is it still possible to receive the O-Shot while menstruating?

Can someone get the O-Shot during their period?

O yes to During menstrual cycle

During the menstrual cycle as long as they are not heavy or especially sensitivity the O shot can be administered. It should be avoided if there is a vaginal or bladder infection.

O Shot While Menstruating

There is no contraindication to receiving your O Shot while on your menstrual cycle; however, some patients may experience increased sensitivity during that time. You would be able to resume all activity and insert a tampon immediately following the procedure. In my office we provide our patients with lidocaine to apply 30 minutes prior to the procedure- most report minimal discomfort.

O Shot and Menstruating

Thanks for your question!  It is possible to get the o shot while menstruating (you could not wear a tampon during the procedure).  However, it does seem to be more painful for women during this time based on increased sensitivity.  Best of luck!
