    Default Pap smear

    I'm due for my next Pap smear in October, but am planning to start TTC again within the next couple of months. Am I better off getting it done now, or can it be done while pregnant if necessary?

    I'd get it done now to make sure everything is fine before ttc.

    Thanks! That's what I was thinking, but I didn't know if it was silly to get it done early.

    Well getting it done early is better than getting it done late. I wouldn't want to irritate my cervix in pregnancy either.

    I'd get it done now. In saying that, I had mine done at 13wks.

    Get it done now. It's not ideal to have a pap smear when pregnant, and it's easier to get the doctor's for a pap smear before you have a new baby to take with you. Plus it's good to know everything is okay before falling pregnant.

    Yeah get it now I had mine about 6 months early because we wanted to start trying. I would have rather known if there was anything wrong that needed to be addressed before TTC

    In both my pregnancies my obstetricians have done Pap smears at my first appointments (8-10 weeks pregnant).

    It's perfectly safe to do so (I believe my doctors more than people on Internet forums), but you might as well get it done now if it's convenient.

    I miscarried as a directed result of having a pap smear in early pregnancy. Yes it is really rare but it can and does happen.
