    The only reason this is anon if I find discussing things this publicly embarassing.

    Right onto the point, This tuesday my friends are planning to go to a beach/ or a swimming pool if the weather isn't that great.
    The problem is though, i'm on my period at the moment I came on a few days ago and usually stay on a couple of weeks, sometimes longer.
    I really want to go with my friends next week and hopefully go in the swimming pool/sea but is that actually possible seeing i'm on, i've never been on before and been swimming so have no idea.
    Thanks for any help.

    Tampon, to the rescue.

    Go buy some, and wear a few (obviously not all at once!) between now and when you go, so that you are familiar with them.

    Isn't that a little odd? I mean there are only so many weeks you can be on without just constantly staying on.

    I used to have 2-week periods. Then it was discovered that I have a bicornuate uterus, which was causing there to be more lining building up than there would've been in a normal uterus After becoming fed up of spending the first day of each period rolling around in agony and throwing up every 5 minutes, I went on the pill, and now only have 1-week periods to cope with (thank God).

    Maybe you should see a doctor about that.
    I agree, you're at risk of becoming anaemic if you're bleeding that much.

    Use a tampon. And as most people are saying, see a doctor about the 2 week period.
