I have an appointment with my Gyno tomorrow morning to talk about birth control. My period started yesterday. Is my doctor going to have to do an exam? (i had my last PAP back in April, so i dont need one.)

  • you are only required to have a pap once a year if your going in for the pill he will only give you enough to last until your next scheduled pap and if your going after the mirena or something its nothing to worry about they'll probably just schedule you in for april of next year sometime so no worries and usually if you are on your period they wont exam you anyway unless its absolutley medically necessary
