I've had 4 sets of periods and am on my 5th set now.My question is that i've noticed blood clots in all of my periods and so what causes blood clots and are they normal?
Hi Annie, blood clots form part of the lining of your uterus (womb) and are perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
I'm really scared, I'm on my period (I've had it 3 years now) and I've never seen it before
but it kinda looks like part of an inside keeps coming out, like an organ. It looks like a piece of liver or something if you know what I mean. Is it normal or what? I'm scared :(
This is called a clot, this forms part of the lining of your uterus (womb) and whilst it can appear alarming it is very normal.
I shaved my hair down there and there is are rash and its ichy
;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)
Hi Lucy, this can happen if the razor is blunt or if you have not used a good shaving gel or cream on the area you are shaving. Why not consider growing your hair back and then trimming it in future.
I had this brown stuff in my pants and I thought it was my period. It lasted seven days. Then I skipped the next month and the next and now I'm really worried. I don't think it's my period but I don't know what else it could be.
This could have been your period as very often periods have long gaps between each one. This is very normal and nothing to worry about.
Does the lil-lets teens or normal range have plastic applicator tampons? I'm not so comfortable with cardboard
Our applicator tampons come with a plastic applicator.
Hi vicki I'm 17 and my vagina is dry but the day before I had milky white and sometims clear discharge. Why is this happining? Please help
Discharge can change in both colour and texture from day to day and times of no discharge being made are also common too.
I've been discharging for about a year and a few months now, I'm going to be 14 in a few months, but this past week my stomach pains have been so bad that I have to sit. I can't do anything, when i take a shower I had to sit on the bottom of the tub and wash my hair because it hurt so bad. I have pubic hair, and I'm to scared to ask my mom please help me am I getting my period??
With so many signs of puberty noticed I would think your period is not too far away, maybe even this year.
I'm 14 and my chest in around 32" and my bust is around 30" I've been wearing a 32b for a year now and my boobs are starting to spur out abit so I think I may be a c?
Hi Aali, from my calculations you are actually a 34AA.
I LOVE your site! So two days ago I had a brown discharge and I'm pretty sure it was my period. But it only lasted for 1 day! The same thing happened 4-5 months ago. Is it normal for a period to only last 1 day? Also, I've been having REALLY thick discharge and a lot of it! I normally change my panty liners once a day. But after I had that brown discharge/my period I've had to change my liners 3-4 times a day.
This does sound very much like your period and discharge which can very often continue even after your period has arrived can often be heavy, so please try not to worry.
Hi Vicki, im going to cut a long story short but loads of people at school know I have mamasturbated b4 its soo embarrassing what should I do ?????
Please please please help xxxxxxxxxxxx
Masturbation is an instinctive activity and one that a great many teens take part in. My advice would be to ignore these comments and people will soon tire of making them.
So I was wondering I'm 12 and I've hade my period me and my boyfriend really want to have sex but I really don't want to have a baby at 12 so how can I have sex with him just for fun without getting pregnant??
Help me plz and seriousness awnsers would be nice please
The simple answer is that you cannot have sex at all. There is a law in the UK called the age of consent that forbids a boy or man from having sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 16. This law was introduced to protect the young from situations of a sexual nature that they may not be either emotionally or mentally mature enough to deal with.
Hi vicki:) so im 13 and i started my period around August 2013 and i wanna try tampons,but im kinda scared to ask my mum as she doesn't like the thought of "putting it up" your thingy hahaa and she thinks it will get stuck! Anything i can do?
Why not ask your mum if you can request one of our sample packs, it contains one each of our Lil-Lets teens non-applicator and applicator tampons for you to look at and you will see they are shorter and narrower than other tampons and made with first time users in mind. Once your mum has viewed our booklet she may feel more inclined to let you try tampons in the future.
Hi Vicki, it's Tori. Sorry to bother you again, but I asked this question before but I didn't get an answer. How come I got discharge once and never got it again? Is that bad? I'm confused!!
Hi Tori, discharge comes and goes from time to time and it really is nothing to be worried about.
Hi Vicki. So I don't think I have gotten my first period yet, but about 7 or 8 months ago I got a dark brown discharge that lasted for about 4 days. After that I went back to my daily regular discharge. About 4 months later I had really light brown discharge for 2 days. And now I still/only have regular white discharge. I havent had any brown discharge since. Can you explain to me what that was exactly?
Brown discharge can often present itself as a first period so be sure to ask your mum or guardian to buy some sanitary protection for you and see what happens over the coming weeks and months. During the early stages of the menstrual cycle, it can take a while for your hormones to control the changes in your body and to then reach a balance for your regular period.
I am 11 and I have big breast and some of my friend are small should I be worried
Not at all, breasts come in a variety of sizes and whatever your size I urge you to embrace it and learn to love yuor new shape.
Heya vicki, is it weird that I do and don't want to start my period because I want to be developed but am also nervous! Thank you x
You will often find that girls fall into two categories; one group can't wait for the arrival of their period, whilst others fear its arrival. But I am sure once you have started menstruating you will quickly see that your life does not change one bit and it really is nothing to be anxious about.
I am 11and I haven't had any cramps or any pain .
I am waiting for my period yet is that normal .
Not everyone experiences period pain either just before their period or during their period.
Hi Vicki! Well I have done the new survey and I just have a suggestion! It says to recommend a celeb u want to interview but I would rather see u be interviewed! I would really like to know the things u went through as a teen! No pressure to do it it was just a suggestion! 💙💚💙💔💛💜💗💖
That's a great suggestion, I will pass this on to the team.
Hi, i am 14. This sounds a little weird but i need an answer or advice... I like seeing pictures if two girls kissing as it 'turns me on' you could say but i am 'straight' and i want to have a relatiobship with a boy and marry a boy and have kids with a boy but at the monent i like seeing girls kissing and the way girls get on etc, is this weird? I have various emotiona that go through my mind! Is it just growing up? Help please...
This is nothing to worry about and it is quite normal to be sexually aroused by images of a sexual nature, regardless of what those images may be.
My BFF and I had a fight and her friend was on her side. I h8 her but I don't. I h8 her more than I want to be her friend & I act strong and don't look at her but she always stares at me but.. I no she doesn't like me. I don't know what to do cuz if I act like I miss her it wont change anything. Also, a lot of people don't like me. My friend is popular & posted a pic of me and her on IG & got no likes. I feel like it was cuz of me cuz 1 of the popular girls told me her friends think I'm creepy & weird.
It would not do for us all to get on and it may be that it's time to break free of your friendship group and find new friends with whom you have more in common. Why not read my blog on Keeping and Making Friends and our section on Friendships and Boys under the Puberty tab.
