Colonoscopy

I am having and EGD/Colonoscopy on Tuesday at 1PM.  I am to begin tomorrow the clear fluids.  I started my period yesterday.  Will they still continue with this testing or reschedule?

Having thought about this, if it were me, I wouldn't want to have this done while on my period.  You will have bloating and gas after your tests, and being on your period may just make you even more uncomfortabe.  It's your call.
