You can dive while on your period. Some studies suggest that women taking oral contraceptives may be marginally more susceptible to decompression sickness during their period, but the risk is small and can be negated by diving conservatively. Otherwise, there appears to be little evidence of increased risk posed by menstruation
Yes ! you are allowed to dive next other male members of your scuba team, but you need to cover your body with diving suite
Difficult conditions like heavy current or surface chop may increase the need for physical fitness, but recreational diving in good conditions can be performed by the average healthy adult. Diving can be strenuous, but divers do not need to be endurance athletes to enjoy the aquatic world. If you exercise regularly at an intensity that keeps your heart rate above 70 percent of maximum for more than 90 minutes per week, it is likely that you are fit enough to dive recreationally in many conditions
This is a very frequently asked question, but the answer is very individual and rarely straightforward. The condition that requires the medication may be the concern. Because of the wide range of medications that could come in to play, and their effects, it is impossible to give a universal answer. It is possible to dive while taking many medications, with all other factors being considered equal, but prospective divers must consult their doctor before considering diving while on medication
