Menstrual cycle while swimming

can you swim while on your period without a tampon?  My daughter is 10, has a swim meet today and just got her period.  Does blood stop flowing while in the water?

Oh no!  Doesnt the "first time" always show at the worst moments?  I would not recommend sending her swimming without a tampon - think how horrifying any sort of leakage in front of everyone would be.

But 10 seems pretty young for a tampon, doesnt it?  I would maybe call her doctor and see what he or she thinks about your daughter using some of those "slender" tampons.

I hope that things work out ok!

I just got back from swimming and I started and I wore a clean pad in my bathing suit and I was completly fine but yesterday your period does stop when you get in the pool.

I would recommend you make her wear a period panty,so that she can avoid any embarasing situations..You never know how her flow level might turn out to be.
