    I don't think so. For school swimming my mum would always send a note excusing me from class that week but after about 6 months of having af I started wearing tampons swimming.

    Nope! They would swell up I would think.

    My Mum always just wrote me a note excusing me from swimming. I would do the same for my girls if the situation ever arises (probably will in a couple of years).

    No pads for swimming. Maybe teach her how to use tampons? A pad would disintegrate and float all over the pool.

    I would have thought 12/13 would be too young for tampons? I don't think I used them until I was around 15

    I started using them when I was 11/12, I had had my period for about 3 months, honestly they saved me so many embarassing moments as I was the first in my grade (that I know of) to get my period.

    I think as long as someone is capable of figuring out how to get them in then they're old enough to use them. After a few go's of course lol
