Hi--the simple answer is no, he won't. Only right after sex with semen still in the vagina would an exam suggest that a woman had had recent sex
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have not had sex, which he knows because I have told him.... But I have been sexually assaulted with objects being put in to my vagina by someone :/
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Any pain or bleeding down there?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Not especially
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Then, no, he won't be able to tell. Only if you had bruising and lacerations in and around the vagina would there be a suggestion that something had been used there
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
So will he think I am a Virgin then?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Yes, Louise he will
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
But I thought if my hymen was gone he would know?!
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Just the absence of the hymen doesn't mean a woman isn't a virgin Louise. You really shouldn't worry here
