How do you know which hole the tampon goes in?

ANSWER #5 of 11

You could use a diva cup which goes up like a tampon but it just collects the flow and not absorb it. You can wear it for 12 hours and it is reusable. I don't use one but you can swim with one. And there is no chance of TSS.

ANSWER #7 of 11

you can go swimming when your on your peroid if your flow is light-medium. The water will stop most of your flow but I woudlnt recomend swimming for a long time like that because you may bleed a little bit and that would create a very akward situation!

hope this helps! :D

Using a pad whilst swimming will not work

It will soak up the water and will be very noticeable through your swim suit

So if you want to swim and you are on your period, a tampon is the ONLY option.

Except not to go swimming of course =]

ANSWER #9 of 11

ANSWER #10 of 11

Well the WATER DOES STOP YOUR FLOW. What you have to worry about is when you get out of the water. If you have a regular flow or higher. WEAR A TAMPON. If you have a very light flow, like at the end of your period. There is NO NEED FOR A TAMPON as long as you check, and you get out of the pool that blood is nowhere on you.
