Blood Tests During Period?

I am supposed to go for a battery of blood tests, and my rag just started....i dunno if i should wait until its over so as not to screw up anything on the tests, (like low iron, or minerals) during the flow which could affect results, or if it doesn't matter if you have a blood test while on your period...anyone know?  They are checking for multiple things..

I have gotten blood test done while on my period before, one test I have to be on my period for it. Just let them know they will tell you of they can or not

If you have low iron on your period something is not right. Get them done :)

Well your period is not really blood..its mainly uterine junk and a little bit of blood.

Menstruation will not affect a blood test unless something is wrong.

Go.

It's fine. Thats iron from your unused uterus not your blood stream.
