I feel wicked silly asking this question; you would think that at 27 years old, I would have run into this before, but for whatever random reason...I just haven't! I have my yearly OB/GYN checkup scheduled for this Friday, and it just registered in my brain that I will be in the middle of period, which is the heaviest time for me. I'm on the pill, so my periods are not super heavy, but still. Do I need to call and reschedule or is this no big deal? Can my doctor still do my exam (which includes a pap)? My yearly appointment has never before collided with my period, so I'm clueless as to whether or not this is common. Please help!
