  • I don't think I have.
    I usually take showers.
    I rarely even take baths.

  • I hardly ever take baths since we bought our house... our rental had a nice soaker tub.. our house has normal tubs and they arent as fun.. I dont think I have.. but if I wanted to I would just wear a tampon I guess..

  • i have plenty of times..and didnt have any problems, i guess the water stops your flow for a lil while or something, but i never bled in the bath.

  • I have...for one I use tampons mainly... but even if I don't have one in there, water stops your flow... at least that's what my gym teacher in 8th grade told me... :P

  • Tried it once. It was gross when the blood started floating in the water. Never again.

  • Never baths for me - always a shower.

  • Honestly you got to be preeetty heavy for your blood to be floating in the bath water. Put a clean tampon on and soak them kitties! But seriously Ive taken baths with my period on, it eases the cramps, without a tampon. When I stand up it slides down my legs...ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. {{then i just turn the shower on}}

  • I prefer baths over showers (more relaxing) and yes, have taken baths during my period, while wearing a tampon.

  • As long as I have a tampon in no big deal, same as swimming.
