Dear BeingGirl Experts,

Why is it bad to swim when you have your period?

Dear Ella,

You can swim when you are menstruating as long as you use a tampon for menstrual protection.

 

Take care,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Today my family and I are going to a really nice beach in South Carolina but today out of all the other days my period started I have never went swimming with my period and I have never used a tampon how do I know it works or not. Even though I want to get in the pools and beach. ;(

I was invited to a boy/girl swim party with other things to do besides swim. I really want to go and swim, so I will have to wear a tampon. Can I be absolutely sure that is is safe for me to wear one and have it not leak? (It is also my first time wearing a tampon)

I'm on my highschool swim team and swimming actually helps my period symptoms! You may feel gross and not feel like swimming, but even just getting in and playing around for a while seems to help with my cramps. It's the only thing I've found that's helped.
