    Anonymous user When will I know when I am going to have my period
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your body gives you signs that it's changing. You start to grow underarm and pubic hair, your breasts grow, and you start to have vaginal mucous. This mucous starts off as a yellowish colour, and then changes to a white or clear colour. When this happens, and the pubic hair grows all the way through to the back, these are really good signs. Make sure that you're prepared by using your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    periods can last from anywhere from 5 - 10 days. In the first couple of years it might be irregular in length etc, but that's normal and fine

    Kaygame Hey I started my Period in May and I counted 28 days and it didn't come.So I'm a bit worried because it's been 3 days. Can anyone give some advice to me?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it can take time for your body to get into a pattern with your period, sometimes a couple of years, so keep a diary of when your period comes, how long it lasts for etc so that you can see when a pattern starts. On the days in between, to make sure that you're protected, use your Libra liners, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user I can't insert a temp on when I try it hurts. Is this normal and how can I insert one without it hurting
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's often painful when you first start to use tampons, the most common reason for this is cause you're a bit stressed and tense. This makes the muscles around the opening to your vagina tighten up too, so it's hard to put the tampon in. Use  a smaller tampon, perhaps a mini, and lubricate the tip with some water based get. Read the instructions in the pack and on line, and try to relax. The tampon is angled towards the back of your body, not straight up. Some girls find it easier to use the Libra applicator tampons. It does take practice, so try not to stress

    Abbyhildebrand54321 Hi I'm Abby and I have discharge but I use thin pads but they always fall off my underwear so what can I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I'm assuming you're using Libra pads? When you apply the pad, stetch out the gusset of your undies a bit so that the pad will adhere properly. Use a good pair of well fitting undies so that they're snug against your body to hold the pad in place

    azraahxx Does your period come when your breasts finishing growing. And how do u know if u got your period or not
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your breasts grow from your early teens (even earlier for some girls) right up until your early twenties, when they fill out more. Your period tends to come any time from age 12 to 15/16. You know it's your period cause it's blood mixed in with vaginal mucous - when it happens it's quite obvious

    Happy_unicron My school production is coming up in about 1 week. I have an app called clue and it tracks you period. According to clue my period will come 1 day before before the production and I'll have it when my production is on. I really don't want it to come while it is on because I'm a dancer and I have to do the splits and suff like that and wearing a pad doing things like that is really uncomfortable. Are there any natural ways to delay my period? If so PLEEAAASSEE tell me
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    no, there are no 'natural' ways to change when your period will come - the only thing that you can take would be the oral contraceptive pill which changes to production of hormones in your body. So, you'll need to be prepared for your period to come. As long as you're using well fitting undies, your pad will stay in place. You'll just need to check it more frequently to make sure there's no chance of a leak

    aimee_toodlydoo hi i'm going away to central Australia with school in late june and my period is also due during the 10 days of the camp (it is predicted to come on the second last day but i don't trust my uterus) i have a hard enough time being at home with having a period with all the cramps and other side effects of being a women and was wanting to know if there are any way to make it easier on the camp and what to do with disposing of the used pads if there are no bins/toilets as the trip will be all camp sites and long bus rides and i'm scared my pants will too become a red land down under there are no teachers i feel comfortable enough to tell in my colour group and won't be able to tell the other teachers that i trust as we are in different groups and must keep to the teachers in the groups thanks

    the key will be making sure that you're prepared. So, that means taking enough supplies, plus extras. Also take some spare undies,just in case. Make sure you always have in your bag in the bus, or in your pocket, a spare pad or tampon so that you can change whenever you stop at a toilet, and also use panty liners with your tampons. Most of the camp grounds you'll visit will have toilets with sanitary bins, but for other times, put your used products into a zip lock bag, or a disposable bag they use for used nappies. There are disposable bags available in the same aisle as the pads for used sanitary products. Perhaps take some baby wipes too so that you can do a quick clean up where ever you are

    awesomegirl689 so i really need some answers about my breasts how do you know there still growing my nipples are big my not pointy and i get lumps before my period does that mean there growing bigger ? how do you know there still growing ? do they grow before or after or during you're period please give me some proper answers please
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your breasts begin to grow at the beginning of puberty, and continue to grow until your early twenties - so you see there is still lots of time for things to still happen. In that time they will become bigger, their shape change, the nipples change and they'll become heavier and rounder rather than pointy. This is happening slowly all the time, but there might be times when they'll have a bit of a growth spurt. This happens at different rates for all of us

    an intact hymen is a sign that a girl hasn't had sex. But leading an active lifestyle, riding bikes, horses etc can naturally damage the hymen so if you were to look for it, you might think that that girl had had sex. For most girls, the hymen will stretch and make way for the tampon, so whether or not you're a virgin doesn't matter for a tampon to be used properly. But some women feel strongly that virgins shouldn't use tampons until after they're married but ultimately it comes down to a personal choice

    Jaymee Deane Hi are your periods always meant to be painful
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    not everyone will have painful periods, and it tends to be that the heavier your period, the more likely you'll be to have a painful period. Most often, if your period is painful, it's only on the one or two days it's heaviest. A dull ache is more likely to happen with perhaps a bit of back ache - you can use simple analgesics and a heat pack - Libra sell heat packs that you can stick onto your skin so they become totally portable - great for school

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it sounds like an infection so you need to see your local doctor to get it sorted out. Just tell your mum where your problem is, but not the details, I'm sure she'll be happy with that, and your doctor has to keep your visit private

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    everyone goes through times when they feel alone, that their friends don't understand, and it's more likely to happen during puberty when things are changing so quickly. But it's up to you to make the first step in fixing things. Think about who you like to hang out with, and talk to them. Perhaps join some new groups, to make new friends, and talk to your mum about how you're feeling too

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your mum is expecting you to get your period, she's just probably waiting for you to tell her when it actually starts. So think of a way that you'd be most comfortable to tell her what's happened, maybe you could ask her to get you some supplies, that would start the conversation

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it sounds like you have an infection of some sort, which needs to be sorted by your local doctor. So, you just need to tell mum you think you've got an infection and need to go to the doctors, she doesn't need to know the details, and you can go into the doctors by yourself, and the doctor has to respect your privacy

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    to limit the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome, it's recommended that you replace your tampon after 4-6 hours, so if you use them overnight, then you'd need to get up to change them

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    make sure that you're prepared by keeping in your bag a spare Libra pad or tampon and on the days you're wondering if your period is going to come, use your Libra panty liners to keep you protected. If it happens before you get your spare stock together, then you can either ask a friend for help, or go to the office or sick bay where there will be spare supplies

    this might be a sign that your body is getting ready for a period, but a more definite sign is the vaginal mucous. It changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white colour. The stomach pains can be caused by other things. But 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

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it can take a couple of years for your period to totally sort itself out, so don't stress. Some women never get regular periods, it doesn't mean anything bad. Try keeping a record of when your period comes and for how long it lasts so that you can see a pattern, remember that the calender months aren't even so it's not going to come on the same day each month, it's more about counting the days between your periods
