sharks generally do not care that much for human blood.. now put a few drops of fish blood in the water and that is a different story...

For what it's worth..."There is no evidence of increased shark interest in a menstruating female. The hemolytic blood associated with menses may instead act as a shark deterrent (Edmonds, et al., 1992, p. 65)."

I found the following reference particularly helpful. It is on the Divers' Alert Network and is titled, "Diving Medicine FAQs, Menstruation During Diving Activities"

It is bad to skip the period due to unwanted pregnancy. Pregnancy should be ruled out routinely, when you skip the period.

Marine creatures like sharks existed in the Jurassic. Marine reptiles like icthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and thalattosuchians also existed. Thalattosuchians are fully marine reptiles.
