    bellaxxx98 Hey, most of the time when I lay down I leak.. Because my pad isn't long enough. What pads do you recommended that are long so I don't leak? Not the night pads though as I lay down a lot in the day time Thank you

    there are Libra Ultra Thin extra long, a newer range that might suit you better, but if you're using the 'girl' range, you might like to move into the normal range to get the extra length

    Ilovecheerdance1 I have my period amf i need to change my pad at school but all the girls in my class will tease you if u have your period and i need to find a way to hide my pad from them so i can change it Thx

    you can put your Libra pad, which are individually wrapped, into your pocket, into your bra, even into the top of your sock, and no one will know. The girls who are teasing you are more likely to be the ones who actually don't have their periods and are a little jealous. The best way to manage them is to ignore them, without a reaction their teasing becomes really boring for them

    a really positive sign that your body is really ready is when the mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white colour. The pubic hair also thickens up and goes 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

    Bubblegumyum123 What do you do if you get your first period in class and you don't have a pad or tampon and your school nurse doesn't have any either?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it sounds like you're going for the 'worst case scenario'. How about making sure that this doesn't happen to you, or one of your friends, by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. That way you can know from today on that you're not going to be caught our, nor any of your friends if they forget theres. You'll often find that friends will have spare pads that you could use if necessary

    Anonymous user I am 14 and in my underwear there was some brown stuff but it almost looked like mud. Is this my period or was it something else?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    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've seen is some blood, mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous, that has had time to change colour. This might be the start of your period, or just like a 'practice' period for your body. Make sure you're using your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    sometimes, especially when your period is first starting, you can have periods that last for longer than you're used to. Sometimes your period will stop for a day and then come back again. It's totally normal but a bit annoying. Your body will sort itself out, so just give it a bit of time

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    at any time in your life your body may throw out an unusual period. Your periods are controlled by your hormones, and sometimes there are surges in these that affect your period, often for no reason at all. For some girls it never happens, but for others it might occur every now and then. It's even more likely to occur in the first couple of years when your period is still sorting itself out

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    masturbation is totally safe. No matter what part of your cycle you do it in. The only harm you might do yourself is if your hands weren't clean so you'd introduce germs

    Amante02 Why do we pee from our vagina? If you have a tampon in how do you pee?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you don't actually pee from your vagina. Your urine comes from your urethra, a tiny opening at the front of your vagina. If you lay down and had a look with a mirror, you'd find it hidden in the folds of your labia

    no one can tell you exactly when you'll get your period, you can only go by the signs, and make sure that you're prepared. That means using your Libra liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. When the mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a white or clear colour, that's a really good sign, and also when the pubic hair goes all the way through to the back

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    change the angle that you're removing the tampon from the vagina so that it won't pull on this area as much. You need to also make sure that the tampon has been left in long enough to have absorbed enough blood so that it's easy to remove - a tampon that's a bit dry will 'stick' You might to use a tampon that's for a lighter flow

    jasy1231 if you have a period, What's the best way to change clothes for sports in an area with no privacy? How would you put on a pad? Also, for sports and swimming what clothes/underwear are best for when you have a period.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you know that you have a sports lesson, then why not make sure that you already have the pad insitu before you need to get changed into your sporting gear. If you need to change your pad, then you'd just do it in the toilet. The most important thing is to make sure that you're wearing a pair of good fitting undies so that your pad doesn't move. Either pads or tampons will work, it's totally up to what suits you best, although of course you'd have to use tampons if you were swiming

I dont know what to believe so I am asking this for expert help! thanks so much!!! sorry if this isn't really yr area of expertise and that this is a very stupid question!!! :)

    what you do with your pubic hair ends up being a personal choice thing. For some cultures, it is important that they remove their pubic hair, but in other cultures, it's normal to keep both their pubic hair and their underarm hair. There is nothing right or wrong about either, and basically neither is 'healthier' than the other. It's about what you like. And I mean YOU. Guys may think that a girls pubic hair should look a particular way, but that's from magazines, media etc. It is a double standard cause it's not often you hear about girls insisting that a guy get a full wax because girls prefer it.

    RKCFT So, i have school swimming lessons next term!! I got my period (I have had it for over a year), today (Saturday night) and have swimming first up first session on Monday morning!!! We only have 5 minutes to get changed in and out of togs, in a change room with no cubicles, one toilet with no sanitary bin!! What do i do !! Please help me, quickly if possible������������ Thanks xoxoxoxo
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    you could put your tampon in before you left for the swimming class, and then, after the lesson, go to the toilet and remove the tampon and put it into a small plastic bag. You can buy bags designed just for this purpose in the same aisle as you get your tampons etc or you can use a nappy bag. I'd also get mum to talk to the swimming pool as to getting a sanitary bin, cause it really doesnt make sense that they don't have one

    Princess255 I get really bad period cramps. And I take medication for it, my mum knows that I haven these pains but last month I missed my period and my mum said that it's ok/normal since I haven't had many periods. I wear a heat pack on my lower abdomen, when I move and it really hurts. I mainly get these pains most 2nd day during my cycle/period. My medication takes a little while to kick in. Some periods are more painful than the other. But all I'm asking is how to relive the pain quicker, any ways to prevent the pain. But I don't feel comfortable talking to a doctor.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    period pain is usually worse on your heaviest days, so that makes sense that it's more painful on the second day. If you know that you're going to have period pain, then take your medication a bit earlier, so that it has time to kick in. Heat packs are great, and Libra sell heat packs that you can stick on and wear during the day, when you're unable to heat up a heat pack - like at school. Gentle stretches will also help, really you need to keep active, as every time you stop and sit, it takes a while to get up and going again.

    Anonymous user Hiya Libra Nurse, I am an active girl, and because of the sport I do (trapeze, contortion) wearing pads can be awkward. I want to try tampons- what type do you recommend? Also- what are tampon applicators? Thanks!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I think using tampons will be a good idea, but pads will still work for sports - the key is to have a good quality pad, like Libra, and a pair of undies that fits you snuggly so that nothing can move. You'd just check your pad regularly to make sure that you change it as necessary. Libra have two styles of tampons, normal ones and applicator tampons. Applicator tampons mean that the tampon is pushed into your vagina by a little paper tube, whereas normal tampons are inserted by your finger tip. Have a look at the website for more details

    Sophierbadcock I havent had my period yet and im twelve, I think ive got nothing to worry about but every single day especially this year ive had alot of discharge. Do you think I will get my period soon and do you think I should wear liners or pads, because I have had about one drop of blood a year. I have also had symptoms of a period, I just want to be aware incase.

    I think that your body is getting ready for a period, and it would be a good idea to use your Libra liners, just in case, plus they'll help to keep you feeling fresh and dry. Keep a spare Libra pad in your bag too, just in case, and then you're all set

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    cramps arent actually the best sign that your body is getting ready for a period, better signs are the vaginal mucous which starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a white or clear colour. You can have this for a couple of years before your period starts. Another good sign is that your pubic hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back. And of course your breasts grow too. Cramps can be caused by things other than your period, so that's why it's best to look for those other signs. But still 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 I recently got my period, i have had it twice now. The seacond time it only lasted a few days, I haven't had it for just under two monts now. Do I acually have my period? I have heard some people get it once but it's a false alarm and they dont have it. Do I have my period and need to wait longer or do I not have my period yet. Xxx thanks it great to have you to talk to. X

    yes you have your period, but your body is still sorting itself into a pattern which is totally normal. So, you just have to make sure that you're prepared, this means using your libra liners every day, just in case your period comes, and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. It can take a couple of years for it to totally get into a pattern, so don't stress, your body knows what to do
