Hi,
It doesn't stop when you shower , vagina gets flushed off but bleeding is still inside the uterine cavity and as soon as you stop bathing it trickles slowly from uterus again to cervix and vagina and you can feel it or see it . No it is not unhealthy to shower during periods instead you should maintain the hygiene.
