    HP fan Hi, so I started getting dish charge late last year and I can now easily see it, but I'm a little underweight and my mum didn't have her period until she was about 14, and I was wondering if any part of these is more related to when I will get my period. Thanks, HP fan.

    the vaginal mucous is one of the most positive signs to look for. It starts off as a yellowish colour and then will change to a clear or white colour. Another sign to look for is the pubic hair growing all the way through to the back. 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

    Trillian12 Hi I usually get my period on the 24th of the month. It is now the 2nd of September and I have completely skipped August! Is this normal? I have been having a few of the pre-period symptoms since the 18th of August but my period just won't come! Should I be worried?

    this is nothing to worry about at all. Your period is most likely to be a bit irregular in the first couple of years, but even after that, at any time, you can miss a period completely or have a few days of extra spotting, for no reason at all. It doesn't mean anything bad, it just indicates that the hormone levels in your body have changed for some reason. Your body will naturally sort itself out. Use your Libra panty liners every day, just in case, so that you know that you're protected

    Kateboy2004 I have had discharge for around 1 and a half years. I have full pubic hair and I shave under my armpits everyday. I swear a load and it stinks. Today I went to the bathroom and I wiped and the toilet paper had brown and red stuff on it at first it looked like discharge but it was stickey. I only went for a pee so what was it. Was it the start of my period????

    This sounds like the beginning of your period. So use your Libra panty liners to keep you fresh and dry, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Brookie96 How do I ask my mum if I can use tampons I'm 12 nearly 13 and I fell ready to start I've used two before but my mum doesn't know I was thinking about texting her . I need awnsers asap
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    I think that the best approach is to sit down and have a private talk with her. Texting is so NOT the way to do it. Find a time that she's not busy, and start it off by saying something like, 'mum, I've got something important to talk to you about" - this will immediately let her know that you're serious. Tell her why you'd like to use tampons, and if she wants more information, you could get her to look at the parents part of the site. Remember, talk to her as an adult and you'll get a better response

    Clozzer101 I'm 12 and I haven't got my period yet but I have a question is there any signs your going to get it if so what are they
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    signs that your body is getting ready for a period are things like pubic and underarm hair (when the pubic hair grows all the way through to the back that's a really positive sign), your breasts growing, and vaginal discharge. The vaginal mucous starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour. To protect yourself from the vaginal mucous, use your Libra panty liners every day and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case

    Dreamdancer I have recently just began to use tampons while on my period, I'm finding them quite easy to use and have no problems while wearing them, although every time I take one out I feel a pressure-like pain in my lower abdomen that is very uncomfortable, I am using mini tampons and wait at least 4-5 hours to take it out, so they are definitely full by the time I take them out. Why is this happening and how do I stop it ?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it will probably be that the tampon isn't completely full, so it sort of 'catches' a bit as you pull it out, it sort of drags against part of your vagina which cause the discomfit. As you get more used to using tampons, you'll probably find that the problem lessens, but if it still worries you, then try angling the tampons slightly differently as you insert it

    gen28 whats pros and cons about pads and tampons
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    it basically only comes down to personal choice. Both tampons and pads will protect you from your period, it just depends on what you're more comfortable to use. But, only tampons can be used if you want to swim with your period. Why not have a look through the site as to the different Libra products available

  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    yes, this is totally normal. Your body has shown that it knows what to do, so now you just have to wait for it to get itself into gear again. It can take some girls a couple of years for things to be totally normal, and that's fine. Just 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

    HP fan I'm in 6th grade and not that many girls in my year have gotten their periods yet, and I'm scared that if I get my period at school and I'm not prepared and I ask another girl that I think might have already gotten her period if she has a liner or a pad I'll just end up embarrassing myself because it turns out she's not and so I'm left there with blood in my pants. Please help me I don't know what to do. Thanks, HP fan xoxo
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    the best thing with your period is to be prepared. That means putting a spare Libra pad into your bag, so it's with your where ever you are, and to use a Libra panty liner every day so that you know that you're protected. Maybe talk to mum about getting supplies, so that you know that you're organised, and look for signs of your period coming, things like your breasts growing, pubic and underarm hair, and vaginal mucous. No one can tell you exactly when your period will start, so you can only look for signs

