Terra's Past Letters


"Can a girl go swimming when she has her period?"

Hey Terra,

My friend has her period. Her boyfriend invited her to a pool party and she doesn't know what she should do. Should she get into the pool? She and I don't know much about periods except that they come once a month.



Dear Rosie,

You and your friend should learn more about your period.

Here's some helpful information for you about your body and menstruation.

It's fine for her to swim while she has her period if she feels like it and if she's wearing a tampon. She shouldn't go in the pool if she's unprotected or just wearing a pad. Not a good idea!

I hope this answers your question.

In friendship,
