Does water stop your period while you're in water?
No, your period does not stop in the water - this is a
Your uterus does not know you're in the water and nor does it
care, it will carry on shedding just as it would when you're not in
the water as menstruation is controlled by hormones not water. The
idea that water pressure stops menstruation is just as nonsensical,
this isn't how water pressure works.
Experiment: get into a shallow bath on your period you can see this for yourself, when your flow is lighter what little blood leaves your body may be diluted in the water so less noticeable, however heavier flow will be more noticeable and if you pass mucus or uterine tissue it will be obvious.
Upon getting out of the water the blood will be diluted with the water so it will potentially run down your legs for everyone to see and getting on the side of the pool, again more noticeable when heavy.
If you want to swim on your period use one of the
- Soft tampons
- Menstrual sponges
- Menstrual cups
Once your lower body is submerged in the water, the difference in
pressure does contain any menstrual blood from coming out. So yes,
it does somewhat "stop" while you're in the water.
However, getting to the pool may be an issue, and you will have
a red spot on your bathing suit.
While swimming, any sudden motion of your lower abdomen (i.e.
fly kick) may cause some pressure and allow blood to flow out.
Getting out of the pool, the change of pressure will have the
reverse affect of when you got into the water and will release a
lot fo blood to pour, and this may be the biggest issue.
You should really use a tampon. It's the most sanitary thing to
do, and it will save you a lot of embarrassment.
You will also have to deal with this once a month with swimming,
especially when you're on your heavier day and you still have to go
Tampons are not bad at all. You do not even feel them,
especially not in the water when they take on some water making
them softer. Talk to a trusted female (sister, mother, aunt,
friend, teammate) about using one, and they may be able to calm you
down about tampon usage.
Hope I helped!
If you have your period and you go in the shower.. your period will stop until you get out of the shower. I don't know why, but you can't have your period when you're in water. ** Your period can and will continue when you are in water! Taking a shower will not hurt you while you are on your period. True, it doesn't actually stop.. but for most young ladies, the flow doesnt come…

No, your period flow doesn't stop in water - this is a myth, there is nothing about water that will stop menstruation. When in water what little blood leaves your body can be diluted in the water, but heavier flow may be noticed and especially so if you pass uterine tissue that wouldn't be diluted in water, once you get out the water blood will be more obvious too.
No, your period doesn't stop in water - this is a common myth. Menstruation can sometimes appear to stop in water because when light what little blood leaves your body is diluted by the water, but it doesn't stop and heavier flow will be noticed. If you want to go in the bath you can do so at any time, but if wanting to go in the water to swim you need to use internal…
Having sex during your period will make the bleeding appear a lot lighter or stop completely. It's nearly impossible to conceive while on your period because there simply isn't an egg in your ovaries...or in the correct position to be fertilized. Your period doesn't always become lighter or just stop after sex during your period. Mine tend to become heavier and a lot more. There is also a chance of getting pregnant while on a…
You can go into the pool on your period - but your period does NOT stop in the water, this is a myth, there is nothing about water that could stop your uterus from shedding and water pressure does not work to stop menstrual flow leaving your body. On light flow days bleeding may be diluted by the water but on heavy flow days the blood and uterine tissue will be noticed in the water…
