The exam won’t affect anything. BD all you want. We BD’d both days prior to my annual as well as the evening of my annual and the next night. I ovulated either the day of my exam or the next day and I am now 7 months pregnant. I even asked the doctor if the exam would affect anything and she said it wouldn’t.

I wouldn’t. Think about it. They say that for a reason – the reason being that having other “stuff” in there could affect whether or not your pap comes back normals. Odds are very likely that you’re normal and have nothing to worry about. BUT if you do BD and it comes back abnormal AND you get a BFP – you’ll be left wondering whether it is a real problem or from the BD. And it could also complicate followup if you’re in early pregnancy. Is it worth the risk? It wouldn’t be to me.

 

Have you been BDing all week anyway? Because if your EWCM has changed to less fertile, you might have already ovulated anyway. Do you temp or use OPKs at all?

@whitums:  I had an OBGYN appt two days after getting back from our honeymoon, so we definitely didn’t do any “abstaining” in the couple of days before our appointment!

And my pap came back fine! (And apparently, my doctor suspected I was already pregnant at that appointment but didn’t tell me–I got my BFP 5 days later!)

@whitums:  Can you just reschedule your appointment?  Seems like the opportunity to make a baby is more important than the exact timing of your exam…
