    Crazyfruit Hi, well i was wondering since my school cross country is coming up and there is this boy in my neighbourhood that i want to ask to do cross country training with, hes really nice but what should i do to ask? Im nervous... should i ask him?

    say hi when you see him and get the conversation started on the cross country training, what he does, what you're planning to do, and then talk about training, then when you're comfortable, suggest that you could do some training together. Keep it all light and friendly to no one feels pressured

    the hair colour and thickness is more a genetic thing, so it depends on your heritage. A sign that your body is getting ready for a period is pubic hair thickening up and going all the way through to the back, and vaginal mucous. You can have vaginal mucous for a couple of years before your period starts

    KitKat9087 Hi Libra Girl nurse, Recently I have been really excited and looking forward to getting my period. I have started a little storage that my mum doesn't know about (I think) and I have been ordering free samples off the internet and each morning I wake up hoping my period has come, but it hasn't. I have started getting hair under my arms, hair in my vaginal area, and my breast I think have been growing, but last year one day I had some sort of discharge and that was it, since then I have had nothing. I got the guts earlier on this year to ask my mum what age she got her period and she said around 12/13 years old and at the moment I am 12 years old turning 13 in May this year. Today I just started getting cramp like feelings around my stomach area: ribs, chest, etc. Does that mean I am going to get my period soon or discharge soon?

    cramps around your chest etc aren't a sign of your period. Things to look for are pubic and underarm hair, especially when the hair thickens up and goes all the way through to the back. The other really positive sign is vaginal mucous. It starts off as being a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour - when this happens it's a very psoitve sign but you can have this discharge for a couple of years before your period starts

    Anonymous user So today I got my first period, and I freaked out. I am twelve years old, and don't think any of my friends have theirs yet. Butttt the worst part, in exactly one month I (and my year group) are all going on our school camp for three days. In that time we will be doing many outdoor activities including swimming and I'm really scared! I only just got it I have told my mum but she hasent yet realised about camp! I really don't want to be wearing a tampon when I go swimming, I have heard they are bad for you especially when you only just got your period. Please help! ️Thankyou x
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your camp being a month away means you have lots of time to get ready and prepared. Talk to mum about this so that she can help. Tampons are not 'bad' for you, if there was any possibility that there was a problem, then we wouldn't sell them. You can use a tampon as soon as you like, even though there are some women who choose to not use tampons for personal reasons. If you're going to go swimming, then, if you have your period, then you have to use tampons, it's actually a Public Health Regulation. When you're on camp, you just make sure that you take enough supplies with you, spare undies, and some plastic bags to put your used products in, in case they don't have ready access to sanitaryt bins. You can use the bags made specifically for used sanitary products, they sell them in the same aisle as the pads and tampons, or you can use the bags made for used nappies

    if you had your period, you'd see blood rather than just vaginal mucous. So it depends on what sort of loss you have. Your period is blood mixed in with normal vaginal mucous

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    yes, this can happen, especially when you first start to get your period. It can take a couple of years for your body to totally sort it's period out so don't stress

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it sounds like your body is doing all the right things, but it does it slowly over a period of time. It can take a number of years for everything to fall into place. If you're seeing a specialist soon, then this is something that you can discuss with them more fully as to how your condition will affect you specifically

    bellaxxx98 Hello. I was just wondering what I could use to clean down there? Which one do you recommened out of the wash and the wipes? Also some people have told me that they can damage the PH levels in the vagina and they can take away all the good bacteria? Thank you
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    just washing between your legs once or twice a day should be enough, using just normal soap and water - what you use on the rest of your body. You really don't need anything special, and you only wash on the outside. The normal bacteria are there to protect your body

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's normal to be worried about your period starting, but you have to remind yourself that it's a normal thing, and that your body actually knows what to do. Have a look through the Libra site so that you can find out all that you need to get yourself prepared, and perhaps talk to mum about getting in some Libra supplies so that you're ready

    Hubbajubba941 HI! Im turning 16 in October and I haven't got my period! All of my friends do, so I'm a bit worried. I am the smallest out of all of my friends and i haven't really "developed" yet... should i be concerned????
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    some women just naturally develop later, and it doesn't mean anything bad. Perhaps ask your mum when she started her period, as often daughters are the same. The first signs are pubic and underarm hair, and vaginal mucous. If you're concerned, then of course you could talk to your doctor, they'd most likely to a blood test to see waht your hormone levels are like

