ask vicki


It’s only natural to want or need some puberty advice when you start to see your body changing.

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 our agony aunt Vicki can help you, she'll post an answer in ‘Your questions answered’ page, so don't forget to keep checking it. 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.

Hi, it's a bit embarrassing but anyways, for about 2-3 days now my stomach will hurt so bad, and so I go to the toilet.. And it's so painful, last night I fell asleep and then woke up to my stomach hurting so bad so I went to the toilet and the same thing happened, but it actually woke me up, and then just an hour ago my stomach really hurt so I went to the toilet and it was extremely painful, and now my butt hole stings really bad when I move or anything, I'm on my period yes but that has nothing to do with the toilet, or my butt, I'm really worried about this but too embarrassed to tell someone because it's just embarrassing, what do you think I could do? xx

I have a terribly messed up sleep schedule and most if my friends do to, how do i fix mine and help them? I recently bought a diffuser to spray lavender around that calms me down and supposedly helps me sleep but to no avail. Also soon i am moving rooms and getting a double bed, will a larger bed make a difference and a sunnier side of the house?
