    Anonymous user Hi Libragirl, i just want to ask, what should i do or take when i have back pains during my first and second days of my period? and also, when i first started my period i didnt have any pains or cramps until a few months ago i got the pains while im on my period because of this 2 - 3 months after i was diagonised with scoliosis, i started having the back pains. so im not sure if thats the reason why im having back pains :/ either its my back condition or just the back pain cause of the period. please help!

    if you don't have any allergies, use simple analgesics like paracetamol or an anti inflammatory - talk to mum about this to see what you have at home. But, simple stretching exercises, the use of heat on the sore areas often work alone. At home you could try heat pack, but when you're out, you could try the stick on heat packs that Libra make, you'll find them in the same aisle as your Libra pads and tampons

    Anonymous user what are the signs leading up to your period
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the average age for getting your period is about age 12, but it can be earlier or later than this and still be totally normal. Your breasts will start to grow and you'll get pubic and underarm hair. You'll also start getting vaginal mucous which starts off being a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour. You can have this mucous for a couple of years before your period starts, so use your Libra liners to keep your undies protected and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user Hi Today I realised I had some brown discharge in my undies. Does that mean I'm close to my period? Thanks, anon x
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, this does mean that your body is getting closer to having a period, cause the brown colour is caused by a bit of blood being mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous. So the best idea would be to make sure that you're using your Libra panty liner and to keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Ily...seriously How old do you have to be or how many months into the relationship do you have to be to French kiss somone? I'm almost 14 and I've been dating for 3 months. I was at his house yesterday and we made out... A lot. Like he was grabbing my butt and pinning me against the wall kissing me. Is that okay for how long we've been dating and for how old I am?

    there are no set rules, it's really more about your own exeperience and how you feel about it all. If he's had more experience then he might expect things to move more quickly but it still comes back to how YOU feel about things. It's very easy for things to start moving a bit too quickly, in which case it's still alright to say you want to slow things down for a bit, remember, the best advice is that there is NO hurry and a lot of the fun is the anticipation of what might happen

    Liddy Hi Libragirl Nurse, i wasnot sure if this the right place to ask you this but i found out from my Doctor that i have some kind of fungus on my skin (a skin condition) and im applying cream everyday for it because my Dr prescribed me with a cream but its out of stock so im using these two other cream which works similar to the one that is out of stock. Anyways, due to this fungus, i have a problem with sweating (underarms only) even when its cold or hot! Im sick of wiping my underarms :( ive also tried a different roll on and still no different :( do i have to cope with this till the fungus goes away? Also, when i end up sweating and i have to go to the bathroom to wipe my underarm, what should i tell my family or friends because i constantly go to the bathroom to wipe when i sweat? because i look like that i have a bladder problem whenever i go to my family members or friends place to use their bathroom :/ and lastly, is there a particular deodrant that i could use to reduce me sweating from a bit more than normal? Sorry for asking too many question :/
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    you don't say where this skin rash is, or if it's under your armpits at all etc. Personally, I'd tell your closest friends that at the moment you have a skin condition that is being treated but because of it you feel more comfortable wiping up excess sweat in the bathroom. THis way they'll understand what's happening, and support you. If you talk about it in a matter of fact way, then people tend to treat it in a matter of fact way. I hope that the creams that you're using is agreed on by your doctor cause otherwise you might be making the problem worse. Ask at your local chemist for their suggestions for a different deodorant, but make sure that you let them know what your medical condition is, and what cream you're using so that they have the whole picture. You can also ask them about stick on pads designed to go under the arms of your clothing to soak up sweat, there are different styles available so do some research on the computer first

    Yoga500 I have read that about 6 months before you get your first period your discharge changes from a whitish-yellow to clear and stretchy. Is this true? Thanks :)
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    as your body gets closer to getting a period, it does change from a yellowish colour to a clear or white discharge, and it can be thick, or thin. If this is happening then I'd sugget using your Libra panty liners to keep you fresh and dry and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    this means that your body is getting ready for a period, but it's probably still organising itself. So the idea is to be prepared, this means using your libra panty liners every day and keeping a spare libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your period means that your body passes blood, which is mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous. You can get this mucous for a couple of years before your period starts along with other signs like your breasts growing and pubic and underarm hair. So, mucous alone isn't your period

