Swimming. In the sea, in a pool on holiday, or even in a freezing lake (if you’re brave enough) is a great way to refresh, relax and get your body moving. But what happens when you’re on your period?
Many people believe it’s not possible to swim during menstruation, but that’s far from the truth. In this blog, we’ve taken a look at some common myths around swimming during your time of the month, how you can do so without leaking, and how Love Luna swimwear can help you live your swimming dreams – no matter where you’re at in your cycle.
Common myths about swimming on your period
We’ve all heard the myths about swimming on your period but for many, especially young girls, it can be nerve racking and confusing about the dos and don’ts when you want to take a dip but Mother Nature has come knocking.
Myth #1: Swimming during menstruation is unhygienic
Fact: Swimming during menstruation is no less hygienic than any other activity during your period. Tampons, period pants and menstrual cups are designed to catch menstrual flow. So, as long as you use these products correctly, there’s no need to worry about hygiene.
Myth #2: Swimming during menstruation will cause infections
Fact: Swimming during your period doesn’t increase your risk of getting a vaginal infection. However, it’s important to change out of your wet swimwear as soon as possible to avoid bacterial growth which can lead to thrush or BV.
Myth #3: Swimming during menstruation will attract sharks (we’ve all had that fear, right?)
Fact: There’s no scientific evidence to support this claim, so there’s no need to panic. Sharks are attracted to the smell of blood, but the reality is only a small amount of blood is released when you’re on your period and swimming, and it’s not enough to attract them!
Ways to swim without leaking on your period
There’s nothing worse than planning a getaway, arriving and heading straight for the pool, only to find your period has started. But don’t let that stop you from taking a splash.
Tampons are often the go-to when it comes to swimming on your period. They’re easy to use and can be disposed of easily after use. But they’re not for everyone.
Period swimwear is a great alternative to a tampon and still provides great coverage, comfort and security. Period swim pants are specially designed to be worn during your period. They’re made from a waterproof material that prevents leaks and can be worn alone or under your swimsuit.
