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 Vicki, Every time my period ends i always seem to get a spot that forms on the outside of my vagina but they eventually dry up and disappear and it only one spot that forms but it's never in the same place . However when ever I'm on my period i make sure that I'm clean down there and i have never had sex and I'm worried because it's been going on for a few months and I dont know what to do. Also if I was to go get it checked would i got to the clinic or to my GP thank you . Nat

Hi Nat, it may be that the pad you are using is causing you a little irritation. Why not switch to a softer covered pad such as our teens or super soft pads.

Hello-Im going through a phase at the moment where I am constantly worried that I will get cancer or someone in my family will get cancer. My diet is far from perfect but I feel like I also dont have a ridiculously unhealthy diet either-today I ate: half a brioche roll with a medium/thick layer of cream cheese, a pasta salad with pepper, tomato, onion, mayonnaise and this polish sausage, two mini gingerbread bites and a raspberry juice/oat bar, one whole margherita pizza with extra salami(although I picked some pieces off) and then I had an additional slice of pizza for my evening snack, along with a small-ish bowl of crisps I had earlier, along with two vimto squash drinks. As I said I dont really think my diet is the worst it could be but I know that my diet definitely isnt a health food diet or anything. I have read lots of stuff online about what a healthy diet is but in all honesty Im still quite confused about what is a healthy daily diet as I feel like people my age eat all different amounts during the day?? x

I started spotting bright red mid cycle. For reference, I exercise five times a week for about an hour long, and I reached menarche, and then got another abnormally light black almost tar like period. I have family history of PCOS. I am fourteen and a half years old, and at a healthy weight (56, 100 lb). Whats wrong with me? It panics me that I might not be able to conceive one day when I am married. I have a very ingrained sense of self and I know where my life is headed with includes a rich family life. Its not and never will be even a question for me. I know that for a teen whose cycle is still regulating this may seem melodramatic though my mom consulted her OBYGYN who said I probably have PCOS because my mom has it (lean type, has four children) but it was too early to tell. I will be starting an ovulation medication soon but my question is really just asking 1) is this normal 2) can you please assure me about my childbearing fears?
