    Anonymous user I've noticed that on the LoveLibra website on the products page they don't have Libra Girl Applicator Tampons, but they do have the Libra ones. Are they the same thing? Also, can you please list your favourite products? Thanks heaps. xx

    They're basically the same thing so just buy the ones you usually do.
    I use the libra products cause I love them, but what you use should be a personal choice, what suits you and your lifestyle best, so I'm not going to bias you by telling you my favourites

    Mollyg Okay, so today I was getting changed in my gym gear and I noticed a pimple on my labia I think it's called. I've never had sex or done anything with a boy so I know it's not from that. It actually had puss in it, I popped it and it was just like popping a normal pimple you would have on your face? is this normal? I've never had anything like this before... Please help.

    Anonymous user Hi, I got my first period only today but I haven't told my mum. I'm really nervous about it and I wanna know what kinda way that I should let her know? I feel kinda awkward talking to her about it. Also how long does your period normally last for? I am 12 and 8 months and I don't know a lot about periods. I mean like I know how to use a pad and what foods to eat to stop the really bad cramps but what else should I know that is really important? I am to afraid to tell my mum which also means that I have only 7 pads that I got in a Dolly showbag that I got at the Royal Show last year. I have already used 4 today as the blood flow is VERY heavy. Plz help me Libra. I also wanna know that does this mean know have sex with my bf could be a risk of becoming pregnant? A friend told me it was and I thought that I should ask. Plz plz plz help me a Libra. Thank You Xox blondi

    Your mum is expecting you to tell her that you have your period, but she's probably just waiting for you to make the first move. Find a quite time when she's nit busy and say something like, mum I've got something important to tell you, that will immediately get her listening. If nothing else you need supplies. A good quality pad like libra will last a number of hours, the blood soaks in to the lining of the pad so you don't change it as soon as you see blood. 
    Look through the website to see much more info about your period.
    and yes, you can easily become pregnant, you actually could have become pregnant before your period starts as you don't know when you ovulate. If you're going to have sex, you must use condoms

    Slothlover1 Hey! I am 13 and I have had discharge for 2 years now, and for the past two days I have been having small dots of blood mixed with disharge. I also had some blood a few months ago. What is happening and is this my period? Thanks :)
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    This is like a very small period, a surge in your hormones but not enough to cause a full period. So, your body is really ready, but still not quite there so make sure you use your libra liners every day to stay fresh and dey and prepared

    Anonymous user Some times I get this glossy stuff in my "thing" what is it, and does it affect my period?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    This is just another type of vaginal mucous. The consistency is controlled by your hormones and changes from thick and white to clear and glossy

    Hats_the_girl Hey, i was wondering why i haven't had my period yet my mum had hers at 11 and i was 11 in june. I started puberty when i was 9 or 10 and i a bit worried why it hasn't arrived yet ?

    You might take after the women on your dad's side of the family. When the vaginal mucous changes from a yellowish to a clear or white colour, and the pubic hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back, that's a really positive sign. But all said, you can only look for the signs, and after that, it's all waiting

    Put your supplies into a small makeup purse and no one will know, just take this with you to the toilets, or put the individually wrapped libra products into your pocket as you need them. If you're swimming, then you need to use tampons. There are bags you can buy in the same aisle as your pads and tampons which you put your used products into, like nappy bags. Basically it just takes a bit of planning, and no one will know

    sophieanne If i sleep in a tampon can i get toxic shock syndrome and what is the most common ways people get it ?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    TSS is extremely rare and you lessen your chances of getting it by only leaving a tampon in for 4-6 hours, make sure the product you use is clean and in unbroken packaging, and keep your hands clean. Have a look on the site for more onformation

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    Why not make sure that this doesn't happen to you by putting some supplies into your bag now, that way you'll never be caught out, and in fact, if a girlfriend ran out, you could help. Otherwise you'd ask a friend for a pad or tampon, a teacher, or sickbay

    You can be as old as 15 or 16 before your period starts, your age doesn't really matter. Have a look through the website to get some more details on what to expect

    It's normal for them to be irregular in the first couple of years, but then they should sort themselves out

    ILoveMyDogs Hi LGN, I have recently been experiencing some stomach pains in my lower abdomen, and my discharge seems to be a different consistency, almost thinner and clearer, could this be a sign my period is coming?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    It could be, especially if your pubic hoar has thickened up too. Make sure you're prepared by using your libra liners every day and put a spare libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user Is it normal that your discharge can be white or clear when it is fresh and then go yellowy when it dries?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    Yes, it is, but as your period gets closer, it will become more clear or white, rather than yellow

    Rather than worrying about tampons, why not focus on just using your libra pads for now. Have a read through the website for more information

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    When the mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white, then that's a really positive sign. No one can give you an exact time, you just have to look for the signs and make sure that you're prepared

    Iampositivedealwithit Hi, I have been having my period since I was 11 and now I am 15yrs old. It started off coming every month,but the end of last year it got all irregular and since this year started it has been coming every 46 days. Should I be worried? Is this normal?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    Your period can be affected by stress, diet, ill health, weight changes. So if this sort of thing has changed in your life, then it might explain why things have changed. You could just give yourself time to see if it changes, but if you're concerned, then you could see your doctor
