Does Menstruation Affect Medical Check-ups?
Ass, I want to ask on May 2, yesterday I held the MCU, the position I was menstruating but had entered 4 days and wrapped in me Also did not bleed at all, just a little flicker. But at that time I did not say the doctor if I was menstruating, I thought blood doesn’t come out huh, I didn’t just say, but when the MCU was over, the blood came out a little. Do you think my MCU will affect or not?
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. MCU or medical check-up is a comprehensive medical examination to detect the disease early. MCU is recommended to be done every 6-12 months on a regular basis, especially for those who have indeed been said to have certain risk factors such as high blood pressure, excess weight or cholesterol.
Regarding your question, the MCU examination in general is not influenced by your menstrual status. So regardless of whether you are menstruating or not, your MCU results remain the same. Only a small number of tests are affected by menstrual conditions, for example is a pap smear examination, which is done by inserting a certain instrument into the vagina, but this examination is not always done. Much more frequent examinations such as measurement of blood pressure, heart rate, heart record, x-rays, etc., are not affected by menstruation.
What is clear, if there are abnormal results later from the MCU that you do, you should follow the recommendations given and consult a doctor for further examination. So, hopefully answering your question.
