What do girls do when they have their period and they have to compete in gymnastics? My daughter just recently started hers. She competes in gymnastics, bt doesn't want to wear tampons. Ughhhhh! Any ideas? Her flow gets to heavy for panty liners :-/

My guess is that they wear tampons. If she doesn't want to, guess she can't compete.

Yep. This.

I always wore tampons when competing. There's really no choice.

How old is she? My niece is 11, and wears what they called junior tampons. They are made for girls that are in this age range. My neice is a swimmer so she used to have this problem.

try the diva cup... although it's inserted like a tampon... but I'd look for thin pads (not the bulgy ones) if need be!
