    My friend is 17 and her boyfriend is 22, she is going to the Gynecologist soon and she has been sleeping with her boyfriend without her mothers knowledge. She is worried about her boyfriend getting into trouble because they are having sex, because someone told her Gynecologists can tell when the last time you had sex was based on doing a vaginal exam.

    Take the Poll

    Can a gynecologist really tell how long it has been since the last time you have had sex if it has only been within a week or two?
    • Yes
    • No
    • Not sure
    • Depends on how long it has been

    Hello, Gynecologists can tell when someone isn't a virgin because the Hymen will be broke but I don't think they can tell WHEN someone last had sex.

    Please tell your friend to be careful and use protection.
    If you suffer with Vulva and or Vagina pain, please join my community called VULVA AND VAGINA PAIN SUPPORT GROUP. No woman should suffer in silence.

    Just because the hymen is broke doesn't mean the female isn't a virgin. Many girls tear their hymen doing excercises such as gymnastics or horseback riding.
