    That's great, not everyone will get period pain so you're one of the lucky ones who don't sometimes when your period gets more organised or heavier, you might get some period pain on your heaviest days

    Anonymous user Where could i try out some products? I was just recently on my first period and I wasn't very prepared so I was wondering if I could get some free samples to try it out?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    Libra provide one free sample, you ask for that from the main website After that you need to invest in your own supplies. Have a look on the website for the different types of pads etc available and work out what would be best for you. Make sure you've got a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user Hi, I got my period last wednesday at around 1:30 in the afternoon. It seemed a lot heavier than other periods I've had. I did make a green tea last monday but only drunk around maybe 20-30ml because I was new trying it and didn't really like it. I have heard that green tea can bring on periods and I was wondering if this has put my period out of whack. Anyway I got my period at around 1:30 on Wednesday the 19th november. It is a lot heavier than usual and I was cramping badly last Wednesday and Friday and I've have only ever had cramps like once before. I still have my period and it is now almost 6pm on Tuesday 25th. It is getting a bit lightly but not much. What is going on? If it helps I had my period in may this year and didn't have it again until the 1st of october but it was extremely light and lasted only 3 days. Is this normal? Should I be worried? And what do you think is going on?

    It sounds like your body is sorting itself out and that the periods you've had up til now have been quite light. What you're seeing now is more the normal thing, so don't stress, it's all fine, just make sure you've got the right Libra supplies

    for most girls they don't get any pain when they have their period, so this is something that you probably shouldn't really worry about. Have a look through the site so that you can get the information that you need, and focus on being prepared for your period, using your Libra liners and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Your body knows what to do, you just have to trust it

    zelinarox what are the signs of periods
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    when your body is getting ready for a period you get underarm and pubic hair, your breasts start to grow, and you get the vaginal mucous. The mucous starts off a yellow colour, and then changes to a white or clear colour. When you're closer to your period the pubic hair also grows all the way from the front through to the back

    Anonymous user I know that I should be happy about this but, how come I never have period cramps? I have had my period for a year now. Has got something to do with diet weight or exercise? I don't exactly have the healthiest diet but I do exercise a lot. I'm 13, 53kg and about 160cm tall. Please help!

    some girls get period pain, some girls don't, some girls have mood changes, others don't. It's just cause we're all different. It doesn't mean anything good or bad

    EmmaammE I have had my period for about a year now and I have never had mood swings before my period or during it. But, I always have them about 3 days after my period. Is this normal?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    if it's always happening like this for you, then yes, it's normal. It might be caused by the drop in hormones in your body following a period

    helpfulgirl01 How do i talk to my mother about periods and tampons? The thing is my parents separated when i was younger and only just came to live with her. I dont have a very good bond with her, nor do i feel comfortable talking to her about it. She is the one that cringes when i bring up the topic of tampons. I only really talk to my friends or older cousins... Please help!!!

    if it's been a bit of time since you've been together, then it's going to take some time for the two of you to development a new type of relationship, it can't be rushed. So although it would be great if the two of you could talk about these things right now, it might not be going to happen for a bit, so take little steps to give the both of you time to get used to new things. Perhaps get her to look at the site so that she can see where you're coming from. In the mean time, having friends and family members like cousins to talk to is fantastic

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it was probably a lot of information for her to take in at one time and it was a bit overwhelming. She get used to it all in time. Suggest she has a look at her own pace over the Libra site so that she can learn all she needs to know

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it will come, and as frustrating as it is, you just have to wait. Your body will have a period when it's ready and there's nothing that can be done to speed things up. Look for the signs that your body is getting ready, like pubic and underarm hair, your breasts growing, and vaginal mucous. When the mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white, that's a really good sign. Make sure that you're prepared by using your Libra liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Lani lo Ok so I have this extra bit of skin in the opening of my vagina but it's got a hole in it and when I take the tampon out it really hurts because it get stuck and I don't really want to see a doctor because I'm only 13 and my mums a nurse so she knows all of the doctors / nurses so it would be weird so what do I do
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it sounds like a bit of your hymen, the stretchy opening at the opening of your vagina. It can be uneven and annoying, but ultimately it just stretches and gets out of the way. When you remove your tampon, try angling it so that it doesn't go against this bit of skin if you can, or use a bit of lubricant. Always make sure that your tampon is ready to be removed, ie full, that way it's moist and slides out more easily

    Anonymous user Hi I'm 13 and I have been getting discharge for awhile but today I went to the toilet and the discharge was brown! I'm quite scared because we are going to the pool tomorrow with school and I don't know what to do!!!!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this sounds like your body is really ready for a period, the brown was a bit of old blood that was mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous. So I'd suggest using your Libra liners from now on and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. You should be fine for swimming, but you need to get your head around the fact that your body sounds ready for a period, and if you're going to swim when you have your period then you need to use tampons

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    in the first year or so, it's not at all uncommon for your period to be irregular while your body sorts itself out. Your period can be affected by other things too, like stress, loss of weight, illness etc and then, it will all go back to normal. As long as there is no chance of her being pregnant, then there's no drama at all

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    some women say that they do pee more often on some days of their period, this would be due to the hormones, or it might just be that they're wanting to go and check their pad so end up in the toilet more

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    well, the girls who are teasing you are both mean and immature. For all they know, seeing your breasts continue to grow until your early twenties, you could end up having the best breasts of all. And what we all need to remember is, this is not something that is under our control, your body will grow in all the right places only when it is ready, it's not something that can be speeded up. So either ignore these girls, or remind them how mean they're being, not friends at all

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    depending on what your flow is like, you might feel a bit damp between your legs, as if there is some added wetness there. Or you might have other signs of your period coming, like tender breasts, a bit of abdominal pain or bloating. If you keep a calender of when your period comes, you'll notice a pattern and be more aware on those days that your period is due

    HyphyChik can you wear a tampon even though your period hasnt happened in a really long time? or do ONLY wear a tampon when your period is happening there and then?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you only use tampons when you actually have your period. Using them at other times puts you at risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome, AND they will be more uncomfortable to remove as they haven't any blood/mucous to absorb, so they feel like they're 'sticking' as you go to remove them

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, it is. When blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown, or even black colour, so this is what you're seeing, blood that has time to change colour mixed in with fresh blood

    kiarnna.200 what happens if u have dancing and u dont have a pad or a tampon
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the best approach is to make sure that it never happens to you, so you'd use your Libra liners every day and put a spare Libra pad or tampon into your dance bag, and any other bag you frequently take out, like your sport or school bag, that way you'll never be caught short and be able to help a friend. But, if this does happen to you, ask a friend for help, or even the teacher, you'll find that someone will be able to help. In an emergency, you can always line your undies with a bit of toilet paper
