I've made an appointment to get back on Birth Control. I need to have a physical and the girl parts exam. I made the appointment for as soon as possible (a month from now and not even with my real doctor - would have had to wait 3 months to see her) without really thinking about what time of the month that would be. Can you be on your period when they do a pelvic exam? If you can, what's the protocol for tampons and pads? I'll probably call them back and ask them but I'm not sure if it's a completely weird question to ask or not.
Edit: Question answered. I've rescheduled. Thanks! Crazy that I'm 24 and this has never come up or been an issue before. Just been lucky I guess.
