Please try to schedule your appointment at a time when you will not be on your period, as the blood may interfere with the results of a Pap Smear. However, a pelvic exam may be performed while you are on your period in cases of unusual vaginal discharge or pelvic pain.
If you have abnormal discharge, do not have intercourse for 24 hours before your exam.
Also, please do not use douches, tampons, vaginal medications, or vaginal sprays/powders for 24 hours before your exam.
Make sure to tell your doctor:
- If you are or may be pregnant
- If you are using any type of birth control
- If this is your first exam
- If you have any reproductive or urinary tract issues
- If you have had surgery or other procedures to the vagina, cervix, or uterus.
