Gyno appt on period? adult content

I have an appointment tomorrow for what I think is a yeast infection that won't go away. The thing is, I just started my period. Should I keep the appointment or reschedule?

  • Give the Dr. A call. If it is for a yeast infection exam, they will haveyou come in. If it is also for your yearlies then they usually try to reschedule.

  • I'd call and ask. If you were getting your yearly exam, I'd say reschedule because most won't do that while you're on your period. But being a yeast infection, they might not want to wait until your period is over to confirm and treat that.

  • If it makes you feel self-conscious, reschedule. But I've been told before by a couple of gynecologists that they've seen it all before and it doesn't weird them out or anything.

  • You'd have to ask the person who is going to be sticking their face in that.
