Can I have a pap smear during my period?
I scheduled my annual pap smear several months in advance because my doctor is so booked up. It's next Monday and although my periods aren't incredibly regular, it looks as though I could be having it then. Is it OK to go ahead with the pap? I've heard different things, from the test not being as accurate when you're having your period to the results not being reliable at all. I'm afraid if I cancel the appointment they won't be able to get me in for 6 months! Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!
