Only mammals have periods. Turtles are reptiles and reproduce by laying eggs. Therefore, no periods. Turtles don't even have wombs, since their embyoes develop in the egg, outside of the mother's body, usually buried in the ground.

Could sea turtles survive in freshwater?

When in captivity, sea turtles should be maintained in water with a salinity level falling within a range of that of normal, natural, incoming seawater. Short periods of holding sea turtles in fresh water can be tolerated and are useful when prescribed by a veterinarian, e.g., to remove parasites and fouling epibiota such as barnacles. However, prolonged periods in fresh water should not be encouraged. Sea turtles are meant for life in the sea, so they do best in an environment with a similar salinity.

Are turtles slow?

The term "Slow" is based on your perspective. From our perspective, turtles are slow because they move slower than we do and, indeed, even slower than other things their size. This is only true, however, on land. In the water they are actually very fast. For instance, a green turtle in the sea can reach nearly 20mph. So, the belief that turtles are slow is based on the perspective of a land creature, which turtles are for only brief periods of their life.
