No It is not true that your period stops under water. It will lighten up, but not stop. When i was your age i was scared to death to use a tampon, until one day i went swimming with a pad on and lost it in the water. I recommened if you do go swimming use a tampon, but instead of using a regular, try using a Light sized lampon, they are smaller and may be easier for you to use. And most defiantly get plactic, they slide in much easier.
