Can I swim during my period?

Yes, you can definitely go for a dip! There was a time when girls were told crazy stuff, like not to go swimming when they had their period for fear that sharks would attack or their tampon would swell with water, causing them to drown. Crazy, huh? Don’t avoid a perfect beach or pool day just because you have your period. Swimming is perfectly safe, you won’t bleed all over the pool, honest! And tampons are definitely the best option for great protection while swimming –because tampons expand to fit your body. Just stay on top of changing them as needed and don’t forget to hide the string! There’s nothing stopping you from rockin’ that cute bikini! Learn more about swimming with Playtex® Sport® Tampons.
