OB-GYN Montgomery County Dr. Rania Ibrahim understands that visiting the gynecologist can be a worrisome experience for many women because they’re scared to talk honestly and openly about their lifestyle.
But honesty is fundamental when it comes to diagnosing most conditions and providing the best treatment. And remember that your OB-GYN Montgomery County has seen and heard it all, so nothing you say can surprise her!
If you’re like most women, you’ve probably wondered what your OB-GYN can find out about you based solely on her examination. Dr. Rania Ibrahim provides some of her insights below.
Will she know if you’ve had sex recently or how many sexual partners you’ve had?
No. The vagina is stretchy and muscular, which allows it to stretch considerably and then return to its original form almost immediately.
Will she know if you’ve had an abortion?
If the abortion was done more than a month prior to your exam or performed with the use of medication, then it’s not likely. However, an experienced OB-GYN Montgomery County can determine if you’ve had a recent abortion that was performed surgically.
Can she diagnose a sexually transmitted disease?
While some sexually transmitted diseases may be noticeable, some of them may not have any obvious symptoms. Also, there may be more than one live infection present.
Can she determine if you’ve given birth?
Yes, because the opening of the cervix looks different after delivery, it’s easy to ascertain if a patient has had a child. It normally looks like a pinpoint, but after giving birth it looks more like a slit.
Can she determine why you get pregnant?
If the source of your infertility is an imbalance in your hormones, then yes. But fallopian tubes that are blocked cannot be identified with a simple examination; it will require further testing. And don’t forget that your partner needs to be examined and evaluated as well.
