I have been on the pill consistently for over 12 years now. I will be coming off the pill in the next month to start TTC at the end of this year. Because i have been on the pill for so long, i am so used to being able to skip the sugar tablets or 'plan' when to have my period around holidays or special events etc so i can have it when i dont have anything special on. I am one of the girls (like most of you im guessing) that cant stand having my period & i skip it as much as possible, on advice from the doctor this is apparently OK.
I am dreading the thought of coming off the pill and having my period every month. How have you girls coped with having your period on holidays?? Especially beach/pool holidays? We are planning a 2 month holiday later this year and i wont be on the pill then so i am already stressing and worrying about having my period at least once or twice during the time we are away. I hope it doesnt sound silly because i know its a part of life but for the last 12 years i have just gotten so used to being able to skip the sugar tablets and plan it to come at a more convenient time! We will be spending alot of time by the pool and beach on our holiday and im dreading the thought of having it at that time. We are planning to go to a few waterparks as well with lots of waterslides, i would hate to miss out on this because of my period!
Have any of you travelled or been on beach/pool holidays and had your period while travelling?? Do you have any tips or advice??
Sorry if this sounds silly but i would love any advice you can give!
