6. Can I go swimming during my menstrual period?
You have your menstrual period but all your friends are going swimming at the weekend, what can I do? Can I go swimming during my menstrual period
When you have your menstrual period it is advisable to use a sanitary pad or tampon to protect your clothes from getting stained by blood. If you use a sanitary pad/pantyliners and want to go swimming it is advisable NOT to use a sanitary pad in the swimming pool. You don't want to let your friends down, so what can you do? You can use a tampon instead. If you are not keen on the idea of using a tampon, or you feel that tampons are uncomfortable, you can insert the tampon in the changing room toilets just before you go swimming, then after you have finished swimming you can change back to your favourite sanitary pad.
Having your menstrual period will not stop you from doing something that you and all your friends enjoy, you can still have fun! Yes you can go swimming during my menstrual period
