Pap smear
I am due to go to my gynae next week Saturday for a pap smear, but my period will only be finished hopefully on Wednesday. Is it still ok to go then or should I reschedule for a later date?

It is not advisable to have a pap smear` while menstruating. If you think that this will be the case, rather reschedule.
