Prize for the most honest post of the year.

Cant see the dr raising the issue, unless your actually having sex in his waiting room how does he now you didnt do the deed outside the UAE, say, back in India for example?

If someone is vindictive, how it happened or when it happened wont matter.

What will matter is he will put himself on a hypocritical pedestal and say "he/she did ABC, which is against the law, i dont care about anything else"

However most doctors are not like that.

Sorry, but think you being a bit OTT here. Let me get this straight you saying that every single woman who is not a virgin and goes for a gynaecological examination should be afraid it case a 'vindictive' Dr rats on her? Would of thought any Dr that did that would soon find them selves patientless.

A lot of unmarried people in Dubai have sex. Unless you are pregnant and unmarried, a doctor will not report you for having sex out of wedlock.

What you do need to worry about though is this:
1. Have you been having unprotected sex with multiple partners because you could've spread the infection? So it's probably a good idea to give them a call and let them know so they do not in turn spread it further.
2. Have you continued to have sex in spite of this infection, even if it's with the same person? If yes, maybe you should stop for a little while till you don't have the infection anymore.

Are you sure it's a vaginal infection and not just a UTI?

Good luck!

I am not being OTT; and I did say most doctors are not like that.

Howevr, if a mother, and new born baby in its most vulnerable state, can be sent to prison after being reported by a "doctor" for not having a piece of paper, then it pays to be cautious,...

I believe doctors are required to report any cases of unmarried pregnancies in the country as it is against the law. I don't think they are allowed to even deliver the baby or they might lose their licence (not sure about this though).

They however do not need to question if a patient is married or not when that patient comes in with a vaginal infection or any other kind of infection.
