    Anonymous user i want to ask that in the early 1900's, girls used to hide their period news from boys but why nowadays boys know all about it?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    I think you'll find that even in your parents or grandparents days, guys weren't really aware (nor do I think they wanted to be aware) of the normal processes of a woman's body. This knowledge and awareness has changed in the last 20 years, and you'll still find many cultures/countries, where this knowledge is still restricted. It's a two way street though, just as guys might not be as aware of these personal aspects of a woman's body, there would be things about guys that would be hidden from us, not encouraged to be spoken about

    Anonymous user Hi I'm 23 and getting really bad period pain. I've tried taking nurofen period pain to help with the pain but it still hurts. Is there anything else I can try? The pain is so bad at times I can hardly walk. I've recently stopped the depo shot and starting regular periods again. But i never had period pain before going on needle.

    stomach cramps can be a side effect of depo, and it can take a number of months for your cycle to totally get back to normal. For period pain there are other pain medications available, why not ask at your local chemist for some advice. The other things to try are stretching exercises, and heat, Libra make stick on heat packs that can be used at work/school and wheat packs can be heated up at home. Other things to think about are acupuncture, herbal medicine and Chinese Medicine. A lot of it is a bit of trial and error

    Anonymous user Hello There! I started my period last year in the middle of December but ever since then I've been getting my period every 2 weeks instead of once a month. I also get them for 7 days straight heavy. Is there something going wrong down there and should I seek further help? I have never had cramps or any pain so I think I'm alright. Thank you xo

    it can take up to a couple of years for some women's periods to sort themselves out, so it might just be a case of leaving things for a bit loner and seeing if it sorts itself out. If it's really worrying you then of course you could talk to mum about this and go and see your local doctor. It's always a good idea when you feel that you have problem periods that you keep a detailed diary of your period, when it comes, how long it stays etc so that it's written proof of what you're going through

    Anonymous user What would happen if I had no pad and got my period at school and I don't want to tell me teachers/friends ?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you could probably fold up some toilet paper and put this into your undies to help prevent leakage, but why put yourself through this? It would be a really good idea to get yourself organised now by putting some Libra pads into your bag, just in case, and by using your Libra panty liners every day. Your friends would always help you if they could, and the school office or nurse would have some spare supplies for when girls forget their own

    sorry, but I don't have anything to do with the Libra packs. You could either just leave it a bit longer to see if it comes, or go to the 'contact us' part of the site, and leave a message

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's normal for when your period to first start, for it to be a bit irregular. It can either just be irregular, or like yours, start, and then stops. It's all fine. Your body will start again when it's ready, you just have to trust it. And use your Libra panty liners every day, just in case. The white loss is normal vaginal mucous which is caused by your hormones. It shows that your body is doing the right things, and the loss can be white, or clear, thin or thick

    Anonymous user Hi is it ok for discharge to be a bit yellow as i am really worried?? I haven't got my period yet.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    as your body changes, begins to mature, the vaginal discharge you'll have is a yellowish colour. As your hormones change, it becomes more clear or white. So what you're seeing is the the first part of the change. Use your libra panty liners to keep you fresh and dry if you like

    daisy2011 ok so this is kind of 2 questions 1. I first got my period at the start of 2015 and had it 2/3 times and my last one was due a week ago what should I do I was really angry last week? 2. I think my brother knows and he keeps teasing me and I really hate it so much I start yelling at him and he mocks me even more. Help? thanks xx
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    some people are more emotional when their period is about to come, it's due to the change in hormones, plus if you've only just started to get your period, it's a more emotional time as lots of things are happening in your life. It doesn't really matter if your brother knows you have your period, eventually he'll assume you do, even if it's not a conversation you've ever had. He has to learn about this side of life too, and also what sort of comments are appropriate, so maybe you need to have a talk with mum about this so that she can talk to him. As for losing your cool with him, siblings know how to push your buttons, so you're the one who has to step back, and bite your tongue, as hard as that is, so if he starts again, just leave the room so that you can cool off. A brother wouldn't be a brother unless he could stir you up, so try not to let him see that he's got to you

    Anonymous user hi LG i was just wondering if I'll get my period soon because I've had discharge for almost 6 months now and recently it's changed in texture and there's a lot more of it and i just want to be prepared for it. Also i want to wear pantiliners but my mum thinks they're just for lbl and i would explain but i feel embarrassed because I can't talk to my mum so i went to the store and bought some but i'm too scared to use them because she'll see the wrappers in the bin. what should i do??? And one last thing, when will the Libra Girl starter pack be here? because I need somewhere to store my stuff and i want to take it to school. I haven't had the 'talk' yet if it helps but my sister says I will really soon probably (don't know if that helped but whatever). thanks xxx

    the Libra liners are actually designed for vaginal mucous or light periods, not really for lbl. They're a great thing to use when you're waiting for your period to start, as they make sure that you're protected, plus they keep you feeling fresh and dry, so perhaps talk to mum about this again, or show her the page on the website which has all the different styles of liners on it. I'd put a spare Libra pad into your bag, just in case your period starts so that you know that you're covered. You can have the discharge for a couple of years before your period starts. As for the starter pack, sorry, but I don't have anything to do with their delivery, but it usually does take a few weeks, and remember too that we've had easter so it affects the post

