    Anonymous user The doctors suspect I have endometriosis and have prescribed me with Naproxen but it does literally nothing for the pains. The doctor has told me he will book in some scans but it's been almost 3 months and nothing has happened. The pain gets to the point where I will be bedridden for days and my family can't afford to go private to get faster treatment. Do you think that if I go into the emergency room on a bad day it may speed things up at all?

    you need to go back to the doctor who prescribed the Naproxen, and let them know that this particular tablet isn't doing the job for you, that way, knowing your history, they'll be able to prescribe something different for you. Emergency departments prefer you to use your local GP's rather than use them as your GP

    when blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown or black colour. So, what you're seeing is blood that has had time to change colour, so a slow light flow. This is a part of your period, just a light one. So what you're doing, using your Libra panty liners every day etc, is exactly right. Now just add to your bag a spare Libra pad, for when your period becomes heavier

    Anonymous user So last night around 9 i got my first period. But throughout today and night i haven't had any more bleeding. I've only bled once. I'm really confused and i dont know if somethings wrong with me?

    this is totally normal so don't stress. Your period often starts off this way. just make sure that you're protected by using your Libra pantyliners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Your body has shown that it knows what to do, now it just needs time to sort itself out into a routine

    moustache47 Hi everyone, I just have one question and (or) if it has anything to do with periods. I am getting this white stuff on my underwear, it is almost like dried white paint and everyone time I go to the loo I see it! Also i get this clear sticky fluid too on my panties. I get the white stuff more than the clear sticky fluid. Is this normal? BTW I am 12

    when your body is getting ready for your periods, it starts to produce vaginal mucous. This starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour. So, what you're seeing is totally normal, and your body way of showing that it is getting ready for a period so 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

    it sounds like your body is really trying to have a period, so it could happen any day. Make sure that you're prepared by using your Libra panty liners everyday and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user Hi Libra Girl nurse, For the last few days I have been having severe pain that matches PMS symptoms but I haven't yet got my first period yet. I having been having lower bowel (and extra bloating) and back pain and headaches and nausea and it hasn't stopped much; as soon as I wake up in the morning (which has been about an hour earlier than normal) I have it and I can't get back to sleep. Is this normal and does this mean my period is coming?! I am on holidays at the moment and so I can laze around or exercise whenever I want, but when I go back to school if I have pain this bad I think my marks might drop... So I would really appreciatce an answer to whether other girls have gone through the same thing, and some ways to reduce the pain/deal with it ^_~ Thanks, from "anonymous" ^_~

    the best way to learn how to masturbate, is to just use your fingers and touching yourself. That way you can learn what your body does and doesn't like. Not every day is a good day for masturbating, so you need to just wait until you're really in the mood. As to sex being painful, this is most commonly caused by things being rushed and neither partner really knowing what to do. So again, if you can masturbate successfully, it means that you know what you do and don't like and can tell your partner. The other thing is trust and feelings for your partner, without those being there, it's hard for the good feelings to really flow

    Anonymous user I'm super afraid to get my period but I want it and I took a test and it says it will take 6-12 months to get my period and I really want it now. Am I getting to excited should I just relax or should I tell my mum I want to have the talk about puberty and periods so I know what to do. PLEASE HELP. WHICH ONE?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's normal to be both excited and nervous about your period coming, but your period will only come when your body is ready, and no matter how much you want it to come, it's not under our control. So the best thing is to try and relax and just let things happen. Read all about what happens on the site, and have a talk to your mum

    Anonymous user I started getting my period in about June of 2014 and I know that your period isn't really regular for the first couple of years but I'm a little worried because my period is exactly 16 weeks late today. I have tried asking mum to take me to the doctors 3 times now but she keeps telling me it's because I'm young (I'm 14) but my mum is not the type to take precaution and I don't know what to do. This is probably only happening because I'm young but I was still wondering what are some reasons this could be happening?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    if there is no chance of you being pregnant, then there's nothing to be worried about and you can just wait until your period sorts itself out again. Even the most regular of periods can have times when it is late or misses for a month or two. This is more likely to happen if you've been unwell, lost weight, been stressed etc but the most common reason is no reason at all. Make sure you use your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case, and just give it time

    Anonymous user Hello Libra Girl Nurse! I was looking at the tampon products and i was wondering what the difference between a regular tampon and a super tampon is? Thanks!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    a regular tampon is used for most girls/women's periods, as it's enough to catch their flow. For heavier periods, or on the couple of days when your period might be at it's heaviest, you use the super tampons. If your tampons last 4-6 hours using the regulars, then that's fine

