ask vicki


If you have a question about periods, changes to your body or how you're feeling and can’t find the answer on here, ask Vicki for some advice. Just type in your question and press submit.

If Vicki can help you, she'll post an answer in ‘Your questions answered’ page, so don't forget to keep checking it. Because you don’t have to give us your name, it’s completely anonymous and nobody will know it was you that asked. Vicki knows a lot about periods and sanitary protection but she isn’t an expert on everything and isn’t medically trained, which means she may not be able to answer every question. But don't worry, if she can’t help, she'll suggest where you should go for the right advice.

What are the best lil lets teen pads for heavier days? I find that the day ones can be a bit small?! Also what ones are better for being active? I do a lot of sport, horse riding once a week and I row 2/3 days a week and I'm worried about leaking. Also last night I leaked from the day pads onto my pjs. Shall I wear night pads? How do I ask my mum to get me some? And will the blood wash out of my pjs????? Sorry for all that :)

Show Answer

I would use our teens long for your heavier days and night for sleeping and horse riding.

Vicki, So basically yesterday me and my boyfriend shut the bedroom door cause my brother was annoying us, my mum barged it at one point but she only gave an excuse . Idk what it was. But me and my boyfriends legs were folded over eachother , were on our phones . Also, me and him were kissing , that's it. And then, I went to school that morning with a broken button were my bra is, and the button is broke off. My mum asked me today and accused me of doing something sexual with my boyfriend , btw were both only 13. My mum should know that I'm not , neither is my boyfriend, sexually active like most kids our age. And she won't listen so I'm just crying Demix

Hi I don't like the new packaging! The wipes packaging is way to big to carry around and the font is a bit to tacky! The new colour is a dark blue and not a soft one like the last one which I dislike! The acc packaging on the towels is a more plasticy feeling which gives ppl more of a clue that it's a pad and when u open the pad it's louder due to this plastic!

Hi! I am 13 and have no idea when I might get my period. My mom got hers at 11. I have pubic hair and shave my underarms and legs. I just went through a growth spurt and have acne. Also I have had Vaginal discharge for around a year but it has gotten worse. I have tiny breasts that only slightly jiggle. Do you have any idea when I might start?

I am 15 in just over a month but still have no period. I have had daily discharge for years now and have everything else (hair, boobs) but no period. I am quite short (5"1) and slim. When do you think I will get my period?

Show Answer

A period can arrive anytime between the ages of 8-18 and with so many signs of puberty already noticed I doubt you will have much longer to wait.
