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.

I've had my period for 4 and 1/2 years now and get it every month but sometimes it's at different times of the month. For example I used to be on in the middle of the month but it came two weeks early so now it comes at the beginning of the month, why is it? Xox

Hi Vicki! I recently have been "exploring" down there, and I am nervous about one of my mom walking in on me. I am 12 and I feel like it is to young and if she found out she would be mad (She is religious. I don't talk to my mom about subjects like this, so I don't know her opinion) I want to tell her, but I am really scared about how she would react. what should I do?

Do you know any shops that would sell a nice top, like one that's got no sleeves, just the shoulder bits? Sorry I can't describe it very well! I'm performing in a talent show soon and I want to look nice, but not overly dressy or not too casual x

Hi, it's Olivia, I asked a question a few months ago (WUT067) and I have followed your advice a lot of the time and today I managed to clean and tidy my bedroom (after putting it off for about a month) but I feel so much better for doing it! Things still aren't great at school but I'll probably speak to my mum again tomorrow and my pupil support teacher this week and just get things off my chest. I have managed to speak a bit more Russian now (Ik it's a bit random, but I wanted to be different!) and I'm trying to go out for walks to improve my mood and eat a bit healthier too. So thank you for all this great help and advice that you have given me and all the other girls here! Xx

I am 12 years old and I have all the signs of getting my first period yet it hasnt came, why?

Show Answer

A period can arrive any time between the ages of 8-18 and the signs can be noticed for up to two years before your first period is with you. So, be patient and ensure you are prepared by having some pads or liners with you when out and about. Our Lil-Lets teens range would be ideal. You can even request a free sample from us here at Lil-Lets by clicking on the word contact at the bottom of the page.
