  • Thats a new one for me, where in the world did you hear that?

    I would not go swimming in the ocean on my period because of SHARKS they can "smell the blood" a mile away.
    You can take a shower, but not a bath because blood will get in the water unless you still have in a tampon then what the point is bathing....

  • Where did you hear this BS? They got rid of that silly old wives tale about the turn of the LAST century! What do you think tampons were invented for? Take a shower, girl, take a shower!

  • ive never heard this before. i have heard that your period will stop when you get wet but only while you're wet. and its been my experience that it usually stops, but it comes right back once you dry off.
