Colonoscopy/endoscopy - For Females Please!

Recommended Posts

Errr... So I just realized, My colonoscopy and endoscopy is scheduled for when it will be 'that time of the month.'  Am I going to need to reschedule?  (I hope not, I'm dying here, and REALLY want to find out when I can eat again.)

The timing didn't work out that way for me so I didn't even think about it, but I don't think that it is relevant, unless you only use pads.  Even if it is a problem, you should at least be able to get the endoscopy done so that you can get your results.

I'm a GI endoscopy nurse and spend much of my workday assisting with colonoscopies. Having your period is not a problem at all. Just tell the doctor you have your period and let them know if you have a tampon in (it can stay in during the colonoscopy).
