    CA1234 Hi, so I am 13 turning 14 in a few months and I still have not got my period. I know that everyone is different but I have heard people say that you get your period around 1 year younger or 1 year older than your mum. My mum was 10 when she got hers and I am 13. I also have had breasts for over two years and discharge for over 1 year. I have not however, experienced any symptoms. So basically I need advice on whether I am close to getting it. I hope that wasn't TMI.

    you can get your period as early as 10 or as later as 15/16 and it's all considered normal. Yes, it's more likely that you'd take after your mum, but it could just be that you take after the women on your dad's side of the family. Your body has shown you that it knows what to do by having breasts and the vaginal mucous, and now, as frustrating as it is, you just have to wait. It will happen

    livy05 So yesterday I was going to the bathroom and I'm my undies was a brown stain and on top of it was discharge the discharge was also mixed in with it a little ( let me mention the brown thing was about 5 centimeters big)The past few days I have been experiencing PMS such as mood swings, headaches, cramps, fatigue etc. But today there has been nothing I still have PMS symptoms and lots of discharge. I'm confused because from what I've heard this isn't spotting so I'm really confused. Please help, thanks

    this sounds like the start of your first period, the brown stain is old blood that has had time to change colour from a bright red colour to a darker brown or even black colour. Your period blood is always mixed in with your normal vaginal mucus, but depending on how much blood you lose, you might not notice it. Cause it's so light, you could call it spotting, it doesn't really matter. The important thing to know is that your body is pretty ready, so you have to 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

    12yroldgirl Hi! So i got my first period on January 5 of 2018 and it lasted until the 13. It is now February 20 and still no second period. I thought i had been showing signs of pms - beast tenderness, headaches, bloating, gas cramps, moodiness. But those symprtoms have been happening for going on three weeks. Another piece of information is that i take growth hormone because my pituitary gland doesn't work. I had to get off of the hormone for 10 days (this was during the time i thought i was showing pms) and i think that might have something to do with it. So the question is, based off of this, when do you think my next period will come? And do you think being off my growth hormone has affected this?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it can take a couple of years for your period to settle into a routine, so to have your first few periods being irregular is not at all unusual. If you are also on other hormones, and the dosage changes, this might also affect your period, but this is a question you could ask your specialist. It's more  likely to just be your body sorting itself out, which takes time. Make sure you're prepared by using your Libra panty liners every day and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it sounds like you've matured before your friends so chances are they're actually a bit jealous of you. And girls often react in a nasty way when they are jealous. You've probably matured more in other ways too, so their behaviour will be annoying in other ways too. Unfortunately, other than understanding their reactions a bit and trying not to let it worry you, there's not a lot that you can do for now. But, they will also start to change too and then you'll be the one with all the advice etc. So try and hang in there and if they get nasty, just walk away and find something else to do, that way it becomes boring for them

    ClassyYoutubeTrash MASTURBATING- So I know where to put my fingers, i have put them in 2 times, but both times it didnt feel nice, and it hurt to take them out...btw i was using one finger. I havent been taught, so I was basically just sticking a finger in and hopin for the best haha. What am i doing wrong? Any tips? Thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    the idea of masturbation is to learn what you do and don't like, so you find a private time and place and relax and touch yourself in different areas and ways. Not everybody enjoys masturbation, and not every day is a good day for masturbation. so if it doesn't feel good, then you just give it a miss for a while.

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    rather than jumping into asking him out, why not try and have a chat with him, alone, without all your friends knowing and looking on. This way you'll get a better idea on how he feels, plus it might just be the opportunity that he needs to talk to you and perhaps ask you out

    unicorn123 how do you stop a tampon from hurting when you take it out?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    a tampon will hurt to take out if it isn't full, or if you don't relax your muscles as you pull it out. When a tampon is full, it's moist, so it slides out more easily - so make sure that you've left it in long enough or change your style of tampon over to a lighter flow on. As you pull on the string, relax your muscles and push down a little to make it easier to remove. Sometimes it does take a bit of practice

