Going on vacation next week and of course Aunt Flo is due to visit....so uh what's a good good tampon to swim with? Is it even possible? I remember using tampons while swimming as a teen but that was before my kiddos big heads entered this world. I would just hate to...ya know...leak while swimming, but I'd also hate to have to sit on the side lines our whole vacation!

I just use cheapies, usually tampax (the normal, not pearl or sport or whatever) and they never leak or give me issues.

I've heard the water pressure stops the bleeding. I never use anything.

I use U by Kotex but have used several different brands over the users and I never had an issue with swimming.

I use Platex Pearls. Never a leakage issue while swimming. Actually I never have had any issues with tampons leaking while swimming. No...not true. I don't like the ones Kotex makes. They seem to be shaped oddly.

I don't bleed while swimming lol. But your tampon you normally use works:)

Thought I was the only one who thought that with those.

I can say I love tampons and have never had  a problem with them while swimming. Maybe you need to change them more idk. But I love U by kotex. For me they work the best I use the super plus ones. truthfully because they hold more and I feel like I have to change a regular one of any brand every ten mins.

I don't know what it is but they are just...weird. Short and rounded, kinda flowery at the top. Whatever it is, they suck. Or don't suck...up the gloop!
