This is because the woman will start to feel a new sensation, which is pregnancy-related. This feeling will vary depending on the stage of pregnancy. Doctors can easily distinguish between the sensation of a healthy abdomen from that of a pregnant abdomen by touching the woman’s stomach. They also use other diagnostic methods like abdominal ultrasound or x-ray images to determine if she is pregnant or not. — Some doctors use physical examination to determine whether their patient is pregnant or not. The doctor’s two fingers can be inserted into the vagina to feel the size and shape of the uterus and how it moves. There are also other non-invasive ways that a doctor can use to identify whether someone is pregnant, which include physical examination or using a home pregnancy test kit. A doctor will examine you by first inserting two fingers into your vagina to feel for changes in your cervix, then feeling for the size and shape of your uterus, and finally checking how it moves when they insert their hand inside your vagina.1Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp Mia 2021-08-03T15:44:30+05:30Added an answer on August 3, 2021 at 3:44 pm There are many ways that doctors can determine whether a woman is pregnant. The one technique that is most common with older patients is the “palpation” technique, which involves doctors touching a patient’s stomach and abdomen.Doctors used to feel small bumps on the abdomen of pregnant women, but now they can use an ultrasound to view the gestational sac. Palpation still provides information about gestational age and other parameters not visible on ultrasounds.Doctors may also scan for fetal heart activity or perform an ultrasound for non-invasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD).1Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Add a Video to describe the problem better.
