I was scared af when I went swimming on my period, but it's not bad. I used a tampon but make sure, please make sure you know your flow and which one you should use because no one wants to see jaws in the water. You should change around 2 hours unless you're heavy (flow wise) then maybe what you feel comfortable. Swimming while on your period is not as bad as you think, the pressure of the water slowly stops your period but that does not mean not wear a tampon, but you'll be fine if you are prepared. Just dont be super active like jumping a lot or having people dunk, or throw you in because I doubt people want to see a tampon floating around. :) good luck though!1
