Poise pads for periods? Michelle 12/23/04 11:20:23 AM ET
I've now run a couple of marathons while on my period and it looks like it's going to happen again for an upcoming one. Tampons don't stay in, so I'm left to deal with pads. But my next race is small and likely won't include a bunch of portapotties in which to change the pad when the need arises.
So, strange question: Would a Poise pad (or other brand) be better? Has anyone run with these? Are they bulkier? I'm thinking they may be better for absorption, given their intended use.
