BeingGirl Points - Major Bragging Rights
Back to My Period Questions
Dear BeingGirl Experts,
Are you more likely to get attacked by a shark when you are on your period?
It has been recommended that a menstruating woman should abstain from swimming in areas where sharks are nearby in order to minimize the risks of attracting sharks. This assumes, of course, her flow is somehow getting into the water, and with the options available to women today this may not be the case. But it is possible for sharks to sense these fluids and investigate further. Assume that sharks might do this, and let common sense should dictate the rule. So, swimming when you are menstruating is fine as long as you are using a tampon and not swimming in shark-infested waters!
Hope this clears this up for you!
