Can a doctor find out whether a woman's a virgin or not? What are the tests if any available?

In brief: 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.

In brief: None really

If you define a virgin as one who has never had partner sex, there is little a doctor can or would do to prove that assumption.
Some societies place value on an intact hymen, but a girl can be born without one or have lost it in childhood through non sexual means.There are also partner sex acts that preserve the hymen.A STD would imply partner sex, but in most situations I just ask.
