Should I cancel?? Pink discharge day before screening...

Hi, so I have my first cervical screening later on today but last night and this morning I noticed very small amounts of blood in my discharge as though I'm about to start my period. I'm not supposed to start my period this week but I started taking a new contraceptive pill about 10 days ago so maybe that's upset the system a bit?

Basically, should I cancel and reschedule or is a tiny amount of blood okay for a screening?

Any help would be super!  Thanks in advance! :)



I think a small amount will be ok? Maybe call and ask

Some ladies prefer to reschedule  but the nurse at your surgery will still carry out your smear test even if you have your period, remember they do not judge and have seen it all before!