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the discharge is a really positive sign that your body is getting itself organised for a period, so that's good. The other thing to look for is the pubic hair thickening up and going all the way through to the back. No one can give you an exact time, you just have to 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

    ;your hormones control both your growth and your periods, so this is something that only time wil tell. It's good that you're seeing your specialist in a little while as tese are some of the topics/questions you can go through with them

    breazza My period is due in a little more than a week and I used on online calculator to work out when my ovulation time was as I'd had sex with my boyfriend recently and the condom broke.. It turned out that i was ovulating that day or a few days later. I'm 15 and he's 16.. What are the chances of me being pregnant?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    there is a chance that you might be pregnant, if your period doesn't come when it's due, you can do a pregnancy test straight away to find out one way or another. In future, if you have a condom break, you can go to the chemist, doctors or family planning clinic and get what's called the morning after pill

    whatsyourproblembitch Hey, Libra girl nurse! Just some background info before my questions. I am 14 years old and started having my period at the age of 12. They are somewhat regular with a few cycles longer than others. It lasts for around 5 days. Okay, so my period is heavy. When I mean heavy, I mean 5-7 soaked heavy pads PER DAY. I have always had this thing when I'm sitting and nothing comes out but when I stand, it all comes rushing out in HUGE amounts. I am constantly scared that I might leak at school and avoid sitting down at all times during my period. I can't concentrate on my school work either because of how uncomfortable and heavy my period is. I absolutely dread having my period and sometimes cry about it. I don't feel comfortable using a tampon so that isn't an option. So what do I do? I don't want this to go on for the rest of my life because this isn't just an inconvenience, it's also taking a toll on my school work and emotional well being. Is there anything to lessen my period flow or am I just stuck with this pain in the ass? Thank you in advance if you do reply to my question!
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    If you're using the Libra pads for heaviest flows, then get into the habit of changing them every couple of hours during the day, that way you know you'll be covered. You say that tampons aren't an option, and that's totally a personal choice, but sometimes tampons combined with pads help with the situation. Some women just naturally have heavier periods than others, it doesn't mean anything bad. Some women have success with Chinese Medicine for problem periods, so this mightbe something else to consider

    char3012 Me and this guy (lets call him A) were really close we had feelings for eachother he is 14 like me, in the last week of school last year i found out he is not a virgin he has had sex with his family friend, i havent really spoken to him since , but this year so far thats all people are talking about, A has blamed it on me saying i told everyone i really dont know what to do i dont know if i want to have feelings for him but its not like i can control that, also A has dated 2 of my friends and i dont want to be used as much as his friends tell me he didnt like them as much as A likes me but i dont know if i can trust him i found out that information from one of his friends, but A did admit to it ...i know this probably isnt very well worded and nothing to do with puberty but i really need advice xxxxx
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you're right, you ca't control how you feel but you can make sure that you're sensible about what you do. You might be attracted to this guy, but that doesn't mean that he's the right choice. Already he's accused you of something that you didn't do, rather than trusting you, and it's very early in the year for him to have more than two relationships. So, what I'm saying is that you need to take your time. Talk to him if you can, as a friend, and build on that first before you think of doing anything else, remember, there is no rush, if he truly has feelings for you, it will be time well spent

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your period is controlled by your hormones, this is something that can't be controlled by anything you do. So, unfortunately you just have to wait until your body is ready. Why not 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

    Sohpee Hi LGN. I have been diagnosed with Alopecia and I have not yet had my period. How will if tell when I get my period if there is a possibility that I don't get pubic/underarm hair? Is it even true that you get your first period after your pubic/underarm hair?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    pubic and underarm hair are a sign that your body is getting ready for a period, but they're not the only signs. More importantly you get vaginal mucous It starts off a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour, this is a really positive sign that your body is getting ready. Use your Libra panty liners every day to keep yourself fresh and dry, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Not every person with alopecia will lose their underarm or pubic hair, so this sign might still happen foryou
