User :   21 jan 2009
Doctor :   Are you sure she had sex with someone else last night?
User :   ya 100 %
Doctor :   Then if you did not have intercourse with her in last 72 hours then a vaginal swab test can be done to look for semen inside
Doctor :   It is a special test done to detect semen in vagina by taking a deep vaginal swab
User :   if more than 72 hours then
Doctor :   If semen is found inside that she had intercourse in last 48 hours
Doctor :   If you had intercourse with her more than 72 hours before then it will be clear and it will suggest that she had intercourse with someone else.
Doctor :   Have you followed what i have said?
User :   yes
User :   so after 72 hors i can not do anything
User :   in 2 or three days she will be doing m.c
Doctor :   No usually vagina gets cleaned itself with its own secretions in 48 hours so if more than 48 hours have passed then you cannot get it confirmed.
User :   sorry M.C
User :   ANY DNA TEST
User :   AS SPERM HAS FALLEN OUTSIDE WHEN I WAS DOING
Doctor :   It does not matter if test is done before her periods you can still get confirmed results(If test is done within 48 hours of incidence)
User :   SO WHAT NEXT
Doctor :   DNA test is done on the baby to confirm about paternity and cannot be done on mother
Doctor :   When did you have intercourse with her?
User :   BUT SPERM AND WHEN PENIS WAS INSERTED IT WILL LEAVE SOMETHING INSIDE
User :   2 DAYS BEFORE
Doctor :   Please explain what you want to ask? Your question is not clear
User :   I WANT TO KNOW THAT SO NO ANY TEST AFTER 48 HOURS WILL HELP ME ARE U SURE ? PLEASE DONT MIND

User :   WHAT IS THE COST OF THAT TEST
Doctor :   If you have had intercourse with her in last 48 hours and she again had intercourse with someone else you cannot make it out
User :   WHERE IS THAT TEST AVAILABLE IN XXX
Doctor :   In case this is what has happened that your ejaculated semen was present in her vagina next day also so do not suspect unnecessary

User :   ONE MORE THING SHE IS HAVING PERIOD 2 TIMES IN A MONTH
User :   WHAT IS THE REASON
Doctor :   Since when is she having the periods twice?
User :   LAST 5 MONTHS
User :   IS THIS DUE TO COPPER T
Doctor :   It can be due to hormonal imbalance which is caused by inserting Copper T which leads to this. Also there may be some other causes as Cysts, Fibroid(Tumour), Thyroid disorder.
Doctor :   She can get a USG scan and hormonal levels checked to confirm the same.
User :   OK

User :   BECAUSE SHE SOMETIMES FEEL LOTS OF PAIN
Doctor :   Yes you can
Doctor :   Does she have pain during intercourse?
User :   YES
Doctor :   Is the pain always present or is present after Insertion of Copper T?
User :   PRIVIOUSLY IT WAS LESS NOW IT GO ON INCREASING