    AXCS123 How do I tell my Mum that I need the supplies
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    how about finding an ad for Libra products in a magazine or on the computer, and start the conversation from there, saying something like 'they're the ones I like'. Or you could go to the shops with her on her next stock up and ask to put some of your supplies in the trolley

    Toxicqueen655 How do I know when to start wearing a bra
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    bras are designed to give your breasts support, so you start to use them when you feel uncomfortable as your breasts are growing - when you run they might bounce and be sore, or you just might not like the movement. Often you use a crop top to start off with for support and comfort, as this will fit better as your breasts are still changing

    along with the blood of your period, you also lose normal vaginal mucous.

    Pytbrenda How long does a period take to be over ? And why do I get mine on different days ?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your first period can take a number of months to totally sort itself out, so it's not at all uncommon for it to be irregular. Your period can last 7-10 days and even stop and start a bit - and it's all considered normal. Start counting the days between your period from the start of one period to the start of the next one. Use your Libra panty liners in between your heavier days so that you know that you're protected

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    Find a quiet private time and start the conversation with something else, like maybe some of the girls at school have their period, and then you can bring up the topic of when she got her period. I'm sure she'll be really happy to be asked

    Anonymous user My mom's told me that I may have my period for a while. Now, its finally happened, and I am absolutally terrified. I've never felt comfortable telling my mom about my changes, and she guessed I started going through puberty 2 years after I actually did. It makes me feel extremely uncomfotable, and I have very low self confidence, which doesn't help. I am almost 14, and my mom is currently having her period and very irratiable. I am afraid what her reaction will be if I tell her. My little sister will tease me harshly if she finds out. My parents are divorced, and my dad lives far away with his new wife, who I unfortunately have to visit routinely. My father also has been teasing me about puberty and when I am going to get my period. He has made me promise to tell him when I get it, but also insists on throwing a party and invitiing family and friends. I do not want this to happen! I don't know what to do. I'm freaking out. I don't know anyone I can talk to! I'm anti-social and only have one friend, whom never talks with me about this kind of stuff, and never wants to. I've been personally dreading my period, and now its happened! I don't know what to do, or who to tell, and how. Should I just not tell anyone? Help!
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    you'll need to tell your mum that you have your period, she knows that it's going to happen so she's expecting so really, half the work is done. Just choose a quite private time and say you've got something to tell her. It doesn't need to be a discussion, just letting her know that it's happened, plus you'll need to let her know which Libra products you'll need. It really does take two to fight, so if she is a bit grumpy, you don't need to be grumpy or irritable too - then a fight just can't happen. As to your little sister, ask your mum to not tell her, but she'll find out eventually. Your sister wants a response from you, that's why she teases. The most frustrating thing for your sister would be for you to NOT respond to her teasing, to just smile and walk away, and remind her perhaps that this will be happening to her too one day.
    Hopefully your dad is joking about telling people, but just in case you need to let him know how you feel - perhaps talk to his new wife about this, she would be flattered to think that you felt that you could talk to her and it might help the relationship between you.
    As to feeling that you are anti social and have low self esteem, these are things that you need to think about dealing with. The anti social tag is because of the low esteem. Why not talk to one of the teachers at school or the councillor - they're there to help, and even if you're not comfortable talking with one of them, they'll be able to find some with whom you do get on. The idea of speaking to a councillor is to find and learn strategies to help you feel that you can cope with life and all that it throws at you, coping mechanisms which you can use for the rest of you life, so I strongly recommend you have a think about giving it a try

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    Of course you shouldn't quit just cause you have your period! Good for you. Talk to mum about going to the local chemist and talking to the pharmacist there for something that will help without making you drowsy - there are lots of different medications available for period pain

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    use a heat pack when you're at home, and when you're out, Libra sell stick on heat packs that last for hours. Gentle stretches help too, and making sure that you stay well hydrated. There are specific medications for period pains, so why not talk to mum about going to your local chemist and talking to the pharmacist as to what would be a suitable one for you

    This sounds like a practice period, so your body knows what to do but is still getting organised. This is totally normal and what you need to do is to make sure that you're prepared by using your Libra panty liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you'll know that you have your period cause you'll see blood and mucous on the toilet paper when you wipe yourself and blood and mucous in your undies. When you have signs that makes you think that your body is getting ready for your period, use your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Have a look around the site for some more information about the changes that will be happening as your body changes
