Q: I think my daughter may be having sex even though she says she's not. If I take her for a gynecological exam, can the doctor tell me if she's still a virgin?A: It would be very difficult for any physician to answer your question based on a physical exam. Presumably, you are wondering whether her hymen is intact as a sign of virginity. However, there is considerable variation in the anatomy of the hymen during adolescence, making it an unreliable indicator of virginity.Your question raises important points about your relationship with your daughter.

ATLANTA -- The sexual revolution, thought dead in the age of AIDS, is apparently alive and thriving among a new generation of teen-age girls.While the fear of AIDS has led to a decline in promiscuity among women over age 20, a study released yesterday found that more girls than ever before are having premarital sex in their mid- to late teens."

Catherine Holmes' route home in Davidsonville takes her on a quarter-mile walk in the woods, over a fallen tree, through a shallow stream and along a swaying cable bridge to reach her log-sided cabin. Then she climbs through a window to get in. Holmes locks both doors from the inside when she leaves because she's worried about what might happen in her absence. And she seldom leaves. The 54-year-old nudist is in a legal dispute with her landlord, a nudist club called the Maryland Health Society Inc., which has ordered her off the property.

Teens who have sexually active friends face a significantly higher risk of smoking, drinking and using drugs than do other youths, according to an annual Columbia University teen substance-abuse survey released yesterday. The survey found that youths 12 to 17 years old who said half or more of their friends were sexually active were found to be 31 times as likely to get drunk, 22 times as likely to try marijuana and more than five times as likely to smoke cigarettes. Advocates for liberalizing U.S. drug laws accused the writers of the report - which showed no causal connection between sexual activity and drug or alcohol use - of sensationalizing typical teenage behavior to make a stronger case against the use of marijuana and other drugs.

"WE TAUGHT them what to do in the front seat; now it's time to teach them what to do in the back seat." -- Dr. Joycelyn `D Elders.Dr. Elders, the surgeon general designate, believes this approach would reduce the number of out-of-wedlock pregnancies and slow the spread of AIDS.It's a good idea. I like the linkage. But it should go a step further. I propose that the General Assembly amend the Annotated Code of Maryland (changes in italics):Sec. 16-101. An individual may not drive or attempt to drive a motor vehicle on any State highway unless holding a driver's license and may not have sex or attempt to have sex unless holding a sexual activity license.

I have to disagree as both a physician and father with Dr. Margaret Moon's opinion lambasting the ruling by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that prohibits young teens from acquiring the Plan B pill without a prescription. From a physician's point of view, the article intersperses all kinds of consequences from unprotected sexual activity, including HIV infection, with the discussion on Plan B. Plan B does absolutely nothing for the dangers of unprotected sex, and, in fact, I would worry that taking away the fear of pregnancy from young teens may actually encourage more sexual activity - some of which will be unprotected - and potentially increases the incidence of sexually transmitted infections.

A Severn man, who police say pretended to be a teenager online and solicited boys in their early teens for sex, was charged with multiple sex offenses Wednesday, according to a statement by Baltimore County police. Brandon Henry Sukeforth, 22, was arrested last week after a woman discovered her 14-year-old son had been a party to suspicious messages and phone calls that prompted her to contact police, the statement said. The messages and calls made the mother suspect her son was having sex with an adult man, police said.

WASHINGTON - Dr. Steven Galson, acting director of the Food and Drug Administration's center for drug evaluation and research, said yesterday that politics played no role in his decision to require a doctor's prescription for the "morning-after" birth control pill. Galson said he rejected his staff's recommendation for over-the-counter sales - as well as an advisory panel's 24-3 vote favoring nonprescription availability - out of concern that not enough was known about the possible effects of the pills on adolescent girls' sexual activity.

My family and I spent a great evening in Baltimore at the Orioles game last Saturday. Even though we live in Wilmington, De., we make it to Camden Yards a dozen times a year. Our family are long time Orioles fans, and we look forward to spending time in both Maryland and Baltimore. After the Orioles lost to Toronto on Saturday, we took our usual good time leaving the park. One of our stops is to check out the merchandise at the stands located on Pratt Street after the game. As we walked towards the souvenir stands, our nine-year-old son said, "What is that?"