    Anonymous user why is your shit runnier when your on your period? is this just me and is this normal?
  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's from the hormone prostoglandin, which is associatted with your period. It's totally normal, and the heavier your period, the more likely you are to have this issue

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's because of the hormone, prostoglandin, which is associatted with your period - it affects other parts of your body as well and is totally normal. The heavier your period, the more likely you are to have a problem with this

    Anonymous user hey so basically this is my 3rd period and i have had it for about 13 days, the first few days were light then I had such a heavy flow I had never seen it like that, then it went back to a light flow, after that i was kindof like spotting and then all of a sudden i would get like a light flow, then the last few days it has been just spotting but has hardly even been any blood anywhere, infact yesterday no blood at all but today I had no blood and then i had like kindof what it looked like when I have a very light flow. I'm guessin it's normal and my period is just regulating but I'm just checking. Thanks heaps, also previous questions I have asked you I have no idea how to find them.
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    you're right, this is your body sorting itself out, it often happens in the first year or so. It's totally normal for your period to look like it's totally stopped, and then the next day get a bit of blood and mucous, this is because the lining of your uterus sheds at a slightly different rate at times, totally normal. Use your Libra liners when your period seems to have stopped, just so that you know that you're protected, just in case.
    I'm not sure where your other answers might be, unless your home computer has a firewall that's blocking them

    Unicorn555 How do you tell when you are going to get ur period?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    our body's give us signs that it's thinking/getting ready for a period. No one can tell you exactly when it will happen, you just look for the signs and make sure that you're prepared. So, your breasts start to grow, you get underarm and pubic hair, and you start to get vaginal mucous. It usually starts off as a yellowish colour and then changes to a clear or white colour - when this happens it's a really positive sign. You use your Libra liners to keep yourself feeling fresh, and put a spare Libra pad in your bag, just in case. Another good sign is when your pubic hair thickens up, and goes all the way through to the back

    Keeli_keys77 How do I ask my mum if I can use tampons?
  • Libra Girl Nurse
    LIBRA GIRL NURSE
    find a private time when she's not distracted and say something like, mum I'd really like to talk to you about something - that will immediately alert her that you have something important to say. Tell her why you want to use tampons, like you want to swim, make it easier for sports etc, and just see what she says. Ultimately it's your call, but it would be much nicer to have your mum's support. Remember that there's lots of info on the site for mum's too if she wants to look

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    even women with the most regular of periods can have times when they become irregular, more often for no reason at all. Your periods can change if you've been unwell, stressed, had big weight losses or gains, but then, as things go back to normal, your period does too. It doesn't mean that anything is wrong with you, it's just something that our bodies do every now or then. It's a bit annoying, that's all. So, use your Libra liners every day, just in case, and keep a spare Libra pad in your bag, it will sort itself out

  • Libra Girl Nurse

    it's usually about 28 days between the start of one period to the start of the next. But in the first year it can be a bit irregular, which is why it's a good idea to use your Libra liners every day when you're thinking that your period might come, just in case. No one can tell you exactly when the next period will be, so if you want to swim, and you have your period, then you need to use tampons

    HCB12 Hi Libra Girl, I don't know if you remember me, but I'm that girl that has a crush on a boy and wasn't very nice to him, and wanted to call him "accidentally". Well, I called him and I hung up. I wasn't expecting him to answer, but he answered and said: 'Hello?' and I was so nervous, so nervous that I hung up without saying anything. (I'm so dump). And after that I sent him a message saying that I was sorry, and that was me and that it was my sister that called him because she was with my phone. (I'm a liar). And He saw the message but he didn't respond. I think that he thinks I'm crazy, because in instagram (he has a private account like me) I tried to follow him and he didn't let me, he didn't even respond. And now I'm calling him. He thinks I'm crazy, probably. What do I do now??? I'm panicking, I panic while calling him. Thanks LG, please respond asap.

    this guy is giving you all the signals that he can that he's NOT interested, and you have to respect him for this, and leave him alone. You're not doing yourself any favours in chasing him like this, you're actually giving him totally the wrong impression of yourself, you know that this is true. He'll have more time and respect for you if you just take a step back, and let things ease off for a bit. He's not silly, I'm sure he realises that it was you ringing, not your sister. So, take a breath, step back, and give things some time
