Can a doctor tell if you've had an abortion

I had an abortion and I had abdominal pain before the pregnancy sometime it pains very badly, My doctor is suggesting to do a CT scan now. I had an abortion a two months ago and it was successful, I had a normal abortion and it was 8 weeks along. My mother is going with me to my first exam. I don't want her to know. Can a doctor tell if I've had an abortion or been pregnant before by CT SCAN?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No way a CT scan tell you your previous pregnancy or abortion incidences.There is no need to worry at all.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
