You can not wear a pad while swimming. It will become soaked with water, might fall out of your bathing suit and wont absorb the blood because it is soaked with water. You need tampons in the correct size, or to skip the swimming.

I don't know if you are aware or not that you asked this question twice a minute apart. Anyway, SherryA is right. That pad will, without a doubt get soaked and probably fall out in the water. How embarrassing would that be? I would try a different brand of tampons. There are many on the market. That, or just forego the swimming until your period is over. In addition to that, would YOU like to swim in water that you knew somebody was bleeding in? I know I wouldn't.

Just get a smaller tampon because when your pad is filled with water it wont suck any blood that is coming out.... best choice is wait until your period is finished then you can go no prob:) hope this helped ^-^

You can't wear a pad when swimming .. Period! (no pun intended).

Get some proper fitting tampons..THAT is the ONLY way. Do not enter into a pool (public or private) in any instance where you can contaminate the pool with your blood.
