Going Swimming? These Tampons have you Covered @Healthline
Pool or beach while you’re on your period? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Pretty much any type of tampon will work just fine to protect you while you’re in the water. Spotting essentially means that you’re bleeding outside of your regular period. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as stress, medication, and certain infections. When you’re spotting, you probably won’t need as much absorption from your tampon as you would on your period. Try a light absorption tampon with leak protection just in case your spotting is heavier than you think. Tampax’s light tampons feature a thin plastic applicator that glides in easily.
