    Anonymous user Hi Libra Girl Nurse! I was just wondering if you could answer a question of mine: I started getting discharge about halfway through last year. I have a tiny little bit of pubic hair (not much) and no breasts or armpit hair. About how long will it be until I get my first period? Thank you so much.

    no one can give you a definite time, but the signs to look for are when the discharge changes from a yellowish colour to a clear or white colour. Plus the pubic hair will go all the way from the front to the back. So, when these things start to happen, use your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    libragirl81 How many day does period last? How do you know there is blood stained on your school pant when you were at school? How can you know you have period at school especially at double period (class)?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    periods last on average about 5-10 days but it can be different for everyone. It usually takes about a year for your body to totally sort itself out into a routine. If you didn't happen to notice blood and mucous on your undies, you'd see it on the toilet paper when you wipe yourself. Often seeing this on the toilet paper is the first sign. If you think that your body is getting ready for a period, then use your Libra panty liners every day so that you know that you're protected, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case.
    If during class you feel damp, you'd just excuse yourself to check yourself out in the bathroom to see if your period had started

    LoveDance Hi I haven't got my period yet but I'm expecting really soon. I'm a dancer so I was wondering what libra products would suit me best on days that I have dance.i was thinking a tampon but I was wondering wether liners would be ok? Thx
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    liners are not designed for anything but a very light flow, like the end day of your period, or just normal everyday vaginal mucous. To use them for a normal flow of a period would not be a good idea cause there's every chance that they would leak. Tampons would probably be best, but it's a personal choice thing. Have a look on the site at the product section so that you can have a good idea of what's available, and then it's going to be a bit of trial and error to find what's best for you

    unicorn123 Hi I like this guy at school a lot and I am pretty sure doesn't like me but I have known him for over 4 years he is white and Im black so Im not trying to be racist in any such way but whit people and black people just are not normal in my school wich I think is so stupid but I love him so much and we have such a close friendship so i'm scared if I tell him he wont like me and our friends ship will shatter into pieces

    whether or not you're attracted to each other as boyfriend/girlfriend, has nothing to do with the colour of your skin, the attraction is either there or it's not. You've already said that the two of you are great friends, so to bring the 'racial' idea into the mix is just silly. No matter how you feel about him, if you think that he's not interested in more than just friendship, then you're probably right. But it's totally your call if you want to let him know how you think you feel - but you're very right, you do risk losing a friend, so is the risk really worth it?

    Miss Korea Does pads and tampons have a expiry date after purchase? Like a couple of years...
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    pads and tampons don't have expiry dates. You work on the idea that if the wrapping looks damaged, then you don't use them

    Anonymous user the first time i had my period my mum bought the pads but for my second time t bought these ones that said night time/ maternity. what does that mean?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    this just means that they're for a heavier flow. Cause you don't want to get up overnight to change your pad, the overnight ones will absorb more (women use these also after having a baby cause for the first few days, they have a heavier flow also). So you don't really need these for everyday use, so save them for overnight and get some Libra pads that are more suited for everyday use - have a look at the site for some ideas

    12yearoldgirl Hi Libra Girl Nurse! I was just wanting to know if you could answer this question of mine: I am twelve years old and have started getting discharge. I started getting it around the middle of 2016. I have a tiny little bit of pubic hair (not much) but no armpit hair and no breasts. About how long is it until I get my first period? Just wanting to know so I can be prepared. Thank you so much.
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it sounds like your body is doing all the right things. A really positive sign that your body is almost ready for a period is vaginal mucous, especially when it changes from the yellowish colour to a clear or white colour. No one can tell you exactly when your period will start, so it's best to be prepared. So use your Libra liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    unicorn123 hey can you please awnser my question its really urgent what do you do if you have your period overnight or in gym class or on field trip with only male teachers ?????????????
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    at night it's not really such a drama, you'd just wake up and then have to clean up a bit, to make it easier, you could wear undies to bed under your pj's if you think that it's likely to occur and put a panty liner in your undies, just in case. As for gym at school, and any field classes etc, the same thing really applies. Use your Libra panty liners and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Libra pads are individually wrapped, so you can easily keep one in your pocket etc. If you feel damp, then you'd just excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to check things out. It wouldn't matter that your teacher was male, they know what's going on with girls of your age so would be happy to let you leave the class if that was what was needed

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    you don't say if these cramps are associated with your period. If they are, then why not talk to mum about seeing your local pharmacist for some medication that might help, or you could try a naturopath

