    Unicornlover123 I've tried madturbating but it never really feels good any tips?

    masturbating is a way of learning about your body,knowing what you do and don't like. But, not every day is a good day for masturbation, you have to pick your time and place. So really, if it's not working for you at the moment, then leave it for a while and try again another time, take the pressure off yourself. Just because you don't like it at the moment doesn't mean anything bad, or that sexually you're not incredible, it just means that right now, at this particular time, masturbation isn't the right thing for you

    Anonymous user Hi! I'm currently 15 year old and turning 16 in January :) I got my period 10 days after my 13th birthday and since then I've always had pretty heavy and particularly irregular periods, especially at first but as of this year I've finally started to see the tiniest bit of normally to my cycles (not much though, mostly just that instead of skipping 3 or 4 months sometimes, I only sometimes skip once or twice most). My question is should I be concerned? Even the slightest? I've heard it's common for periods to be quite irregular at first but now I'm approaching my 2 year anniversary with 'aunt flow' and things still haven't improved much. When I don't skip I don't have even cycles and it always fluctuates. My concern for posting a question to begin with is that I've actually lost track how overdue/late I am for my current period and I don't know how many times I've skipped (for some reason I forgot to keep track), although my guess would be at least 2 I think. Would you recommend I see my GP? Would it be suitable and do you think my situation would be appropriate to be treated with hormonal treatments such as the pill because if that can help my irregular cycle I'll be so relieved? Or should I just wait it out until I'm in the clear of the initial 'beginning stage' as such, as my period may regulate in the future? I don't know what to do and of course it's a massive inconvenience because I never have any idea when I am or am not going to get my period. Sorry this is a long question but I'm sure you get them all the time xx

    some women naturally always have irregular periods, it's just the way their bodies do things. It doesn't mean anything bad, it's just annoying. Going onto the pill will give you regular periods only because the homrones are relplacing the ones naturally produced in your body, and you have a period on the pill only because you have 7 days of sugar pills, some girls skip the sugar pills and keep on with the others so that they don't have a period at all. So the pill will give you protection from pregnancy and a control over your periods. When you cease the pill,chances are your cycle will go back to how it was. So the decision is up to you. Having an irregular period can't hurt you, but it can be annoying and it's your call whether or not you do something about it. 
    Some women do report success with Chinese Medicine if you wanted to go down another path

    if you're going to get period pain, it usually happens just before your period starts or on your heaviest days, so, to work out if it's your period or something else, you'll need to just wait and see if your period comes. If the pain isn't anything to do with your period and it stays or gets worse, then you need to talk to your mum about seeing your doctor. For period pain, simple things like heat packs often help with the pain

    Bella_boonxx Hi I have had discharge for about a year now and public hair for a bout two and a half I have also got armpit hair for about three or four months now I don't have a lot but some are long and light brown, I have recently been a bit snappy and have had some cramps for about a week and a half now and for about a week I have had stretchy discharge which I've heard is a sign of ovulation but still no period is it close?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your body is certainly showing all the signs, now it's a case of just waiting, which can be so frustrating. But that's all that you can do, plus make sure that you're ready by using your Libra panty liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Hwoodcock Hi, I got my period last month for the first time. And it now has been a month and a week since i have got it. Why haven't i got my period yet. Is this normal??
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it can take a few months, even a couple of years, for your period to get into a definite routine. For some girls it happens straight away, for others it takes time but it doesn't mean anything either good or bad, it's just your body's way of organising itself. Just make sure that you're prepared in case your period does come - that means Libra panty liners and a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Anonymous user I'm 11 :) ok so... i started getting... pubic hair... probably 6 months ago and recently I've been very prepared and almost always wearing liners just in case. I sort of want it now, just to know that I have it and it's not going away. I'm scared that finally I'll just not be prepared because I don't think it's coming and then DISASTER HAPPENS �� thank you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    all you can do is to look for the signs, that means pubic hair, breasts growing, and vaginal mucous. The vaginal mucous starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white loss - this is more promising for your period. The only thing you can do is to wait, and make sure that you're protected, using your Libra panty liners and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it might be the start of your period, just a very light one. It can take some months for your period to totally sort itself out, so dont' worry, just make sure you're protected

