I have recently gone off the pill(Didn't realize I was on my last pack until the last day, and couldn't get an appt. until tomorrow). If my period still comes when it's supposed to, I'll have my period for my gyno exam for a pap and to get my pills. Can they still do a pap if I have my period? And if not, will they give me my prescription anyway? The next available appointment aren't until Feb. - I really can't wait that long to get more pills.

If you've been prescribed the pill before, and been regular so far with your checkups, there's no reason why they won't refill the prescription without a PAP. Since they can't do a smear while you're menstruating (it could skew the results), you'll probably have to reschedule, but getting a refill for your pills shouldn't be an issue.
