I'm planning to go to the gyn but I'm afraid because I'm not a virgin and my mom doesn't know that and I'm not planning to tell her. I know there is no real way of telling whether I'm a virgin or not but I wanted to know whether my mom is allowed into the examining room. If she isn't I would be so much relieved, but I just dont want to have to go and not be able to tell the doctor everything because my mom is present.

If you feel more comfortable without your mother in the examining room, it is your right not to have her there. The patient is in control - it's your decision who you want in the examining room with you.
