Can I use Cologuard if I have hemorrhoids, menstrual period or blood in the stool?

Cologuard should not be used by those who have or may have blood in their stool due to actively bleeding hemorrhoids, menstruation, or other existing conditions, as this may result in a false positive result. Please discuss your overall screening plan with your healthcare provider to determine what is right for you.
