    Anonymous user Hello Libra Girl Nurse! I just wanted to ask, do you think I'm close to my period? I am 13, Ive had discharge for much more than 2 years! But, my Mum had her period at 16.... So I don't know what to expect!

    the discharge is a really positive sign that your body is getting ready for a period, especially when it changes from the yellowish colour to the clear or white discharge. You also notice that the pubic hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back. It might be that you're going to take after the women on your fathers side of the family rather than your mums, but even if it does take a bit more time for your period to start, don't stress, just 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

    lebo8879 Hi Libra Girl Nurse I'm 12 turning 13 and i want to know what's happening with you if u not getting your period for 4 months...does it mean u are pregnant? But u know that u didn't sleep with any boys
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    if you haven't had sex, then you can't be pregnant. But when your period first starts, it can take some time to sort itself out, and you might have times when it becomes irregular, it's frustrating but you body will sort itself out. Other things can affect your period, like stress, illness, weight loss, and then when things go back to normal, your period becomes normal too

    Anonymous user Hi I have hade cramps and spotting but it was not my period what was it and the cramps were really bad they were like a pain in the abs so plz help thx contempery3
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it might have been a surge in the hormones that are responsible for your period, and then the levels disappeared again, so the pain and spotting went. If this is the case, then your body is ready for a period, but is still sorting out it's hormone levels, which is totally normal. Use your Libra liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. If you don't think it's associatted with your period, and the pain continues, then talk to mum about seeing your local doctor

    Anonymous user I'm 12 and I haven't gotten my period since April or May, what should I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    as long as there's no chance that you could be pregnant, there's nothing to worry about. Your period can be irregular - often for no reason at all, and then it sorts itself out and becomes regular again. This happens even more frequently in the first couple of years of your period starting. Other things can affect your period, like weight loss,illness, and stress. Your body has already shown you that it knows what to do, so now you just have to wait for it to become organised again. 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

    rivstar02 OK Libra girl nurse I need ur help!! My sister is to embarrassed to say this so I'm gonna say it for her...wat does she use if her virgina starts to smell??
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    a woman's vagina will always have a particular smell - it's like a musky scent. But if she thinks that it smells differently, then she just needs to make sure that she washes between her legs twice a day, and uses her Libra liners to keep herself fresh and dry

    most commonly we take after our mums as to when our period starts, but it might be that you're taking after the females on your dad's side of the family

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's a personal choice as to whether or not to use liners. They help to keep you fresh and dry, and are useful if you think your period might be coming so they give you added protection. If you feel that you need them, then you'll need to nicely talk to dad about this

    rivstar02 What is spotting???
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's when you get a little bit of blood, like spots, in between the days of your normal periods. It's usually caused by a change in your hormone leves often when your body is still sorting itself out

    Anonymous user Ok, so I am 12 and all my friends are getting their periods. I'm am REALLY scared on getting mine (I don't have it yet). I have been getting discharge for like 4 months. On top of that I have split parents, so I have to go to my dads every weekend, what would I do if I get my period at my dads (I soooo don't want to tell him). Also, (like I said) I'm really scared on getting it. Does it hurt? What happens if I get it at school (I'm in high school)? Thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    why not talk to your mum about how you're feeling and how you're a little nervous about getting your period when you're at your dads. Remember, if it does happen you can always ring your mum. The two of you could work out a small bag of supplies to take and leave at your dad's, just in case. Have a look through the website for answers to lots of your questions and then get back to me with specific questions

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    all the teachers, male or female, are aware that girls might need to leave the classroom because of their period. So you don't need to give them details, just politely ask to be excused

    Anonymous user My period has been almost two weeks late, is that normal?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if there is no chance that you could be pregnant, then yes, it's common, especially in the first couple of years, for your period to be a bit irregular, it just sorts itself out. Lots of things affect our period too, like stress, changes in habits, illness, weight loss Use your Libra liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user I Get this bad rash "down there'' when on my period and it gets really itchy. Is it pad rash ? if so how can i stop it?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the rash can be caused by a number of different things. For example, if your not using a good quality pad, or you leave it on for too long, it could irritate you. Also, if the pad was too wide for you, that would irritate - have a look at the different styles of Libra pads to find one that suits you best. If you leave a pad on for too long, the discharge can irritate, so either change your pad, or wash or wipe between your legs to freshen up - lots of girls use baby wipes to do a quick freshen up.

    symo28 I am 14 and don't have my period yet but I have been getting really bad cramps every morning... I don't know why its happening... would you know??
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    signs that your body is getting organised for your period are pubic and underarm hair, especially when it thickens up down below and goes all the way through to the back. You also get vaginal mucous, which starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour. You can have this discharge for a couple of years before your period comes. Stomach cramps can be caused by other things apart from your period, so they're not as a reliable indicator. Why not talk to mum about how old she was when she first got her period, cause that might give you an idea of when yours would start too

    Anonymous user This is random but what do you do if you really want you period but your friends are worried about get their period ?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's normal for everyone to be a bit nervous about getting their period, but excited too as it's a sign of your body maturing and entering a new phase. So if your friends are nervous, maybe try not to talk about it too much if it worries them

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    you can get bad cramps at any age. If they're period related, they happen more often when you have a heavy flow. Remember too that stomach cramps can be caused by other things too

    Chloe2727 Hey LG, So about 5 mins ago I got my first period. I'm lot more calm about then I thought I would be. So anyway it's browny-red like dark brown!?! Is that normal? I have a friend that's older then everyone in my class, she kinda like the mother hen and I could text her about it but I don't know if its the right thing to do?!?! Chloe xx P.s Im NOT telling my mum
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    when blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown or black. So the blood youre seeing has had time to change colour. A lighter flow tends to be more the brownish colour whereas a heavy flow tends to be bright red

    Erin1207 Hey libra girl nurse, I just got my period and I know absolutely nothing. Can you tell me how long I have it for, how long you don't have it for, when it's best to use tampons and pads. Basically just everything about them as I know nothing thanks!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    most girls start off with Libra pads so that they can see what sort of loss they have, and how often they'd need to change their product. You can basically use tampons as soon as your period starts, but it's a personal choice thing. Your period usually lasts for up to 10 days and comes roughly every four weeks, but it can be irregular in the first 12 months especially as your body sorts itself out. Have a look through the website for more information on topics that interest you
