  • QUESTION My period has arrived. What do I need to know?
  • ANSWER Congratulations on getting your period :-)
    Your first period can be light or heavy. I am going to talk about 'average' periods but there is a big range of normal. So you can bleed for anything from 3-7 days. The first day you bleed is called day one and you mark that down and you keep counting until the first day of your next period. The number of days is your menstrual cycle length. The average is 28 days BUT the normal range is 21-35 days.
    It is hard to tell when your next period will be due...start looking around thirty days but don't panic if it comes at 60.
    It takes on average one to three years for your body to get into a regular routine. It's not uncommon in your teenage years to have a late or missed period. Many things affect your cycle. Things like stress, family problems, boyfriend problems, exams, illness, diet, medication and even good things like holidays can cause delays. If there is no possibility of you being pregnant then there is nothing to worry about. Your body will establish a routine eventually.
    What protection should you use....pads or tampons? Well that is personal choice. When you are first staring periods I recommend that you use Libra girl regular pads or Libra Invisible pads. These are fabulous with an anti-leak core that forces the blood down the middle of the pad rather than having it leak out the side...EEUU! These pads are also thin, absorbent, comfortable and discreet.
    When you have had your first period and have got used to using pads then you might want to think about tampons. Tampons are great for sport or swimming. Libra Applicator tampons have a plastic applicator which make them easier to insert than other tampons they are also compact and discreet. Many women use a combination of pads and tampons depending on their activities.
