Can you have a transvaginal scan when your on your period?

Finally got my first consultation today at the IVF clinic. They say I have to have a transvaginal scan on arrival but typically I've come on my period. And to top things off of course with that comes the agony of the Endo! Really need to get some answers today about how the Endo is going to effect my chances of having IVF / the IVF working. Obviously without the scan we won't be able to get the full picture or start planning treatment. Does anyone know if they will still scan despite being on?
