If you are eating don’t read this story about Hope Solo.

You have been warned….

Hope Solo tested positive for banned substance found in her pre-menstrual medication and received a public warning from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Monday.

Solo, 30, tested positive for the banned substance canrenone as the result of an out-of-competition urine sample collected June 15.

USADA said she was taking the medication in a “therapeutic dose under the care of a physician.”

“I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic,” Solo said in a statement. “Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way.”
