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.

Im 12 my mum got her period at 13 and my sister at 11 were going out today and I can't tell if this is cramps or I need the toilet I had it yesterday for about 5 minutes but now its been an hour and it aches so is this my first period or something else thankyou btw I had discharge for 2 years and I haven't had spotting

Show Answer

We do not always get our periods at the same time as family members, however if you have been experiencing discharge for such a long time, it may be that your first period is not too far away, hence the cramps. My tip would be to keep some pads or liners with you when out and about so you are prepared. Our starter pack would be ideal.

Hi Vicki, I get loads of vagina discharge and I cant find any liners that are comfortable and that fit me. Do you have any recommendations?

Show Answer

Why not try one of our liners products, we have our teens liners which are shorter and narrower than other brands so great for girls, or our essentials liners.
