Just realised I will have my period

We have promised the children we will do loads of swimming and I can't wear Tampons. Is there anyway of getting rid of it for a month? Ithought maybe not having the 7 day break in my pill might make a difference.

Can anyone help me??????????????

you can take your pill straight through it won't harm you. I have done it myself.

And that will stop the period?

yes. Its called backtoback or something, just means that your period won't come and then when you take a break the following month you will have a period.

Thankyou, I will have to hunt out the swimming costume .

The other thing you can use is "Utovlan" from the Doctor. It stops your period completely until your ready to have one.

Is that a tablet or a sticky in thing??

So technical with these things arn't I

Will I still be protected from sex - with DH of course?

Utovlan isn't a contraceptive or anything. It's just a tablet that stops periods for any number of reasons. However, if you're on the pill, you're probably better off just taking that until next month as you've already talked about.
