    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

    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

    Anonymous user Yesterday I bleed out of my vagina. I have never had my period before. I havent bleed scince does this mean I'm going to get my period or is it something else
  • 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

    llehmann Hi. I don't know how to ask my mum for Libra liners! I get heavy discharge and it's destroying my undies. I also don't know how to ask my Mum for pads just in case. Thanks
  • 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

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    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

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's not at all uncommon especially in the first couple of years for you to miss, or have a late period. It doesn't mean anything bad or good, it just happens. Often for no reason at all, but sometimes it can be caused by illness, stress, both good and bad (like holidays) or a change in weight. But your body sorts itself out

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    nothing at all. Your body will give you the signs that it's getting ready for a period but then you just have to wait. The dsicharge usually starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour - this is a really positive sign. You often have the discharge for up to 2 years before your period may start, so hang in there and try not to stress. Your body has already shown you that it knows what to do, and now you just have to wait

    Teese Hi! I was wondering if I'll be getting my period soon because I've been getting discharge ( for about 6 months), cramps, tiredness, food cravings and a backache... Please help! My period starter kit came in the mail yesterday thanks so much! -Teese
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    that's great that you got your starter kit. You can have the signs of getting your period for up to a year before anything happens, so the key is to be prepared. That means using your Libra panty liners every day and to put a spare Libra pad into your bag, just in case. No one can tell you exactly when your period will start, we can only go on the signs, and being ready

    Anonymous user How to help period cramps?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    heat packs help, gentle stretches and making sure that you keep well hydrated and rested. Talk to mum about specific pain medication if you think that you need it, and if it's happening whilst you're at school, Libra make some heat packs that last for a few hours which are stick on, so you can wear them under your uniform

    Kellberry Hi So I was meant to get my period on Wednesday that has just past but I haven't and I have a camp this following Wednesday for 3 days, my period usually lasts for 7 days but I'm worried I will get it on camp. what should I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I think that you should prepare as if your period will come when you're on camp. If you're lucky, you'll be prepared but nothing will happen. It's not at all uncommon at any time, but especially in the first couple of years, for you to miss a period or for it to be irregular, so try not to stress. So, to be prepared just means taking supplies with you, and some sealable bags, like ziplock or nappy bags, to put your used products in if you're worried about what the facilities are like. You'd also need to use your Libra panty liners every day as a just in case precaution so that you're protected in case your period starts. Once you know that you're organised, you'll feel much better and stress free

    SarahGreat Hey. I know I have asked loads of questions before but this is the last for now. My Mum recently bought me some pads but they have no wings. I have only had one period and I would like your opinion on if you think no wings will be ok for only recently started periods. How can I keep the pad in place? Thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    as long as you're wearing a pair of well fitting undies, it'll be fine as the undies will hold the pad in place

    SarahGreat Ok so. Recently I have noticed quite a lot of dead skin on my vagina. Sometimes but not always there is a few flakes of dead skin in my knickers. Is this normal? By the way, there is not much water in our tank so I have been washing less often (around once a week which in England is normal btw) Do you think it might be to do with that? How do I fix it? Do I need to see a doctor?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, the lack of washing will be what's causing the dead skin to accumulate. So if you haven't the facilities to wash with water, then use baby wipes as these will clean and freshen you up. Your vaginal area needs to be washed once a day, it doesn't have to be a bath or shower, it can just be some warm water in your basin and a facewasher. Normal vaginal mucous, plus normal swear, will build up into an unattractive aroma if left unwashed

    SarahGreat SORRY! I previously asked a question concering itchyness down there, some small smelling discharge and white clumpy discharge. I now think the itchyness might be soreness but i'm not sure. Tell me what to do!! Ihave had itchyness down there before but before my period and just after it. Help me please I am so scared!! ��
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the first thing to do is to make sure that you're washing and drying yourself properly, pat the area dry rather than rubbing so that you don't irritate it more. It's really hard, when your vagina is itchy, to not scratch, especially at night, and we often end up making the whole thing worse. So make sure too that your nails are short, so there's less chance of you doing any harm when you're asleep. Use your Libra panty liners to keep you as fresh as possible, and if it continues, you might have thrush. This is something really easy to get and doesn't mean anything bad. You just need to talk to mum about getting some cream from the chemist to treat it. As soon as you start the treatment, it immediately starts to feel better

    SarahGreat So I started getting discharge just after my 13th birthday and since then I have had my first period. It has always been not much and white and smooth. It also goes yellow and crusty when it dries. However this morning when I woke up I went to the toilet and there was a lot of discharge. It was white and was in clumps on my knickers. It didn't happen again throughout the rest of the day. My discharge doesn't really have a strong odur but it does have a smell if you take a proper sniff. I do also have a small bit of mild itchyness around my vagina but not all the time. Is this normal? What should I do? Also if I need to see a doctor how do I tell mum?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this all sounds totally normal, you just need to use your Libra liners to keep you feeling fresh and dry. This will also lessen the chance of you becoming itchy with the discharge, especially when it dries. Your discharge usually starts off as a yellowish colour and then as you mature and your body settles into more of a routine it becomes clear or white. Depending on your hormones, you may produce more or less. You also naturally produce more mucous when you have thoughts or feelings of arousal, so maybe the night when you noticed more of a loss, you'd actually been dreaming too

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the key is relaxation, often it can seem a bit daunting when you first start. You might find that the Libra tampons with applicators may suit you better. Have a look through the site for some more detailed instructions on how to insert a tampon, and remember that it can take a bit of practice. I think it's a good idea to use the Libra minis first as they're easier to handle when you're first learning

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    they won't find out, and the idea would never to occur to them to either think of it or to ask. Look for signs of your body getting ready for a period, have a look at the site and talk to mum about it all, and then you can start to get prepared. There are lots of girls out there who do nippers, and go on further as they get older, who manage the sport with their period

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it sounds like your body is doing all ther right things, so you need to be prepared. When the mucous changes from a yellowish colour to a white or clear, this is a really positive sign, especially when your pubic hair has grown all the way through to the back as well. Keep a spare Libra pad in your bag just in case, and I think it's a good idea to use Libra liners to keep you fresh and dry, and to also protect you if your period starts

    SarahGreat Should Discharge smell? Mine smells pretty bad but only if I take a big sniff close. Also sometimes my vagina is itchy? Not much. Is this ok? What should I do?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, discharge smells. It has a musky smell to it and as you've said, you don't really notice it until you're right up close. By washing once a day, fresh undies, and if you want to, panty liners, this is enough to keep you fresh and dry. No one else around you would ever be aware of this smell, it's too close and intimate
