Can i go swimming with my period without a tampon?
ok, so i have had my period for about 4 days now, and i think its started to go away. i don't bleed in the day, (other than brown blood. i only bleed that when i wear a big pad.) but when i get out of the shower, i do bleed a little. tomorrow our class is going to the swimming pool for pe. i would bring a note, but then if i do that, all my friends will ask why i'm not in the water, and because i have a lot of friends, i don't want them to know. i don't feel conferrable wearing a tampon but i do, wearing a pad. i know the blood stops when you get in the water, and that pads will just obsorve all the water around it. but i wasn't planning to wear a big pad, just ultra thin ones that hardly have any cushioning in it. please help! i scared that the blood will come running down my leg. or if i can't do that, what can i tell my friends why I'm out of the pool?
