    blue3 Hi I always like to buy pads with wings for the extra protection on the sides but sometimes I find that the wings don't stick correctly or they don't stay in place while I wear it for say 3 hours. Once I checked and one wing came completely off. I have tried different types of underwear and I use tight ones but it doesn't make a difference. I'm not rushing when putting them on either but it still doesn't help and I have tried many brands including Libra. Would it be wiser for me to buy pads without wings or is there a reason that wings seem to unstick for me sometimes?

    sometimes the wings don't stick on as well as they could if you don't stretch out the material of your undies a bit as you put the wings on, or the material of your undies is shiny, stopping the glue from sticking, but they're the main reasons why they don't stick, unless the wing is rubbing up against something once it's on, like the seam of outer pants etc. If the wings don't seem to be working for you, despite what you're trying, then may you'd be better off just buying the pads without wings and seeing how that goes

    Anonymous user I am turning 14 next month and I still haven't had my period. I have asked my mum and she said she got hers when she was 13. I am worried because all of my friends have had theirs and I havent
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    although the average age to get your period is 12, some girls don't get their period until they're about 14 or 15, it doesn't mean anything good or bad, it's just how your body runs things. Look for the signs of your body getting ready, like vaginal mucous, especially when it changes from the yellowish colour to the clear or white colour, and your pubic hair grows all the way from the front through to the back. 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

    Anonymous user Hi, I'm 14 and I've been getting vaginal discharge everyday for around 1 year and a half. I still haven't had my period and the discharge is clear or whiteish. I usually have to change my underwear throughout the day and it gets really annoying and makes me less confident. It's usually heavier after I've been doing netball or something physical and active. Please help Thanks

    it sounds like your body is pretty close to getting a period, but no one can tell you the exact time. It's a case of just being prepared. This means using a panty liner every day and by keeping a spare pad in your bag, just in case. The panty liners will also help to keep youfeeling fresh and dry from normal vaginal mucous. If you have quite a heavy mucous loss, you could use the Libra Double Liners, which means you can peel one layer off and then you're left with a fresh dry new one, perfect for days when you're more active. You can have this loss for a couple of years before your period starts, so don't stress, your hormones are changing, other wise you wouldn't have this type of discharge anyway

    Kate-puberty I'm 13. I hit puberty at the age of 11. I haven't had my period but my mum and sister had theirs when they were 12. Is there something wrong with me?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    no, there's nothing wrong with you, your body is just doing things at its own pace. Even though you started to change when you were 11, your body is taking its time to get completely organised, and that's fine and normal. It might be that you take after the women on your dad's side of the family rather than your mothers. 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

    even though you might not feel as comfortable talking to your dad about these things, you might find that he's prepared for it if you do want to talk. Or maybe there's an aunt or older cousin you could talk to. The basics are really covered on the site, and a lot of having your period is making sure you have good quality supplies, like Libra, and that you're prepared. So that would mean using your panty liners on the days between your period and keeping a spare pad in your bag, just in case. You need to work out to how you're going to get your supplies. Do you buy them yourself or add them to the weekly shopping list etc. Have a look through the site, see what the other girls are talking about, there's lots of help there, and of course, if you get stuck, you can talk to me

    smitjor2 Is it better to use a tampon or a pad??
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this is totally a personal choice thing. Most girls start off using pads, so that they can get used to their period, and learn what their flow is like. Then they might change to tampons, or a combination of both tampons and pads, especially if they do sports. But some women choose to always use pads. There's nothing right or wrong about these decisions, it's just about what works for you

    mylifeassinead WHEN WILL I GET MY PERIOD??? :(
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    no one can give you a definite date for this, it's all about looking for the signs, and then just waiting and being ready. So, your body changes, usually when you're about 12, your breasts start to grow, you get pubic and underarm hair, and you start to get vaginal mucous. This mucous usually starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a white or clear loss. When this happens, plus the pubic hair goes all the way through to the back, then that's a really positive sign that your body is getting ready for a period. You can have these signs for a couple of years before anything happens, so you need to make sure that you're prepared. This means using your Libra panty liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. You could ask mum when she got her period as that may give you an idea for when it might happen for you

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it can take time for your period to totally sort itself out, for some girls this might be a couple of years. It's a good idea to do as you're doing, keep a diary of when your period comes and for how long it lasts, and to remember that not everyone's period will come every 28days. If you think that you need added iron in your diet, have a look at what you're eating. The easiest way to increase your iron levels is to eat red meat, maybe talk to mum about this. You can always take supplements if you like, but rather than assuming you have low iron, if you're worried, why not go to the doctor and have your levels tested

    Anonymous user Is it normal to still have discharge even know I've had my period for 5 months?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, this is totally normal. The vaginal mucous is controlled by your hormones, so it will keep coming, even when you have your period. It just changes its consistency depending on what your hormone levels are doing. It might be clear and runny, thick and white, or mixed in with period blood

