Doctor insights on:
Can I Get A Pap Smear On My Period
Yes: Yes, you can have a pap smear done at that time. I would recommend that you have a liquid based pap test and not a conventional pap smear at that time of your cycle because it allows us to remove any remaining excess blood and make sure the cells are preserved well for the best detection of any possible abnormal cells. ...Read more
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

8 months pp, my period this month is a dark brown with some bleeding. I had a pap smear earlier this month and everything was good. Why is that?
Breastfeeding?: If you are breastfeeding than periods can be irregular like this. If you stopped breastfeeding and having normal periods up until now, this can still be normal. Likely due to hormonal changes. Pap smears are screenings for cervical cancer. And bleeding is almost always coming from inside your uterus. Sometimes, but rarely, they are the same. Keep an eye on your bleeding and call md if worried. ...Read more

I have my gyno checkup the same week as my period next week. Should I start my new pack of pills so my Pap smear results aren't altered?
You can: Yes, I would just stay on the active pills of the BCP pack and that way avoid your menses at that time. Do not take the sugar pills or placebo pills at the end of the first pack and just skip right to the active pills of the second pack. You can do this anytime you want to avoid having your menses (i.e. for a vacation). The liquid based Pap smears are not affected by light bleeding though. ...Read more

You should speak wit: Most doctors are willing to speak to the patient if you make a call to his office. Tell them how you feel about waiting without knowing. If you are firm with the receptionist,, she will let you speak with your doctor or his nurse and find the reason for asking you to come back to his/her office. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex a day after a pap smear, im having yellowish discharge no odor (but also was on my period few days later) why?
Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I just got my first Pap smear yesterday I'm 23 and a virgin now I'm seeing blood but how do I know if it's my period or did the doctor break my hyme?
Pap Smear: it is not unusual to have a small amount of bleeding after a Pap smear. Sometimes the cervix bleeds a little when it is brushed or scraped. This is usually apparent when the pap is done. I usually tell my patients at the time to expect a little spotting. If it is persistent or becomes like a period then you need to contact your doctor. Hymen was not broken. ...Read more

Very unlikely: There are a few documented cases of women over 50 conceiving naturally, but virtually all have had regular periods in the recent past. Most of the remaining have become pregnant with the help of various fertility treatments. Can you become pregnant? Possibly but, given your menstrual history, it's unlikely even with reproductive assistance. Sorry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
