    silverstream So The year after kinder I became friends with this guy and he used to be with me a lot and ask me to play with him and I liked him so my 2 year older cousin gave me a note she told me to give it to him it said i love you and he walked off I don't think I talked to him after that then at the end of the year I moved state for five years and I came back to a different primary school now I'm in high school this year I started and I've been thinking about him and I sent him a message 9 weeks ago on Instagram saying remember me he has not replied and I want to say something to him so he will talk what do I say someone help, btw I don't go to school with him

    what happened with this guy initially happened so long ago, that I really don't think he'll remember it, especially as you've been away for quite a while. What they say, out of sight, out of mind, is very true. Lots of changes have happened to you both over this time, and I think that the fact that he hasn't responded to your message tells you that he's not interested. Don't chase him, if it's meant to happen, it will. Focus instead on the people around you who you can get to know and make a connection there. It's fine and normal to have a little fantasy about this guy from the past, and how things might happen, but it's just that, a lovely fantasy

    Emmapayton Hi. So I've been reading through this site and just wanting to have my own question answered so I dont pick anything up wrong! I'm 13 and all my friends have there period but me!!! I have had the 'signs'. Hair 'down there', clear fluid form my vagina, I think my Brest have been growing! But I little arm out hair!! I really want to know when I'm going to get my Period so I can be like my friends. My mum got her period when she was like 11 and a half. Is there any way I can speed things up! PLEASE HELP XX

    you certainly sound like you've got all the signs that your body is getting ready, and now it's just a case of waiting, as frustrating as that is! Not having underarm hair isn't really as important as having the pubic hair, especially when it goes all the way from the front through to the back. Now it's just a case of waiting and making 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. Even though most girls take after their mums, you can take after the females on your dad's side, so maybe that explains why your period didn't come at age 11. It's still normal to not have your period until age 15, so you really don't need to worry, it will happen

    DeletedProfile hi, I'm 16 and I've been using pads for the past few years. I want to start using tampons but my mom doesn't want me to, however, I plan on talking to her about it. I have a concern about my flow, though. I am a bit bigger so I use overnight pads through my three day period. I consider my period to be light because I don't really "feel" it but I guess my period can be considered heavy because of the overnight pads. I don't bleed through my pads, nor do I have to change every hour. I do experience occasional leakage but it's nothing major, just super small stains. Would this be considered a heavy flow? And, what kind of absorbancy for tampons would be recommended? Thank you!! :D
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you don't say how often you actually change your pads, and the overnight pads tend to hold a bit more cause they're a bit thicker as they're designed to stay in place a bit longer. When you change to tampons, it will be a bit of trial and error, cause as you first learn to insert them, you can make mistakes and still get a bit of leakage. So, I would recommend using your lighter pads with your tampons, at least to start off with, just to avoid accidents. Tampons also come in different absorbencies, so you can try the regular first, and perhaps the super absorbent on your heavier days, and if you feel that your flow is very heavy, you can use a pad as well. It's all a bit of trial and error to start off with

    Anonymous user Hi, a couple of days ago I got a flow of blood, or my first period, but it was only that flow and nothing after. It only lasted one day and it was only one flow then nothing. I am a bit confused as they are meant to last 3-7 days. Thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    when you first get your period, it can be a really short one, almost like a practice. It shows that your body knows what to do, but is still sorting itself out. Some women who have light periods do only have them for a few days, and it's still considered normal, we're all a bit different. Just 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

    it's not at all uncommon in the first couple of years of getting your period for it to be late or delayed totally, it doesn't mean anything bad, it's just your body sorting itself out. Other things can affect your period, like losing weight, being unwell, or stress, but it all sorts itself out after a bit of time

    Anonymous user When I get my period who is the first person I should tell. Or should I just tell no one and keep it to myself?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    usually the first people you tell are either your bestie or your mum (or sometimes your sister especially if she's older and already has her period) But it really doesn't matter who you do or don't tell, it's totally up to what makes you feel comfortable. Mind you, it's great to let your mum know cause this is something that she knows is going to happen and is probably just waiting for you to tell her when it does, plus she can help to buy your supplies

