Sexpert Q&A: Can My Gyno Tell?

Dear Yvonne, My boyfriend and I started engaging in both types of intercourse and it's pleasurable, but I'm wondering if my gynecologist will know I'm having either when she does my exam? -B

Dear B, Unless your gynecologist notices bruises on your pelvic region or tears in your vaginal or anal lining, usually he or she will not be able to tell that you've been sexually active. When males or females visit with a physician for an examination, the more honest and forthcoming they are about their sexual behaviors, the easier it will be for the physician to provide any needed medical help.
