Yes! It’s totally okay and normal to get tested for STDs at any point during your menstrual cycle, even on your heaviest days. Your period won’t affect the results. 

STD testing can be quick, easy, and painless. Your nurse or doctor may ask you to take a urine test, cheek swab, blood test, or a physical exam. Make an appointment to get tested for STDs with your nearest Planned Parenthood health center
