Can my doctor tell if I've had an abortion, an STD or a miscarriage?

Not unless you have excessive scarring as a result (and that's
unusual). Since these things can affect your mental and physical
health, however, it's important to let your doctor know about all your
past medical problems and procedures, says Dr. Lauri Romanzi, a
urogynecologist at Cornell University-New York Presbyterian Hospital.

"If you come in with an infertility problem or pelvic pain -- either
of which can be related to miscarriage, an STD or complications from
an abortion -- your doctor will be better able to diagnose and treat
you if she knows about your health history," Dr. Romanzi says. If
you're concerned about confidentiality, ask your doctor not to write
out this information explicitly in your medical records.,,417906,00.html
