Usually they prefer you to come in a week after it stops but they still may do it anyhow depending if it is an emergency appt.  I had heavy bleeding due to an infection one time and they had to do a pap as one of the tests.

You're right with that, but if it isn't an emergency then they won't. Pretty sure it's something about distinguishing the blood from that from if there are any actual problems.

Quoting frndlyfn:
