Nicotine Testing Second Hand Smoke

The Female exam is nothing bur the pelvic examination that is recommended for all sexually active women or women above the age of 21 years. You can easily find a good female exam video on video sharing sites that will help you understand the procedure better.

If this is your first medical examination, you must remember not to panic. It might also look like a tedious and painful agenda but this is not true. The exam is completed in only few minutes and you may expect nothing more than slight discomfort. The patient will not be administered any medication like anesthesia during this procedure.

As seen in any female exam video, the woman will be asked to lie down on a table in the examination room. The patient will then be asked to bend her knees and rest her feet on stirrups on the end of the table. These are most likely triangular metal loop-like structures that project out from the surface on which the patient is lying down. This helps in obtaining a comfortable position for the examiner as well as the examinee to carry on with the test.

The test is dived into two parts: the external and the internal examination. The first part is only about 'viewing' the pelvic region. Your healthcare expert will wear gloves and externally examine the regions of your pelvis, vagina and possibly even the anal regions. The thought of this may make you a little uncomfortable, but you must understand that this is only a medical procedure and must not be taken personally. If you feel better with a female nurse beside you, then you can ask for the presence of one. Alternatively, you have the right to ask for your friend, partner or mother to be around during your examination.

The second part of the pelvic exam includes examining the internal parts of your pelvis. If you are watching a female exam video, you will see the medical practitioner insert a thin, slender plastic or metal instrument into the vagina of the woman. This called the speculum. The presence of special muscles around the vagina allows contraction and expansion in the area; which is why the patient will not feel pain during the inspection with the instrument. Following this, the physician will wear gloves and insert one or two fingers into your vagina to inspect the condition of the uterus and ovaries which are much inside the body. With the free hand, the expert will slightly press the abdomen to comprehend the health of the organs.

The results of a routine check-up are often normal. However, if irregular discharge, odor, polyps or other such anomalies are seen, they can be acted upon and treated. You can comfortably interact with online doctors and clear discuss you apprehensions. With the plenty of resources available online, you can prepare well for your pelvic examination.

  1. How long should I quit smoking to pass a nicotine urinalysis?
    I’ve been an on-and-off, primarily social smoker for four years. (At my worst I smoke 1/2 pack in one day). My parents are renewing a life insurance policy they have on me and I have a blood and urine test next Monday. I don’t do any illegal drugs but I believe they’re testing for nicotine too. I had a few cigs at the bar last night and threw the rest out. If I don’t smoke before Monday, will I be all right? Any detox tips? What if I’m around second-hand smoke in the meantime?
    FYI, I’m 25 and a grad student so ya’ll can save me the lectures, and I’m getting too old to care if I look cool. The question wasn’t “what is everyone’s opinion on smoking?”, now was it?
    Hmm, three answers so far and nobody’s answered the actual question I asked…. I’m not asking how to quit. I just did. Cold turkey. If I use nicotine patches or gum, I will test positive for nicotine. THAT NICOTINE TEST is what I’m asking about, and if I have a good chance of passing it. Nothing else. Thanks.

    • Having just quit smoking, I can answer this question with certainty. It takes up to 72 hours for nicotine to fully leave your system.

  2. How long does it take for nicotine to leave your system?
    This employer will only consider hiring me if I pass a nicotine test. For the past 8 years I have been a light/ occasional smoker usually 0-4 cigarettes a day. However, I have been exposed to second hand smoke for most of my life (my mom is a smoker)..she smoked in the house when I was 2-18 years old. Now I am 23.

    I immediately quit smoking because I REALLY want this job and they offered to hire me. But I have to pass!!

    I haven’t smoked for 14 days. I am 5 ft tall, about 116 pounds. When will I be negative for nicotine. Is there anything to get the nicotine out of my system faster?

  3. can you test positive for nicotine threw second hand smoke?
    I am taking a blood test I dint know if they will test for nicotine but can i test positive for nicotine threw second hand smoke?

    • The test will probably be for cotinine, rather than nicotine (cotinine is what the liver breaks down nicotine into). It shouldn’t give a significant level if you’ve only been exposed to passive smoke to a limited extent and providing you haven’t been eating things that contain nicotine anyway.

      (nicotine is a naturally occurring chemical that appears in many plants in the nightshade family, tobacco (obviously), but also to a lesser degree in the others, potato, tomato, green pepper and eggplant).

      If they do query it, then you could try blaming the eggplant casserole

  4. Is there any difference in blood or urine test between one drag of a ciggerrette and second hand smoke?
    I’m not allowed to smoke and I had blood and urine tests done to me, and I have not smoked ciggerettes in forever but I had just one drag… so my question is…

    1. Would just one drag of a ciggerrette still show up on a blood or urine test?

    2. And couldn’t I just say it was second hand smoke if it did show up?

    • the only way it would show up is if that is what you are being tested for and even then, it may not.
      Are you talking about real cigarettes or grass?
      the nicotine in second hand smoke would be at lower levels but would still clearly BE nicotine. No magic changes because someone already sucked it in and then exhaled or because it came off the burning tip of the cigarette.
      My advice to you, as an ex 2 pack a day smoker is skip the “just one drag”
      It sucks to break the habit and is soooo damn expensive and does nothing for you at all.
      at least grass has medicinal properties.
      Regular tobacco offers nothing but an addiction that leaves you short of breath, stinky breath, everything you wear smells like a really bad cigar, chronic lung issues, chronic sinus issues, etc, etc, etc.
      I quit smoking 27 years ago and today, I am on prednisone and an inhaler because of permanant damage to my lungs so every time I get a cold, I need major help to just breath without my lungs feeling like they are on fire.

  5. Does breathing second hand smoke show up in a blood test for nicotine?
    Have to have a blood test for nicotine for health insurance, do not smoke, but am worried about second hand smoke affecting the test.

    • Yeah but it won’t be as strong as to if you actually smoked it. And the second hand smoke doesn’t stay in your system for as long compared to you actually smoking
