It might seem gross, but honestly so many people do it :) & it doesn't matter if no one finds out about it!! Just make sure that when you get out of the water it's only for like 10 minutes, because that's when your flow starts again, it'll only last like 10 mins, and if that happens just wrap a blanket around yourself if you're eating or something, and then jump in the pool right away so people don't notice that you're bleeding. You could wear a small pantyliner in your bikini thing if you want, it's not like anybody will know that you have one on!! :) It'll stop the bleeding if you stay out of the pool for a certain amount of time. hehe. Or, if you want to try and start using tampons, try this website out: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)
PS. EDIT// I think I made it quite clear that it IS unhealthy on another question that was asked, specifically to me. If she doesn't like swimming with tampons, what else is there to do? Seriously, who cares? Do you honestly think anyone is dumb enough to not realize that it's unhealthy to not wear a pad? Mmmhmm. I don't know how it's "misinformed" You don't bleed while in water.