    Phoebe14 Phoebe14 Hi......I haven't had anything since my brown discharge about 3 months ago......but 2 days ago I woke up and there was a few smudges of blood in my undies......I put a pad in that day but nothing came after that......is this a irregular period.....if so I think it seems abnormally light.....I have hair down there, under my arms and on my legs but I shave every couple of days.....I have been having discharge for near,y 2 years now and it goes through my undies/stains them......I have A cup boobs and wear a small bra....I lave bloating almost every day, mild cramps every couple of days and my mum got her period when she was 12.5 and I am 13 now.....I have a period pack just in case,,,it contains 3 regular pads, a pack of panty liners, some slimpons/tampons, an overnight pad and some spare undies.....is this my second period or not......thanks
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, this is the start of your period. It hasn't got itself into a regular routine or amount yet, but that's what the bleeding is. So, now you just need to use your Libra panty liners every day to protect your undies, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag for when it becomes heavier. When blood comes into contact with the air it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown or even black colour, so this is what you're seeing, blood that has had time to change colour, so a light flow

    you don't say if that number includes the time that you're actually bleeding. If it's only been a year or so since you started your period, then you might find that it's still going to change it's pattern.

    kiera_001 this is probably stupid but does your period itself hurt and which is better tampons or pads?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    the majority of girls don't get any period pain, the next group might get some discomfit on their heaviest days, and then lastly, there's the group of women who suffer from more serious period pain. The pain is driven by your hormones and it tends to be worse for the women who have the heaviest periods. So, until you get your period, you won't really know which of these categories you'll fall into. There are lots of products available to help with these issues. As for which is better, tampons or pads, it's totally a personal choice thing. If you're a keen sports person, especially if it involves swimming, then you'll probably find tampons more useful, but most girls start off with pads so that they can learn about their flow and how to manage it

    Miss Korea Hi, I have heard about menstrual cups and I have recently purchased a diva cup online. When I read about the instructions, it says it collects the blood so the blood just sits on the cup. But I'm a active person, I take dance and taekwondo classes nearly everyday. My teacher would also expect flips and hanging upsidedown and hangs for a while. If I hang upside down, would I feel the blood flowing back? Or during the cartwheels, will anything weird happen? Sorry about this weird question...
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    these cups advertise that they can stay in for up to 12 hours, and that if they're inserted properly, they will stay in place and adapt to your body's movements. So dance, swimming taekwondo etc would be no problem. When you next use the product, have a look at how much loss you do have over a 12 hour time frame so that you can work out if you should empty your cup just before whichever sport you're participating in

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    If you've only just got the rod inserted (like only a couple of months) then you need to give your body some time to adjust and see if it sorts itself out. Irregular or heavier flows can happen, but usually after 3 months this sorts itself out. If after this time you're still experiencing heavy or continued bleeding, then you need to go back to your doctor

    Cool13531 Hi, I am 14 years old and I have just started my period. I've only had 2 proper periods (a month apart) during school but it's now the holidays and I have had no period! (since my last one 2 months ago). I am getting really worried but I am pretty healthy down their and I am also not doing any stuff......... But I was thinking that since its the holidays and I have been eating a whole lot of junk that my diet has been effecting my flow. Please help me out ASAP because I think something is wrong with me internally and I don't want to get it checked out. Thanks.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    there's nothing wrong with you, it's totally normal for your period to have times when it's irregular, especially in the first couple of years. Lots of things affect your period, like stress, both good and bad, I don't think it's from what you're eating. So, just give your body some time to sort itself out and it will all go back to normal. Don't forget to use your Libra pantyliners every day so that you know that you're protected, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    congratulations, this is your first period It's just light, which is quite normal, and that's why you're not seeing much blood. I think that you would be better off just using a pad for now rather than inserting and removing a tampon. Make a note in your calendar as to when your period started so that you can start to see a pattern over the next few months

    Anonymous user The doctors suspect I have endometriosis and have prescribed me with Naproxen but it does literally nothing for the pains. The doctor has told me he will book in some scans but it's been almost 3 months and nothing has happened. The pain gets to the point where I will be bedridden for days and my family can't afford to go private to get faster treatment. Do you think that if I go into the emergency room on a bad day it may speed things up at all?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you need to go back to the doctor who prescribed the Naproxen, and let them know that this particular tablet isn't doing the job for you, that way, knowing your history, they'll be able to prescribe something different for you. Emergency departments prefer you to use your local GP's rather than use them as your GP

    when blood comes into contact with the air, it changes from a bright red colour to a darker brown or black colour. So, what you're seeing is blood that has had time to change colour, so a slow light flow. This is a part of your period, just a light one. So what you're doing, using your Libra panty liners every day etc, is exactly right. Now just add to your bag a spare Libra pad, for when your period becomes heavier

    this is totally normal so don't stress. Your period often starts off this way. just make sure that you're protected by using your Libra pantyliners every day and by keeping a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Your body has shown that it knows what to do, now it just needs time to sort itself out into a routine
