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.

Hi Vicki. This might sound weird but under my left armpit it really hurts to prod and I was having a shower and noticed a small hard lump which is where the pain is from. Could this be an ingrown hair or a medical issue or what? Thanks

Im 25 and I still haven't lost my virginity. And haven't even had a proper relationship yet. I have a lot of insecurities with my physical appearance especially my stomach which literally sticks straight out compared to the rest of my figure. The rest of my figure isn't too much of a concern but even over areas like my chest and my legs area I will often regularly use a tape measure to measure my hip and bust size to make sure that they're a size that I feel is satisfying/attractive if that makes sense. It's almost like I feel like I have to justify to myself that I have a somewhat decent figure(170 cm tall, uk size 12/10, about a d/dd cup, )

I'm scared that tampons will hurt me down there (because you're literally putting it INSIDE OF YOU) and my mum's never used one. What do I do? I'm 11.

Show Answer

Hi, how many periods have you had? I always advise having 5-6 periods before considering using tampons or cups, then you can be sure you are comfortable with your flow and cycle and will use the correct absorbency for your unique period.

I was masturbating earlier, but then suddenly my pants got really really wet and I don't know why?
