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.

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* [ Jane's advice column | Ask Jane A Question ]
