Can doctors find out about a previous abortion?

Q: If a woman undergoes abortion and takes proper post-abortion care. Her periods also start back as normal. Can any medical practitioner find out about the pregnancy and abortion?

A:The cervix changes somewhat after an abortion. The hymen is also not in-tact after intercourse and abortion. So yes, a physician can find out if he/she does a pelvic exam. Physicians also have an ethical duty to not divulge information to others without your permission.
