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.

How do I tell a male teacher that I am on my period for swimming. He is really young and I'm so embarrassed, what should I say, what sort of words do I use?

Show Answer

Ask your parents to write him a note explaining the reason for your non attendance in class. When you feel ready consider using tampons when on  your period and needing to swim, they are really easy to use and give you the freedom to carry on with your life regardless of whether your period is with you or not.

Check out the blog When is the right time to use a tampon?

Hi, my self esteem is really low 5 days of the week and normal the other two days ( estimated ) and I feel really ugly some days because of my hooded eyes, small lips and my extremely pale hair. I also feel short being the shortest and least sexually mature of my friends. How can I get back on track to feeling better about myself? Thanks.

Hi Vicky, I asked you a couple months ago about having gone through most stages of puberty to a certain extent but my breasts not growing past the bud. I had just turned 13 and I thought there was something wrong. In the past months I have noticed that the size of my breast bud seems to bigger and smaller on different days but they never really grow. I hate looking like a little kid when all my friends have matured and gotten their period. Its been 2 years and a half since I noticed my first sign of puberty ( pubic hair) but I feel like I should look and be more mature after all this time, should I be worried? Thanks (:

I have had pubic hair for 2 and a half years and Ive had discharge for 1 year, armpit hair for 6 months now and breast butds for almost a year now but I still look like a little kid on the outside despite turning 14 in May. Why arent my breasts or hips growing, why am I not growing faster. Ive read online about the general order and speed of puberty but I dont match at all so is this normal, should I be worried for not visibly growing In the past 6 months. Help. Thank you
