I’ve had my period for 4 days now and I have a pool party to go to. Will it be okay for me to wear my bathing suit and go in the pool without anything happening?

water safetyIt’s hard to tell if your period will stop once you are in the water. If it is at the end of your cycle or your period tends to be light, it may stop completely but there is no guarantee. If you want to swim and not feel self-conscious about the possibility of bleeding, why not consider wearing a tampon? Using a small slender tampon may be easier than you think. Ask your mom for suggestions and watch our tampon video. Tampons are especially made to absorb menstrual flow while swimming.
