms of PID (fever, pelvic pain), but not always. There is no lab test for PID -- just symptoms and professional pelvic exam. If positive test or known exposure, be sure you get properly treated. ...Read more

US is enough: An early dating scan in the first trimester of pregnancy is quite accurate for determining how far along someone is in her pregnancy.

Is there any way of finding out if someone has had chlamydia for long enough to not be able to get pregnant anymore? If so, how?

Is there any way of finding out if someone has had chlamydia for long enough to not be able to get pregnant anymore? If so, how?

Hysterosalpingogram: The concern with chlamydia is that the infection can scar the fallopian tubes, making it impossible for the egg and sperm to meet. Risk of a tubal pregnancy is increased. To check if the tubes are open or scarred, the test we do is called a hysterosalpingogram. Dye is injected through the cervix and the shape of the tubes and spillage of dye is noted. ...Read more

What is the reason doctors ask if a girl is sexually active? I don't want to ask my mom to leave bc then she will know, but i don't want to lie to doc

What is the reason doctors ask if a girl is sexually active? I don't want to ask my mom to leave bc then she will know, but i don't want to lie to doc

Females and Doctors: First, I do not know your age so that limits what i can give you as far as advice. But, you should ask to see the doctor from the start without your mother. If you cannot do this then you may consider going on your own to planned parenthood for your care. The doctor is asking this question to know if you need a pap smear and if you need (which you do) the hpv or gardisil vaccine. ...Read more

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read more

What is the procedure for getting a prostate exam? What type of insurance coverage would i need? Do they put you to sleep to do the exam? I am afraid.

What is the procedure for getting a prostate exam? What type of insurance coverage would i need? Do they put you to sleep to do the exam? I am afraid.

Simple: Go to your doctor and the initial exam is a rectal exam to feel the prostate, if needed a blood test can be done as part of your insurance, and if there's anything abnormal a referral to the specialist can then be made. These should all be part of your care under your insurance minus the deductibles and copays. ...Read more

What does a doc check if they want to determine if a woman is a virgin or not?Or what exams does he conduct to find out?

What does a doc check if they want to determine if a woman is a virgin or not?Or what exams does he conduct to find out?

The doctor looks...: The doctor looks at her face and says, "have you had sex before?" if she answers, "sort of" or "yes", then she is not a virgin. If she answers, "no", then she is a virgin. Unless there is a criminal case involved, it does not matter if she is a virgin or not. In general, there is no issue except that the doctor can do valuable counseling and screen for std infections, if the patient is having sex. ...Read more
