Question: pelvic exam


 starkaren85 - Mon Apr 23, 2007 4:14 pm

When can a doctor tell your pregnant by doing a pelvic exam? Do you have to have been pregnant for a certain amount of time?

User avatar Often cervical softening that occurs with pregnancy can be detected during a pelvic exam at 5 to 6 weeks from the last period. A blood test can determine pregnancy sooner than that - about 3 weeks after the last period.
