can you still get a pelvic exam at planned paernthood if u are on you period?
Yes, it’s totally okay for a health care provider to perform a pelvic exam when you’re on your period. But most health care providers do encourage you to schedule your pelvic exam for a day when you aren’t menstruating. That’s because menstrual fluid can affect the results of some lab tests. But if you have a bleeding problem or another issue with your period that you want your provider to take a look at, go ahead and schedule your pelvic exam during your period.
