I have a soccer tournament from september 4-6. I am suppose to get my period August 31, and it lasts 6 days (the last 2 being bloody discharge). I only got my first period 2 months ago so i have never played a sport while on my period. I have a VERY HEAVY flow. Does a flow increase while running? I am scared i will bleed through a regular tampon in my 3 hour practice, and is it hard to run with a huge pad in? But i am not skilled enough to go in the bathroom to change it mid practice. But putting in a super absorbency would just hurt when taking it out and putting it in. Is there anything i can do to lighten my period naturally (no hormones or birth control too young). BY the way i have hypothyroidism. Or is there something i can do to stop my period a day or 2 early. Also how can i play a sport with bloody discharge because it is too light for a tampon but is it hard to run with a pad in?
Why not use a liner as well as using a tampon? At least you can change that half time and its not big like a pad but its extra protection if you do leak… i was in a football team (from the UK) and never had any trouble or heavier flow while training or playing in the games
