Need help women marathon runners!
Help! I have my first marathon this December (8th) and I realized that my period will be falling the week of the Marathon. I have extra packets of my Ortho Tricyclen (birth control pills) lying around and thought that I should start taking them again, but take the 21 days rather than the 28 and take them back to back because I read somewhere that you could skip your period that way. Is that true? Has anyone tried that? I really would rather not have to deal with my period at the Marathon. Plus I'll be staying at a Hotel with some friends and we'll be sitting in the pool and jaccuzi the entire time after the race. Help?!