    Mangocake23 Hi, im 12 and i got my first period on January 21st it was dark brown, it lasted for five days and it was light and i never got it again until today, the 9th of July i was wondering is it normal if my period is dark brown and really light? x
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    when blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown, or even black colour. So, what you saw with your period, with the darker brown blood, was a light period that had time for the blood to change colour. This is totally normal, and it might stay like this, or it might, as the months go by, become heavier. For some girls it can take over a year for their periods to totally sort themselves out, so don't stress

    Anonymous user I am almost 15 and I just got my period I didn't think of anything when it first happened cause I never had any pain but then I had pains once I knew I think it was a mind thing? I also am worried for when I get it a second time? The first time was 9 days Will it always be that long?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    we're all a little individual so how long your period lasts can vary, but it's normal for it to last for 5-10 days, but in the first year or so, when it's still sorting itself out, it can last longer or shorter, and it means nothing at all. So, just cause it's 9 days the first time doesn't mean that it's going to stay like this. Some girls get some abdominal pain in the days leading up to their period, others get it a couple of days into their period when their flow is heavier, and some girls get no pain or discomfit at all. But as you said, some of it is a little bit in the mind, if you focus on how much pain you might be feeling, then it always feels worse, rather than trying to keep busy and keep your mind off things. Make sure that you're prepared for when your next period comes by using your libra panty liners every day and by keeping a spare libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user When you have lots of discharge, does that mean your period is coming soon?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    as your body gets closer to having a period, you see lots of changes. Your breasts grow, you get hair under you arms and around your pubic area, and you start to get vaginal mucous. This mucous starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour - this is a really positive  sign. It can take 1-2 years for this to happen, 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
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you've done the pregnancy test properly and they say that you're not pregnant, then this should be true. Your period can be irregular for lots of reasons, stress, changes in diet, being unwell, so you just need to give it time to sort itself out. If you are in a sexual relationship, then you really need to make sure that you don't become pregnant, and this means condoms

    it can take a while for you to get your head around all the changes that are happening to your body, but don't stress, you're not alone. Just make sure that you've got all the supplies that you may need and that you keep some spare Libra pads and liners in your bag, just in case. Keep a record in your diary as to when your period comes and how long it lasts so that you can see a pattern emerging. Remember too that it can take over 12 monts for your body to totally sort itself out, so be patient

    Anonymous user I went swimming today with my school and I am almost the only one with hair down there. Only 2 of my friends have it. I'm really embarrassed about it and I'm 11 years old also
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it can be a bit embaressing to be the one who seems 'different' to the other girls around you, but deep down, your friends will be a bit jealous of how your body is maturing more quickly than theirs. Age 11 is a normal age for changes to start, even though for most girls start at around age 12. If you act in a matter of fact way, change quickly when you're at swimming but without making a scene, this sets the scene for the girls around you - that you know what's happening to you is normal, you accept it, and you're actually proud that your body knows what to do - they don't need to know that really inside your head you're still a bit confused by it all. If these changes are happening, you might like to talk to mum about being prepared and getting some libra liners for your undies, and even some libra pads. Have a look around the site for some more information

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you've taken pregnancy tests twice and they're negative, then you're not pregnant, your period is just delayed, maybe from stress. If you're still concerned re pregnancy, the only definite way to know is by a blood test which you can have done at the doctors - it's results are confidential. Your period can be delayed or miss altogether for no reason at all, but illness, stress, loss of weight are also reasons

    Adelaidey Hello, someone from LG told me to email you. On the 25th of April, ANZAC day, i got my period. I havent had it since. For the last few days, i have been getting white really stick stuff in my underwear but it was ever couple of hours and smelt like PVA glue. But today i did get my period. I was starting to get worried because i hadn't had it for about 2 mouths, but also i don't want to bring the topic up with my mum. Do you think i am ok ? Thankyou so much for your time. Xoxo
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yep, you're totally fine. The clear gluey stuff was normal vaginal mucous, you can use your libra liners to protect yourself from this, and the delay in your period is totally normal, it can happen for no reason at all, especially in the first 12 months

    any woman can have a period that's late, or misses the month all together, it doesn't mean anything bad. And if you know that you can't be pregnant, then there's no stress.

    everyone finds their period a bit confusing when it first starts, especially as it can take a couple of years to sort itself out. So, mark in your diary when it comes and how long it lasts for, and you'll start to see a pattern. 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

    no, but your vaginal mucous can. It's starts off as a yellowish or white colour and then changes to clear/white. You can have this for a couple of years before your period starts
