Can I see my OBGYN while on my period?

Postby courtlandt » Fri May 18, 2012 9:05 am

I have had severe cramping and other issues revolving around my period for over a year now and ovarian cancer/tumors run in my family. I want to go ASAP but I didn't know if I would be able to be seen while menstruating. What should I do??

It depends on what your OBGYN would want to do to test you... You should really call your doctor's office and explain your situation and get their opinion.

If it's an emergency, they'll call you in but if it can wait, they'll put your mind at ease.

I agree with the other post. If I were you, I'd just call and ask. Or, just call anyway for an appointment but make so it's after my period. Because if they need to do an exam then it can get messy.
