    Anonymous user I have got an itchy and uncomfortable vagina, just in the past day or so.. What could this be and how do I stop it?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it might be that you've been overdoing it when you've been washing, or using a different type of soap which has dried your skin out. If you wipe too vigorously with the toilet paper you can irritate the which will then make it dry and itchy. The other thing that can happen is that you get Thrush. So, think about whether or not any of these things apply. If you think it might be thrush, then you can get cream from the chemist to help. Apply some nappy rash cream gently to the outside of your vagina to moisturise the area - these creams are gentle. If you've recently been on antibiotics, this can be a reason too, as they kill off the normal 'good' bacteria that protect the skin here

    Anonymous user How long a tampon sat up there?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    we recommend that you leave a tampon in for 4-6 hours, and no longer than 8 hours to decrease your risks of getting Toxic Shock Syndrome

    Anonymous user Hi so I'm 23 and have had my period for over 7 years. Its very irregular, and comes anywhere between 27-40 days apart. Before my last period I had stomach pain and nausea for 3 days. Why is this happening?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the stomach pains and nausea are often caused by your hormones. I'd suggest, seeing that this has been happening for so long, to think about seeing a specialist. They will do some blood tests to see what your hormone levels are like. You usually need to go to your local GP to get a referral

    Anonymous user Everytime i put in a Tampon it hurts and/or I'm extremly uncomfortable. I told my friends and they had no clue what to do but I dont want to tell my mum. What do I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    if it hurts or is uncomfortable, then it's not in quite correctly, cause once it's in the right spot, you really can't feel it. Try changing the angle that you're inserting it, or go for a smaller tampon, or even try the Libra applicator tampons. It can take a bit of practice, so don't stress, it will all work out

    you might be the same as your mum and sister, or you might take after the women on your dad's side of the family. Look for the signs that show that your body is getting ready for a period, your breasts grow, you get underarm and pubic hair, and you get vaginal mucous

    ILoveMyDogs Please help! Around three weeks ago i went to the bathroom, and when i wiped, there was a glob of blood, but nothing since, what could this mean?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this is like a bit of spotting, so it shows that your body has had a surge in its' hormone levels, so it's really close to having a normal period. So now you need to 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

    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 she's seeing is a light flow at the beginning and end of her period, totally normal

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    the most common reason for it to be uncomfortable when you put a tampon in, is because you're not relaxed. If the muscles around your vagina are tensed, then it's more uncomfortable to insert the tampon. Try putting one leg up onto the toilet seat and focus on your breathing as you insert the tampon. you can also put a bit of lubricant on the tip of the tampon to make it go in more easily, make sure that it's a water based lubricant, not an oil one which makes the tampon waterproof so therefore it can't absorb anything. You could also try the Libra applicator tampons which might be easier for you. But basically it all comes back to relaxation, and practice

    ILoveMyDogs hi, so o wednesday night i went to the bathroom and there was no blood on my undies but when i wiped there was a smear of blood about as big as my fingernail. I wiped more but there was no more blood. I had a shower and then went to bed, but there has been no blood and it's now sunday, do you think this was my period? thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    no, I don't think that this was your period. It might have been a bit of spotting caused by a surge in your hormones, which would mean that your body is getting ready for a period, so you have to 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 >:3 [excuse the face I just <3 it] What would be the best thing to use for your FIRST period I've tried to look it up but... they always have different answers!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    there's different answers cause it all comes down to personal preference. I think it's easiest to use Libra pads when you're first starting so that you can learn what your period is like and how much blood you might use. Start off with the lightest of pads, and check it every 1-2 hours so that you can work out when to change it. And remember it takes time to get the hang of things, so try not to stress

    Adryenna g Hey! i am really sacred about using a panti liner for the first time. Could you give me some tips?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    libra have lots of differet styles and absorbencies in their panty liner range - have a look at the website to see. When you first start using them, try using the smallest and thinnest so that there's less chance of you being really aware of them. Sometimes it takes a few goes to work out exactly the best place in your undies for them, it's a bit of trial and error - and make sure that you're wearing a pair of good fitting undies so that the liner can be held against your body

    Anonymous user is it common to miss a period?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's common in the first few years when your period first starts for it to sometimes be irregular. But this can also happen at any time over the years that you have your period, and usually it just sorts itself out

    brooke20020 Ok so the last 3 days My discharge has turned colour it's changed into a reddish brown colour it's definitely still discharge and not period blood but I'm wondering if my periods going to come soon
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if your loss changes to a brown or reddish colour, then it's actually like a light period, cause the colour change is caused by blood. When blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown or even black. So what you're seeing is blood mixed in with your normal mucous but because it's really light, it's had time to change colour. So yes, you'll have a proper period soon so make sure that you're prepared by using your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    your body can react to other things happening in your life, like stress, change in diet, change in weight etc and go from being regular to irregular. Usually it just sorts itself out in a few months. But it's nothing to worry about

    Anonymous user I got my first period two weeks ago so i told my bestie then she told a whole bunch of girls. Now they're all acting like "ooh you're a woman now!" what should i do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if these girls don't have their peirods, then they'll be a bit jealous so will make a bit of a thing about it but if you just act like it's no big deal, then it will all blow over quite easily. You could though, take your bestie aside and tell her that you're disappointed that she couldn't keep your secret. Eventually all the girls in your group will have their period, so it won't be as big a deal

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your body continues to produce vaginal mucous even when your period starts - it varies from clear and runny to thick and white, and when you have your period you don't notice it as much. The mucous is your body's way of keeping your vagina clean and moist
