can a pelvic exam determine a pregnancy?
i had a pelvic exam a few days ago... if i got pregnant in november the doctor would definetly be able to see it right? if i got pregnant this month and i just got the exam a few days ago would you be able to see the pregnancy in the exam this early? my question is basically... how far along would you have to be for your doctor to be able to notice you are pregnant during a pelvic exam?

I think 8 weeks - When I had my first the doctor said that it felt like I was 8 weeks along... but I don't think the confirm pregnancy through an exam - it is a blood test and ultrasound.

Not neccessarily... if they were not looking for it.. At that point they could have done the urine test in the office and confirmed it.. did you take a hpt?

no i didn't take one, i was wondering why they didn't do a urine test. i didnt ask for one or mention anything about being pregnant. i thought about it after i left the office. ( i over anaylze and think to much! )
i was in the er for a uti in december and its procedure to do a pregnancy test there so im pretty sure i had one because i had mentioned that my period was late. They didnt mention it when my urine came back positive for uti and i ended up getting my period a few days later anyway. i was just wondering if the exam would have detected a pregnancy.. ur information was helpful. thank u!
