Even though most swimming pools prohibit ladies on their periods from getting into the pool, it is definitely possible to swim while one is on their periods. Here are a few ways you can swim safely without having to worry about your periods leaking into the water.
Pads are not recommended since they are made out of absorbent materials. They will become soggy and end up messy.
Did you know that you should actually swim more during your periods? During aerobic exercises such as swimming, your body releases endorphins which act as natural painkillers therefore reducing cramps.
It is highly unlikely to get any vaginal infection while swimming during your periods. This is because water doesn't enter into your body whether on your periods or not. Most complaints from the contaminated pool water are skin infections or stomach aches if you swallow water.
Hormonal contraceptives give you a choice to skip your periods. If you don't want to have them just yet, you can start the next pack immediately instead of taking a few days break. This will keep the periods away until you finish the next pack. If you don’t use oral contraceptives, you can ask your doctor to prescribe a pill callednorethindrone. You take it three to four days before your periods are due. It will stop your periods for about 20 days then your period will come after these days are over.
So your periods should not stop you from having a good time this summer. Go ye into the beaches and have some fun.
