Can a doctor tell if you are pregnant from incest without taking a paternity test?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Doctor can tell if you are pregnant. Depending on your last menstrual period, your probable date of conception can be calculated. If you have not had intercourse with anyone else at that time period, then the pregnancy could be attributed to have resulted from the incest/intercourse during that time.
If your periods are not regular and you have had sexual relation/intercourse with anyone else during your fertile period (period of egg release) other than the ‘incest’, then paternity test would be necessary to confirm.
Take care.
