Papsmear Question

Hi, Does anyone know if it is ok to get a pap smear the day after your period ends? Or will this interfere with the results since there may still be a trace of blood?

nope won't hurt a thing.  You can even get a papsmear during your cycle if you wanted to.  Good Luck.

You can get a pap when you are done with your period.  That shouldn't matter. Some obgyn doctors won't do a pap test if you are on your period unless it is very light.

My doctor wont perform pap smears if I'm on my period.  I don't know if that means anything.  I never asked.
