A visit to the pool is an extremely pleasant and useful form of physical activity, as well as relaxation. Swimming differs from a number of other sports activities by a much smaller number of contraindications, as well as many useful effects. And to miss it during menstruation, that is, on average, at least one or two times a month, no one wants. In this article, we will talk about whether to go to the pool during menstruation and if you still decide to do it – what rules should be followed.

And, perhaps the most important rule: listen to your feelings. If you feel that abandoning the pool will cause you stress and, consequently, more severe pain and bleeding – why not allow yourself to swim, but with all the rules. Or if you basically tolerate critical days, or feel light on a particular day. But if you feel bad, uncomfortable, hard – it is better to move to a minimum and, if possible, to comply with bed rest, rather than swim in the pool.