    Taj23 Period is expected in 5 days but I noticed some bleeding. Why is that? Is it normal?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this can be totally normal. Your period can come late or early at any time, for no particular reason, but it's even more likely to do this in the first couple of years of starting your period. You can also get a day or two of spotting, again for no particular reason, it's caused by the level of hormones in your system surging but not staying high enough for a proper period. It's nothing to worry about

    Jbatoua How do I tell my mum I got it because we're uncomfortable talking about it
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this is a really common problem, the hardest thing is to just get the conversation going. So, maybe show her the site (there's a parents section) grab a magazine and show her a Libra add and which product you want or add it to the shopping list. To talk to her, find a quiet private moment and just say something like 'Mum, I've got something important to talk to you about" you'll immediately have her attention. She's probably been waiting for you to make the first move

    Pj_the_dj Is their any possible way apart from like birth control, having sex, eating tofu, drinking that tea stuff, and using heat to make your period come but like naturally
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    okay, I think you've got a few myths going here. Birth control tablets don't give you a proper period, they are sugar pills for a week which allow break through bleeding to make your cycle feel more normal. Tofu has (depending on the type and quantity you eat) Soy contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones that may mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in your body but the affects vary between people and in the amounts normally eaten, would not increase your chances of getting your period. Having sex in no way strats your period, in fact, having unprotected sex before your period may result in pregnancy, because you release an egg (ovulate) before you get your period. Drinking teas, special diets etc all really have no proven effect. Your body will have a period when, and only when, it is ready

    Anonymous user If you had a knock and fell on your back or your kidney area and your wee is red, how do you know if it is your period or there is something wrong with your kidney.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    Your kidney is tucked inside, surrounded by muscle and fat, so it's basically protected. It would have to be a very sharp or heavy blow for it to be damaged. And you would have pain in this area too. So, if you're concerned, if you think you have a problem, then you need to talk to mum about seeing your doctor

    fabbaby14 I recovered from an eating disorder about 4 months ago i have alot of pubic hair and my discarge is heavy clear and jelly like it has been this way for about 2 3 years maybe is it possibke i may never get my period
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    no, I don't think so cause your body is showing that it must have the right sort of hormones coursing through it for these changes to have occurred. It's more likely that your body went on hold a bit when you had the eating disorder, and now that you're well, it's free to get back on track and have a period. 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

    Anonymous user I haven't really had my period for a long time and i'm kinda stressed. What should i do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if there is no chance that you could be pregnant, then you just wait for your body to sort itself out. If you've already had your period then you know that your body knows what to do, but for some reason has decided to have a break. It's not at all uncommon, especially in the first couple of years, for you to have a late or missed period. It doesn't mean anything bad, and your body will sort itself out. The other things that can cause missed or delayed periods are stress, good and bad, ill health, or weight loss

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if bleeding comes from your vagina, it's your period, unless you've hurt/cut yourself, but you'd be aware of this if it had happened. So talk to mum about what's happened, and use your Libra liners or pads so that you're proetected. It might be the beginning of a period that lasts a few days, or just a light loss that only happens for a day or so

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you need to find a private time when you can have this conversation with her, perhaps have with you a magazine ad that shows the Libra pads and liners that you're interested in. You could get her to look at the parents part of this site too. Often it's just the stating of the conversation that's hard, and you'll find that your mum is pleased to have the opportunity to talk to you about this

    Anonymous user I have my period and I uses regular tampons, they fill up within 30mintues... Do I upsize in sizes? Will it hurt? And I get really bad cramps any suggestions for dealing with them?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    firstly make sure that you're inserting the tampon correctly, if only one side of the tampon is filled, then the angle you're inserting it isn't quite right. I'd suggest using a Libra pad or liner too as a back up, just in case, on your heaviest days. If the tampon is inserted correctily and filling, then you need to change to the Libra super tampons, they're slightly wider but don't hurt, your vagina will stretch to accomadate them

    stomach pain and bloating can be caused by things other than your period, so if it's really worrying you, why not talk to mum and see your local doctor to make sure that everything is fine
