Well, some people claim that you don't bleed while you are in water. I would say this is true in my experience - but it is also true that you bleed so slowly it would dissolve into water. It would appear there was no blood, when there was.

Aside from that, swimming with a pad isn't a smart idea. It is designed to soak up liquid - if you put a pad under water, it will swell and be very uncomfortable. It'll also be totally obvious to everyone around that you are wearing a pad.

The best thing is to skip swimming, or to wear a tampon.

*Maybe it was heavy bleeding to you, but it was probably light. And if ya'll went swimming in the lake, you wouldn't know if she leaked, because she leaked in the water. Also, tell your friend to use a tampon instead, nobody wants to swim in a bloody lake =S*

it prolly was because her flow wasnt that really DONT know unless its you. definitally tell your friend if she wants to go swimming NOT to wear a pad! NOT safe..and it absorbs water and tonzz of BAD stuff!