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    hotties are designed to be stuck onto your skin over the sore spots that might happen when you have your period. But, if you want to use them at other times, then that's fine too

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    this is a bit of old blood mixed in with normal vaginal mucous. There isn't very much which is why you only really see it when you go to wipe yourself. It's a sign that your body is getting ready for a proper period, that your hormone levels are changing, but aren't quite up to a period - yet. When blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown, or even black colour. Use your Libra liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    I wouldn't tell him anything, I think that might embaress him and make things uncomfortable. I'd just keep on as you are, talking more and more, and getting more and more comfortable with each other. Things will just naturally progress without you having to do anything special. Remember that friendship is one of the best basis for a relationship

    mastercoco Hey! So I have a prob, yesterday I just mastubated (laying my hands under my vigina with my stomach down on the bed and humping) and today my vigina feels weird like I have to rub it for it to stop feeling weirds I can't explain it, I looked at it and saw slimy stuff down there What is going on? Am I doing something wrong? And what dose this mean/ tryingnto tell me?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    when you masturbate, you produce more vaginal mucous and this is what you're seeing, it's totally normal. The 'weird' feeling is just that you've stimulated the area, maybe even irritated it a bit, like when you rub any other part of your body. It doesn't mean anything bad, and it will pass really quickly

    blackllamaaa04 Hi, I'm in year six and I havent got my period yet. My friend has and we are around the same age. I have had a LOT of discharge these past few days. Does it mean my first egg will leave son?? (By the way I know a lot about periods)
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the average age to get your period is about 12, but it's an average, so this means that some girls will be older, some younger, and it's not something that we can control or be exact about. You could ask mum what age she was when she got her first period, otherwise you just have to go by the signs, like pubic and underarm hair and vaginal mucous. When the pubic hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back, and the vaginal mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white colour, then these are really positive signs. 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
    the signs that your body is getting ready for a period include your breasts growing, pubic and underarm hair, and vaginal mucous. The pubic hair starts off at the front, and then as your body becomes more ready, it goes all the way through to the back. Vaginal mucous usually starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour - it is controlled by your hormones. Often you have about a year of this yellowish loss before it changes. Use your Libra liners to keep you feeling fresh and dry, and put  spare Libra pad into your bag, just in case

    signs that your body is getting ready for a period include pubic and underarm hair, your breasts growing and vaginal mucous. The vaginal mucous usually starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour, this usually happens after about a year. To keep yourself fresh and protected, you'd use your Libra liners and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. No one can tell you when or where your period will start, but you have to just keep on living your life as normal, but just be prepared. If you felt quite damp then you'd go and check things out in the toilets. Chances are that you won't get your first period when you're swimming

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    the average to get your period is about 12 or 13, so most of us follow along with this average therefore taking after lots of women. But sometimes women mature more quickly and get their periods earlier, or later, and don't get their period until they're about 15, so if your mum happened to have her period starting later, then it wouldn't be a surprise if this happened to you too. But, you can take after the women on your mum's side of the family, or your dad's

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    if there was enough loss to soak through your undies, then it well might have been your first period, but they usually last for a few days. So if yours only lasted for the one, then it might be coming again soon. So, you need to use your Libra liners to be prepared and to keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. It can take a bit of time for everything to become regular

    libragirl@01 Ok so I think I've been having discharge...? I'm not too sure though cos I think it's what it is - it's like white patch or yellow sometimes and it just stinks, and at the end of the day, my underwear would be quite dirty. Also, I think my vagina would always feel wet like I accidentally peed or something. I've been trying to wear leggings and stuff now instead of shorts and skirts because I'm just really conscious of the smell and it feels like I'm sweating down there and I just hate it. Whatever it is I have to sit cross legged whenever I'm sitting in class cos I can just smell it and it's like whewww. Is that normal? Also, should I wear liners or pads or tampons or something? I hadn't have my period yet by the way. Thanks <3

    vaginal mucous starts off a yellowish colour, and then as your hormones change it becomes clear or white. You can use your Libra liners to keep you fresh and dry, change them whenever you feel damp or feel that there's a smell. It's normal for your vaginal mucous to have a musky smell, but for some girls it takes a bit of time to get used to this smell. Washing between your legs morning and night, using your liners, will all help to keep you fresh and the odour to a minimum

    Anonymous user Hello, I have had my period since I was 10 years old. My sister who is 20 years old, has a jelly like discharge prior and after P.M.S. I on the other hand do-not have this. I am wondering if it is normal or abnormal not to have jelly like discharge? Thanks :)
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this is just clear vaginal mucous that has clumped. Each woman will produce vaginal mucous that is either clear or white, it's controlled by your hormones. But the amount we produce can differ between women, so your sister is just producing more at this particular part of her cycle, it's totally normal and doesn't mean anything bad
