I have to have one done the 7th, but I am supose to start my period that same week. Can you get one done if you are on your period or do you have to reschedule?

Here is an answer:
It depends on the indication (reason) for which the colonoscopy is being performed. If it is a simple screening colonoscopy then it is advised to wait until the period is over. The reason is that colonoscopy has a risk for perforation and bleeding. Bleeding from a perforated colon in addition to bleeding from the period may lead to a tremendous blood loss.
