Can I still swim and play sports?
You definitely can swim and participate in other physical activities during your period. In fact, exercise may help reduce cramping and discomfort.
If you plan on swimming, use a tampon or menstrual cup to prevent leakage while you’re in the water.
You can use a pad or period underwear, if you prefer, for most other activities.
