Hey all. I have my first annual gyno exam on Monday morning at 8. I was told not to have sex 2 days before the exam
Would sex late Friday night (like 11pm onward) have an effect on the tests? Thanks.

One Response to Sex before annual exam

  1. Hteall says:

    It might. Basically, penetrative sex roughs up the cervix (potentially leading to false alarms of abnormal cells) and can leave fluids (semen, lube) in the vagina, which can also cloud the results. Late Friday would probably be fine, but if you’re likely to worry about “abnormal” results that might or might not be caused by the sex, you may want to abstain from penetration a little longer than the 48 hours.