    RainbowSugerz Hey there, I just wanted to ask, I have most of the signs of getting my period (I only have discharge) and not that I want to get my period but I'm just not sure why I'm not if I have the signs.
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your body works at it's own rate, it's not something that can be controlled from the outside, so you just have to be patient with it and just wait. Your period will come when it's ready, but in the mean time, 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. The discharge is a really positive sign, but also look for your pubic hair thickening up and going all the way through to the back and your breasts growing

    12blue Hi, I've had my period for several years now and they normally last for up to 5-6 days long. But my period this month is different. I've had it for 9 days already and it's showing no signs of stopping. Wen it first started the blood was brown sometimes nearly black and gluggy but now it's red. It's heavy flow then light flow then heavy again. It's really weird and I'm really worried. What should I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it sounds like you've actually had two periods back to back, the first one started to finish, thats why the blood changed to dark brown/black, and then it started again. It doesn't mean anything bad, it's just your hormones getting confused this month. Give them some time and they'll be back on track again

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your period can miss a month for no reason at all, and then the next month it's back, or it might come late. It doesnt mean anything bad, it just happens, especially in the first few years. Other things can affect your period, like illness, weight changes, stress, but then they sort themselves out and it all goes back to normal. So don't stress, use your Libra liners every day in case your period starts, and make sure you take some spare Libra pads/tampons in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    knowing when your mum got her period is a good start, but you need to look for the other signs. So this would be things like your pubic hair thickening up and going all the way through to the back, your breasts growing, and vaginal mucous, which starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour. You can have this mucous for a couple of years before your period starts. Tummy cramps aren't a great sign cause they can be caused by lots of other things

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    no one can give you an exact time, we all have to just go on the signs, like your pubic hair thickening and going all the way through to the back, your breasts growing, and of course vaginal mucous. The mucous usually starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a white or clear colour, that's a really positive sign that your body is close to a period. Use your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. As for camp, talk to mum about organising a small supply to take with you,just in case your period starts, like your Libra pads, some wipes, and some bags to put your used products in, like nappy bags, that way you know that you're covered

    LILYBuB Hi LG, so I have had my period for about 8 months and evert imp I get it, it starts off quite heavy then after 2-3 days it just stops for about a day then comes back even heavier and I don't know why I have talked to my mum and she said that she has no idea. Is there something wrong with me? If so what do I do? From Lily.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    there's nothing wrong with you, especially if it's like this every period, it's all got to do with your hormone levels, cause these are what cause our periods. So your levels must rise, drop a bit, and then rise again. Annoying, but not indicative of a problem. If it's something that really worries you, then you could talk to mum about going to see a doctor who specialises in Chinese Medicine as they often have a lot of success with problem periods

    12blue Hi, I've had my period for several years now, but this month it is going for a lot longer then what it normally does. Most of the time my periods go for 5-6 days but this one has been going 9 days now and showing no signs of stopping. I'm really worried. It's a stop start flow as well. When it started the blood was brown sometimes almost black, but it's red now. I'm really worried it's never been like this before what should I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    your body can throw out an unusual period for no reason at all, and then it just sorts itself out again. The blood that was dark brown or almost black is old blood, blood that has had time to change colour, so it shows a very slow flow, like at the beginning or end of a period, so I'd say that you've had a period, it's almost stopped, and then your hormones have surged again and it's resulted in another period, annoying, but it doesn't mean anything bad, it should just settle by itself

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I think that you should talk to mum, and organise to take some 'just in case' supplies with you, like Libra pads and some wipes, so that you know that you'll be covered in case your period comes. You should also take some bags to put your used stuff in, like nappy bags, so that you know that you're prepared, and that's the important thing when it comes to your period, being prepared. In the mean time, use your Libra liners every day to make sure that you're protected, and to also make you feel fresh and dry. If you use a good quality pad like Libra, then they are very comfortable, but have a look through the website as there are lots of different styles available so that you can find the perfect fit

    Anonymous user Well today i went to the toilet and yeah did my business but when i wiped there was a bit of blood on the toilet paper and im not sure if it was my period or not how do i tell if it was my period or if i was just bleeding? I have been getting discharge for awhile and ive had other signs that i will be getting my period soon though so if you could help that would be great thanks.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if it was your period, then the blood would keep on coming and not just be on the toilet paper. So, it's either from your vagina, and in that case it's called spotting, like your body's getting ready for a period but isn't quite there yet, or it's from your bottom which can happen sometimes if you're been straining to open you bowels. If you think that it's from your vagina, then make sure that you're using your Libra liners every day to keep your undies fresh and dry, and to be prepared in case your period starts properly, plus put a spare Libra pad into your bag, just in case
