I am have not had a period since August, I just went to the doctor to have a pap smear and take a pregnancy test. I am still late, my pregnancy test came out negative, but could the doctor tell during my pap smear if I was pregnant?

I believe a mucus plug immediately plugs the opening to your uterus. So yes, I believe a doctor might be able to tell.

Your cervix takes on a blueish color as well, yes they can tell. I'm not sure when it takes effect though.


Julia - October 12th, 2005 1:43 PM

Yeah the cervix turns blue. For me about 5 weeks.


Sara t - October 12th, 2005 6:25 PM

no they cannt tell that way unless you have had no kids they can tell by the size of your urterus when I was 7 weeks preg my cervix was no different then it was before I was preg

sara t - October 18th, 2005 6:39 AM

You are wrong.

Samantha-
A doctor could DEFINATELY tell if you were pregnant during a pap smear because everything inside becomes much "softer" and "smoother", well that is what my doctor told me (I'm 3 1/2 months pregnant) so when he goes to inject his fingers he would definatley be able to tell, plus the cervix turns a bluish color. Periods can also be late due to stress, and s_xual intercourse. I am in the navy and I had a friend who did have her period for 4-5 months, and the doctor ended up putting her on birth control to get her period regular again. So talk to your doctor about that. Best of Luck!

YES they can tell!! All of the blood runs to your cervix when your preg and it turns blue purple, i thought i might of been having twins so she checked me and said she thought only one was in there...and she was right, but they can tell...


Amy - October 18th, 2005 1:27 PM

I would think they might be able to tell. Especially if you told the dr that you might be pregnant (if you did). When I was pg before and went in, they did an internal exam and were able to tell that my cervix was larger at about 6 weeks. I also think that it is softer and closed when you are pregnant, but I am not 100% on that one. It couldn't hurt to call and ask if you'd like. All they can say is no! I hope you get the answers you are looking for! God bless.


Amy - October 18th, 2005 1:29 PM

Oops meant uterus was larger...my fingers think faster than my brain when I type!


sara t - October 18th, 2005 5:39 PM

if you say so


TO SARA - October 18th, 2005 8:56 PM

you are wrong lady,a doctor can tell if your pregnant by doing an exam.your cervix which is the opening of the uterus begins to soften and honey yes when a doctor dose a pap they will know if the cervix is getting softer.because changes in the cervix and size of the uterus help the doctor determine how long you"ve been pregnant.within the first 6 to8wks the cervix becomes bluish-tinged and softens.so sara before you open your mouth about something you know nothing about get the facts straight.


Samantha - October 19th, 2005 11:50 AM

Why not just ask the doctor to give you a simple pregnancy test when you're there??? I had it done in 5 minutes on a routine pap.


sara - October 19th, 2005 5:45 PM

well fopr your imfo I say this because everyone is different and when i was well am now my cervex was low and not soft at 7 weeks and when I went for a phy last year they thought maybe I was 5 weeks cause of the way i felt my doc even said to me its not a good way to tell as your body gives off different signs he said a real doc will never judge but the way it looks and feels and they will know that its false aqusations to say you are .just like I had my peroid for the first 3 months they only true way is a blood test with an u/s so read up my dear nothing is for sure


Erm - October 19th, 2005 5:58 PM

Samantha did not ask if a pap smear will tell you 100%. She simply asked if you can tell you are pregnant during a pap smear, to which you can. Maybe YOU need to read up my dear.
