Hey halter105It is perfectly okay to swim while you're having your period. While it may be a bit uncomfortable, you're not at any risk of catching a disease if you swim during menstruation. It's a good idea to use a tampon while you're swimming, since a pad will just soak up the water, and remember to change it often. If your mom still has concerns about you swimming during your period, you may have to do a bit of "parental educating" or get her to speak with a doctor.
