can i swim with my period?

Hi
You probably think what the hell of course you can swim with a tampon but i need some help. Im thirteen years old and i swim 9 hours a week. My worst time is when my period comes and i never get used to swmming with it. Youre meant to have a small flow when you swim but mines so heavy i have to change a super every hour and its hard. Can anyone help me? I need some advice. My friend suggested a menstraul cup but wouldnt they leak? Thanks. Please reply and tell me your answers :)

Hi there.  Have you talked to your mom about this??  She would probably have some help for you.  Those super heavy days are probably just day one and maybe two of your period, right?  Well, on those two days----  keep an eye on the clock and at the hour point into practice, leave the pool area, go to the locker room and change the tampon.  Take an ibuprofen before swimming if you have cramping on those days as well.  I've been a swimmer and my sons currently are on a competitive swim team, people will leave periodically from the pool deck to go to the locker rooms. Your practices are probably two hours long---  bathroom before swimming for tampon, bathroom one time during practice for tampon, bathroom right after practice will keep you from having issues most likely.  Just be on a schedule and swimmers are used to watching clocks.  good luck
