    hi i have just started swimming again and have a question about "star" week and swimming
    what sort of sanatry protection is best, i cant use a tampon so that option is out of the question, i did think about using a moon cup again but unsure
    i might not want to go swimming (my "star" week is all over the place pre menapausal sp)
    but just in case
    any opinions welcome please

    Not sure what else you can do to be honest, but didn't want to read and run. Tampon is the obvious answer. Never tried a mooncup.
    Good luck finding a solution though

    I must say I am very conscious of that time and dont tend to go swimming when I have my period. It could be so embarassing!

    I swim every week and have found the mooncup to be great. I make sure I empty it before going in the water, just to be on the safe side.
