    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

    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

    Anonymous user Is there a way to swim without using a tampon or cup? I'm not really ready to stick anything up "there" yet.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    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

    Anonymous user So I was with my bf and we didn’t have Sex but he did ejaculate on himself and I sat on him (I had underware on) what is the likelihood of getting pregnant if he didn’t go Inside me but I might have gotten cum on my vagina ????
  • 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.

    Anonymous user HELP! I have missed my period twice in a row. I'm a virgin so I'm not pregnant and I've had my period for three years so it should be regular by now....right? WHATS GOING ONNNNN?!
  • 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

    Anonymous user So I'm a gymnast and it's the holidays and I have 6 hour training days and I'm on my period. Turns out on Friday I have recovery which is sitting in a cold pool. 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

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    when you first get your period, it can take a bit of time to get used to your pads. Maybe look at using the Libra Invisible pads for regular flow will be a bit more comfortable for you. Some women never really like pads, they prefer tampons, but it's all about personal preference

    Aghost Hi! I really need your help. About a little more than a yr ago i signed up to this website *reckomended to my class by a teacher* and i dont regret it, its actually been really good and i received one of your starter kits so thx! I seem to have a problem and thats y im back here. Just a few days ago i started to get this brown thing in my undies. It wasnt discharge *which ive had for about a yr and a half* and im not sure if it was my first period or not!? It was very light and kinda stunk worse than discharge. Im still not sure if it was my period or not. Its gone now but im using an app to see when my next period will supposedly come next month *if that was even my period, but ill have to wait and see unless u can help me out and get the anxiety away*. It was so light that all i had to use were liners but it still stained some of my undies. Im freaking out cuz i also havent told my mum! I dont know how to and i was wondering if u had any tips on doing that and whether this was my first period or not!? Thanks heaps I hope u can help me cuz im freaking out❤!

    when your body starts to get organised for a period, it might have a little bit of bleeding, but not enough for a 'full' period. So, because it's light, the blood has time to change colour from a bright red colour to a darker brown, or even black colour. And this is mixed in with your normal vaginal mucous. So, I'd say that this is what you have seen. Totally normal, nothing to stress about, and just your body showing you that it's getting more and more organised. So, use your Libra liners every day, and keep your spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    jhart7979 Hi im 13 yrs old and i have gone on a health kick at the start of this yr and i had lost a lot of weight 5kg more.... in less then a couple of months and then my parents got a bit worried but my weight is getting better now but for some reasion about 3-4 months ago my periods stoped and havent had one since is this a bad thing or not ????
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    your body needs a certain amount of healthy fat order to make the hormones that cause your period. So, if you lose weight, and lose this healthy amount of fat, then your periods can stop, but once your body gets back to its healthy levels, then your periods return. This can also happen if you're unwell or stressed.
    So, what I think that you need to take from this, is that no matter how much you might have liked the look of some of this weight loss, and even if you felt that the food you were eating was 'healthy choices', your body was telling you in a very simple way that it didn't agree, and we need to listen to our bodies.
    It's good that you're changing how you eat, and over time, your body will get back to normal, and you'll start having periods again - the loss of periods was a sign of something being wrong, but not a problem in itself

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you swim, then it's a Health Regulation that you use a tampon if you have your period. For all other sports and activities, it's personal choice, what ever suits you. Lots of girls find tampons uncomfortable to start off with, but with practice and relaxation, they get the hang of them

    girlonline I've had discharge for so long and no period. Should I be conserned. And how many times should I change my pantyliner?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    if you have discharge, then that shows that your body is doing things as it should. When the discharge changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white colour, that's a really positive sign. Also, when the pubic hair goes all the way from the front to the back. Libra make lots of different types of panty liners, so it depends both on what liner you're using, and how much vaginal mucous you have, as to how often you might change your liner. Some days you might never need to change them, but on other days, you might have to change them once or twice - it's purely on how they feel to you. If you feel that they need to be freshened up, then change them

    girlonline I'm only 42kg/43kg so does that mean I'll get my period later? If it does how can I get my weight up!?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the weight we suggest is just a guide. Your body needs a certain percentage of fat to produce the hormones necessary for your period. But, some women are naturally smaller and slimmer than others, so even being a lighter weight, they'll still get their period. Just putting on weight is not the thing that causes your body to have a period. Look for other signs that your body is developing as it should - pubic and underarm hair, your breasts growing, and vaginal mucous

    girlonline HELP, how can I deal with pms, and period cramps????
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    heat packs, simple analgesics are things that can help with period pain. Mood swings associated with your periods can be annoying, especially for the people around you if they don't know what's going on, but it's basically up to you to get a hold on things, so that means, even though you might feel like crap, you have to watch what you say, think about things before they come out of your mouth. It's easier to do this, than trying to mend fences after you've hurt someone's feelings

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    for most girls it takes 12-24 months for their periods to totally sort themselves out, but for others, they're in a pattern straight away. So it's just a case  of waiting and seeing what your body does

    Anonymous user Hi, when I get my period the first day my cramps are super painful and I throw up. Panadol doesn’t help and it really hurts. Is this normal and can I fix it?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I'd talk to mum about going to the chemist and talking about different types of simple analgesics specifically for period pain - often paracetamol is not enough on it's own - you need something that stops the spasms/contractions of the muscles. If you usually feel a bit sick with them, then I'd suggest having some dry biscuits as soon as you wake up on the first day of your period, and then have some analgesia - the biscuits will protect your tummy a bit. Ginger tablets are also good for the sick feeling

    Anonymous user So after I urinated yesterday at around 5pm I had some blood after I wiped but none on my undies. I didn't bleed after that until about 2pm the next day but mainly when I wiped. There was a bit on my pad but not as much , basically just spots of dark red/brown. I've been having really bad pains and been feeling really sick. I was just wondering if you had any idea of what this may be caused by that could help me understand it a little more? also I am due for my period. Just never experienced this before. Thanks :)
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this is part of your period, and it's just very light so that's why you're only seeing it when you wipe. It goes with the pain. It's totally normal to have some months when your period might do things like this - it just sorts itself out. Just make sure you continue to use your Libra liners to stay protected

    Musical_me Hi Libra Girl Nurse. I have my period now and for the last few days I haven't been able to concentrate at school and I have been really sore at the upper legs. Is there anything I can do? I feel embarrassed especially in front of female teachers when I can't do anything but sit there with my arms over my stomach, but it really hurts. Thanks, Dora-Jane.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    often local heat can help, so if you were at home, you'd use a heat pack, but at school it's a bit more tricky. But, there are heat packs that you can use, some are specifically made for period pain, and others are for sports injuries, that provide local portable heat. You can find them at the supermarket so have a look. Also, talk to mum about some simple analgesics that might help on the days when your periods are most uncomfortable
