Would you get a pap during your period?
For most women, the answer would be an emphatic no just for the “eww” factor alone.
I was particularly good at cajoling my female patients to get their pap done TODAY when they came in for other concerns.
My charge for killing two birds with one stone on the same clinic visit while saving the expense of another co-pay worked like a charm. No messy period was getting in my way checking off the pap smear box.
