If will be fine and shouldn't leak at all. In the impossible event that it does, nobody will notice.

If the teacher is a boy, then go to a girl teacher and tell them and they will let the boy teacher know.

Your mom is right. You can wear a tampon when you have your period.

Tampons work fine in water. You should be ok.

Most girls don't bleed in the water. You can wear a tampon && still get in the water . No-one will ever know. Just change your tampon right before swimming && you will be fine sweetie. Even with a heavy flow. Trust your mother. They know best. Let me know how things went.

You can either get a note to excuse you from class, or you can wear the tampon. If you're really worried, wear black spandex or dance shorts in the water.

okay so here is what i suggest: do a test run. It might sound stupid at first but use the tub and pretend it's the pool. Orrrr you can just go with your mum.

Use a heavy flow tampon just before that class and then switch to a regular one after class. It will stay in :)

Moms are usually right. They have more experience than we do, or you in the case.
