I've had my period for 4 years but I've never swam with it. I don't like tampons bc no matter what I do it hurts. Putting it in I can't find the right angle and then taking it out (even after 6-8 hours) hurts like a bitchhhh. However a family vacation lines up with my period soooo do I need to wear a tampon if I want to go swimming? Ik it's gross not to but can I get away with it?
