hi, just wondering if there's a preferable time in your cycle to have a smear test while ttc?  i'm due one, but probably trying to put it off ...
thanks - t x

Not sure if i can answer when the best time is when you are ttc during your cycle but i do know that my clinic would not go ahead with tx without all the blood screens and smears etc being up to date

Hi

I was told mid cycle was the best time to have a smear test but i realise that this can affect ttc.

I had a smear in July which was inconclusive as they had not collected enough cells. I had to wait six weeks for result and then another couple of weeks before it was a good time to have another smear test. I am due to start tx in december and my smear result is not due back until the end of November. Just thought I would mention this as like you I put it off a few times because i didn't want to 'waste' a month. Now i realise how long the results take i would say it would be best to get it out of the way as soon as you can then you can just forget about it.

Hope this helps

Hi tanny

I  wouldn't have thought a smear test affects tx.. as far as I understand they take cells from the mouth of your cervix .. not the womb where it all happens.

Sorry just to claify

my clinic would not do tx without an up to date smear test because if there is a problem it needs to be treated before fertilty treament otherwise any abnormal smear result will not be treated until after the baby was born assuming a pregnancy which is nine months , thats a long time to wait to treat an abnormal smear

Hi Tanny

I have just had a smear test last week.  The nurse was very adamant that she wouldn't do it if there were any chance of me being pg,  i was advised to go mid cycle but a couple of days before hand shouldn't be a problem, i have to wait 4 weeks for my result.

Good Luck
Emma