    Jazzcat Is there a way to help or stop nausea and diarhea on my period? Thank you
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    these are both caused by the change in hormones that happens during your period. The nausea can be helped by watching what you eat, finding out which things help or makes it worse, and trying products that contain ginger - as this helps naturally with nausea, so you can have ginger tablets, ginger ale, ginger tea etc. The diarhorrea usually settles within a couple of days and again by watching what you eat, you may find some things that make it better or worse

    starlight216 I haven't got my period and I'm 13... some of my friends have it but I'm really worried about getting it at school and it leaking onto my uniform (you aren't allowed to tie a jumper around your waist either) I have been getting discharge for 1 1/2 years and recently I have been getting a lot. Any ideas when I might get it or what to do if it leaks??
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you've got the signs of your body getting ready for a period, then you need 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. Once this is organised, you know that you're safe, and totally prepared, and it doesn't matter if your period happens at school, cause you'll just go to your kit and get out your new pad, go to the toilet and change. Libra pads are individually wrapped so you can put it into your pocket and no one will know that you're carrying it. The stories of people leaking at school and everyone knowing are rumours only, they really happen only rarely, and if you're prepared, it won't happen to you

    Anonymous user I'm not meant to start my period till tomorrow but yesterday I noticed that I had this, brown stuff in my undies. But then today I put on a pad "just in case" and there was more brown stuff. I don't know what to do, but also I don't know if it's normal, and I would also like to know if it's ok to have it.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the brown is old blood that has had time to change colour, and then has mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous. It often happens at the beginning or end of your period, and is totally normal, using light pads or liners to protect your undies

    Anonymous user i have a boyfriend who I love dearly but lately weve been around a lot of girls with like big boobs and good bodies and ive got kinda turned on and I get white discharge in my undies, im not sure what the white discharge is?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this discharge is vaginal mucous, and it's your vagina's way of keeping moist and clean. You produce more during different parts of your cycle, and you produce more when you have certain feelings, or see things that turn you on. This can be an attractive guy, another girls breasts, a couple kissing. It's a natural reaction, and it doesn't define your sexuality. So just cause the thought of something turns you on, this doesn't mean that you actually want anything to do with it in real life, it's part of what we think about as fantasies, and we all do it, whether we admit to it or not

    Miss Gemini This is not about periods but I feel really insecure about my breast size.. Most girls in my year (Year 8) have a B cup or more while I'm only a 10A but only just fit into it. My mum also has small breasts, does this mean I will have small breasts? Is there anyway to make them grow?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you get your genes from both sides of the family, so yes, you might take after your mum, or you might take after the women on your dad's side, only time will tell. But, the most important thing to remember is that breasts continue to grow until your early twenties, so there is lots of time for things to change, so don't stress

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's often hard to start the topic off, most of us feel like this, but mum's are usually waiting for their daughters to be the first ones to talk about it. You could start the topic by showing her the parent part of the site, or opening up a magazine with an advertisement for Libra and saying something like, these are the pads I'd like to try. Or just find a private moment with her and say that you'd like to make a little kit to take to school, just in case, and would she help - you'll find that mum will jump at the chance

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    well unfortunately you only have two choices, you either swim using tampons, or you don't swim. It's actually a Health Regulation that if you're swimming in a public place and you have your period, then you must use tampons

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    usually your period comes every 21 days, but when it first starts it might take time to get into a routine, even a couple of years. So keep a diary of when things happen so that you can work out your own pattern. Keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case, and use your Libra liners every day to stay protected

    use your Libra liners to protect your undies and keep you feeling fresh and dry. Libra makes different styles of liners so you're sure to find one which suits you, have a look on the site for different types

    Citrezise Hi, I haven't got my period just yet but I just finished the classes at school of it for this year. I just and wondering what are the main signs of menstruation? I've got liners but I just get worried that I'm going to get it on camp we have soon and if I get it at school. Thanks if you answer
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    when your body is getting ready for a period, it goes through changes, your breasts grow, you get underarm and pubic hair, and you start to get vaginal discharge. When your pubic hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back, this is a really positive sign. Using Libra panty liners protects your undies from vaginal mucous and lets you stay feeling fresh and dry, and you keep a little kit in your bag, with a spare liner and Libra pad, just in case. If you're worried that you're going to get your period when you go on camp, then talk to mum about getting a few more supplies which you can pack with you, it's really about being prepared

    the average age to get your period is 12, but it can happen earlier or later than this, and both are perfectly normal. Usually we start our periods at a similar time to our mothers

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's normal to be nervous about getting your first period, after all it's a big change in your life. But what you have to remind yourself is, that your body was made to do this, and it really knows what to do, you just have to make sure that you're prepared for when it does happen. That just means looking for the signs of your body changing like pubic and underarm hair, your breasts growing, and vaginal mucous. Have a read through the site so that you can get as much information as you need, and perhaps talk to mum too.
