Hi.
I'm supposed to be learning to dive soon, but have a perforated eardrum. I usually use earplugs when I go swimming, but have recently found out that you can't use them when you go diving cos of the pressure or something.
I've heard about these vented plugs called Proplugs that I think may be useful, but I'm not 100% sure if they're suitable for me, and was wondering if anyone else has had any experience of them? Or if anyone has any other advice? Thanx

I don't think its possible to dive with a perforated ear drum, you should definatley consult a specialist dive doctor.