    Paniconarainbow How do you tell when your going to start your period
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    You’ll notice some changes, like pubic and underarm hair, your breasts starting to grow, and you’ll get vaginal mucous. When the mucous starts, this is a really positive sign. It usually starts as a yellowish colour, and then when you’re closer to getting your period, it changes to a clear or white colour. Use your Libra liners everyday and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    No, there’s not. Your periods are controlled by your hormones and there’s no way to control these from the outside

    Not at all, at any time in your life it can be longer and shorter and it doesn’t mean anything bad. This happens especially in the first year or so as your body sorts itself out

    That’s fine, your body has shown that it knows what to do, and has started to change, you just need to give it more time. Look for things like your pubic hair thickening and going all the way through to the back, and your breasts growing. Make sure that you’re prepared by using your Libra panty liners every day and keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    elmo1521 I’m on the pill for contraception and am sexually active. Every time after I have sex I start getting spotting and sometimes bleeding. Why is this happening? I’m always taking my pill and I’m not due for my period yet.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it could be a few different things, one is that the area around your cervix is very sensitive and bleeds easily, so with the contact with sex, some bleeding happens. There could be an underlying infection - something as simple as thrush. Or it could be the type of pill you're on - so you really need to see your doctor to get this sorted out

    Anonymous user How do I masturbate? I can't find the right hole or the hole seems too small. I am afraid to break the seal. How do I go about a first kiss or first time having sex, it seems awkward and that I am the only virgin
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    To learn more about yourself you need to grab a mirror, find a private place and time, and have a look. You have 3 holes, your rectum at the back, your vagina in the middle, and your urethra (where the urine comes from) towards the front, protected by your labia and very small, so easy to miss. When you masturbate, you touch different areas of yourself, like your breasts, between your legs, and do what every feels good and you're comfortable with. Touching yourself is also way to learn about what you do and don't like, but you need to remember that not every day is a good day for masturbating, so days we're turned on easily, and on others we're not, and that's fine.
    As for kissing and having sex for the first time, you're overthinking things a bit. It's always going to be a bit nerve wracking, but it sorts itself out, and worrying about something that hasn't happened yet, and isn't probably likely to in the next few months just stresses you out and makes the whole thing a bigger deal than it needs to be. You may think that you're the only virgin, but I'm sure that that's not right, plus, some people who might not be virgins any more, might acutally regret it. People often brag about things like this cause they think that this is what impresses people, but they're very wrong.
    So, focus on learning about your own body. When you're with people who you find attractive, talk to them in a normal way, try and begin a friendship before you think of moving forward with anything else. There really is no rush

    Cool13531 My period is 6 days late. I'm 15 and I have already had 3-4 periods. All of them have been irregular. Is it normal to have a lot of irregular periods from when you first begin?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it's totally normal at any stage of your life to have a period that is late, or absent. It happens more frequently in the first few years of your period starting. If your period has been irregular before this, then there's an even greater chance of this happening. So, don't stress, let your body sort itself out, and make sure that you're protected by using your Libra panty liners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Basically, no. If you want to swim in a public place, and you have your period, then it's actually a Public Health condition that you use a tampon or cup

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    what you have to remember is that your body wants you to become pregnant, so you have to make sure that you lessen the risks as much as possible. Although the chances of you becoming pregnant are very very low, there is still a risk if the semen goes near the entrance to your vagina - it depends a bit on how thick the material of your undies was etc.

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if there is no chance that you could be pregnant, then this is just your body having a 'break'. It can happen at any time in your life, but it's most common to happen  in the first few years of having your period. Often it's for no reason at all, and after a bit of time, your body just goes back to its' normal routine, but your period can be affected by things like stress, illness, sudden wieght gain or loss

I will be at gym for 6 hours and I'm on day 4 of my period right now and I don't know what to do. I'm comfortable wearing tampons im just confused on what to do
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I'd use your Libra tampons, combined with the Libra sports pads for added protection.  Change your tampon a bit more regularly than you would usually do just so that you know that you're covered. When your in the pool, same thing, get out and change your tampon a bit more regularly so that you're safe from any risk of leaking
