Can a smear test do this to you?

    Hey ladies, I had a smear test on the 23rd Feb and it took about 15 minutes for the nurse to find my cervix as it was really high, causing a little bit of bleeding for an hour or so afterwards.

    AF was due a week ago on the 14th March but no sign (BFNs galore..)

    I'm just wondering if anyone has had a smear test and it's made AF late? Or if you haven't had this happen to you, do you have any thoughts on it?

    I have had a regular 27/28 day cyle since I was 13.. so it seems strange that the one month I decide to start charting AF goes missing! :huh:

    Thanks!! :)

    Oh I hate pap smears they hurt like hell and I bleed everytime i get one. but it never made my AF late. if you are stressed in anyway that can prevent AF from coming but not a pap smear.

    Thanks both :)

    I had a chemical last cycle which I know can cause this cycle to mess up a bit too :shrug:

    It's just irritating getting BFNs and being (almost) 8 days late.. it must be because of the chemical :wacko: xx

    Maybe its a combination of both? I am fearing that I'm going through a chemical right now so I have no idea what my already useless cycle will be like next month...

    Good Luck with getting your bfp xx

    Bloody hell what was she doing, going on a search and rescue for your cervix??! They normally just take a sample of the cells part way up, even when I had my biopsies done down there they didnt go that far, tell her to back off next time!:haha: It shouldnt delay anything, if a hsg doesnt delay the whole process then a pap smear certainly wont! Fingers crossed for you hun!xxx:hugs:

    I would say to wait a few more days and if you still don't get your AF then test again

    I had a pap where they couldn't find my cervix, it made me so nervous! After a while of poking around the found it way up "hiding". I had a tiny bit of bleeding but it didnt make af late!
