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.

Thank you so so much Ive asked you so many questions on this and I always get the most helpful replies. Hope you and your family are keeping safe! :)

Hey there! What skincare routine do you recommend for a 13 year old. Is stuff like face masks, serum, eye creams, cleansing water and all these kind of items necessary? Or is using a face wash and moisturizer enough. What brand do you recommend for face moisturizers for 13 year olds

Hey! My size is 34B but I still dont wear a bra and I dont know how to ask my mum for a bra because she was never that open with me and I come from a cultural family where talking about puberty, periods etc isnt really a normal thing. Everytime I tell my mum my chest area hurts she tells me to wear my undergarment but now I feel like Im too old for it and that I need a bra. I keep hinting to her but she still hasnt bought me one. When I was younger I had training bras and you could see them through my clothes which is what my mum didnt like so she got rid of them and made me continue wearing long undergarments and and I cant openly talk to her.

Hi Vicky i wanted to ask some personal questions feel free not to answer if you don't wish to. I wanted to know that i am not the only one. Have you ever accidentally hit you breasts when you were going through puberty? And if so dose it affect development? Is it just me or during puberty you get emotional and one minute you are crying and the next laughing? I hope you reply thanks.
