The only way you can go swimming with your period is if you were a tampon ;) Never wear a pad in the water

you can swim when you have your period without a tampon. the water stops the flow. just be careful when you get out if you have a light colored bathing suit!

When I got my first period my mom didn't believe me bc I joke around about stuff and be silly. Anyway, I used the bathroom I saw the blood blah blah. I told my mom she said I don't believe u show me. So I had to turn my under around and show her (gross!) so that's my story!

i was at old navy when i first got mine my mom freaked out more than i did

You don't bleed in water. Make sure the area around your crotch is bloodstain free (get that from wearing pads) so the water can't wash anything off, and you'll see for yourself. Try it in the bathtub or a shower. If you are uncomfortable swimming while on your period, let your friends know you just want to tan and not get into the pool. If they make fun of you for it or don't want to be your friends, drop those "friends" because they are certainly not. Once you are comfortable using tampons, it will get easier. People don't buy them for nothing!

Wow, thats the dumbest thing Ive ever heard. If you don't like tampons don't swim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was going to the bathroom right before going camping by myself with my friends family when I got mine. The trip didn't go to well!
