How about pregnancy test like in store. Buy one then, if it's negative try to consult the doctor after.

No, they cannot. Don't worry, to find out if you are pregnant they will have to give you a series of tests first (like x-rays or other unmentionable tests that I do not feel comfortable writing).

X-rays can kill pregnancy.

They don't x-ray to determine pregnancy. Although a number of test can determine this, a standard pee test is all that is usually ran.

First off doctors don't randomly do pregnancy tests at appointments. The only reason they would do one is if they think there may be a chance your pregnant.

No they can not, try setting up an appointment so they can see if you're pregnant.

Go to store and buy pregnancy test. Then you'll know if you have something to hide.

Depending on how far the pregnancy is; the uterus takes on a different feel when a woman is pregnant, someone trained on this (a Dr) can feel a woman's tummy and tell a lot. This is why the majority of prenatal check-ups are about the ob/gyn feeling the stomach area.

yes they can .... about 2 weeks ago i went to the Dr. after taking 2 pregnancy kit test both were saying positive anyway so when i got there he inspected my stomach area and he told me i was about 5-6 weeks well of course it was a surprise for me since i had assume that i was about 4 weeks ..... i asked him what do you check for in that area and he said it is to feel the thickness of the uterus and to feel how far your pelvic bone expanded
