Is it safe to do a pap smear when trying to conceive?
Thank you for your query
Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
What do you mean by tcc...kindly expand ?
Pap can be done while ovulating , the result will be the same as far as disease is concerned .
Do not do pap in early pregnancy as it might cause abortion and also give wrong answers due to hormonal changs.
Feel free to consult me directly

Its not that you cannot do but what is the point
a) Due to the hormone changes in your pregnancy it might show an abnormal report even though everything is normal.
b) Also the pap is done with a stick put inside your vagina. If not done carefully it can lead to abortion due to damage to your cervix .
why you want that risk
will it affect the implantation if there is.. sorry im very scared n being careful due to my 2 times miscarriage..the first which is last year may.. n 2nd is this year april n its becoz of my wisdom tooth surgery.. wheen I did the surgery it shows negative next 5 days shows positive..
If you are not pregnant it will not affect you.
If you are not pregnant but just trying to conceive it will not affect you.
Just tell the person to be gentle.
