Its getting hotter out and people are starting to open up their pools, I'm terrified to get in the water because of my peek-a-boo hairs! How do I ask my mom if I can trim them up?

 

Hey girlie! Your mom can probs relate, so don't be afraid to let her know what's up. Just tell her your concerns about pool parties and beach days. xo

My friend just showed me something where they discussed how its not good to completely shave down there because it said we have hair there for a reason and its to help keep things away from our vagina. But then I heard since we wear modern underwear and its not like in ancient times where bathing and keeping clean was tougher, that its good to shave.

Plus if our hair is there to keep away things then why do guys even have pubic hair because their parts all hang away from their body. So I think shaving is good for a number of reasons.

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!! I don't shave my hair down there, but I do trim it to make it less messy when I'm on my period. Is there a certain way that I need to trim it though?

 

Hey girl-

shaving down their is a personal preference-- there is no certain way to trim. Just make sure you aren't causing any uncomfortable ingrown hairs! xoxo

HELP ASAP I really need help!
Ok, so my period ended (I thought so) 2 days ago and it came back just now. Tomorrow for PE my class is doing a water polo lesson. I'm really scared cause 1) I don't know how to use tampons. 2) what would yhe guys in my class say? and 3) what do I tell me teacher? Do u think I should try to use a tampon, or just skip the lessons? (They are today, tomorrow and the next day)plus my mom only has super jumbo tampons.

 

 Hey girly, why don't you ask your mom to pick up some smaller tampons, like a sport tampon. Read the directions in the box and check out this article for extra help. http://www.girlslife.com/post/2009/06/23/007-Period-Advice.aspx?cp=all If your still having too much trouble, you should talk to your teacher. Talk to him/her privately before class and just say that your having girl problems and won't be able to get in the water. They'll understand. And don't worry about the guys in the class. It's non of their business! If you need an excuse, tell them you arnt feeling well or have a headach or something. But boys know that girls have periods and its not that big of a deal. Good luck!

One of my boobs hurts a lot. I dont have medicine. What should i do?

 

Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

1) how much toilet paper should i use?
2) how often should i change it?

Do you think i should tell my mum before i shave down there. i have never asked her but im sure she said something like now untill your 13!!!!! i cant wait till that long. I am 11 and its like really thick. I did actually shave once without telling her and it made me more confident but i dont know what to do! Please help




Hey girly, you could try having a convo with your mom. Make sure your calm, whining always makes parents want to say no. Ask her if it's okay and tell her that it makes you feel better when the hair is gone. Ask her what her concerns are and see if you can make her feel better about your shaving. If she still feels like your too young, try trimming to keep things neat and tidy until your older.  Best of luck.

Its a personal choice!

A lot of people believe you dont need to start shaving until you start becoming intimate with guys because thats how they like it but you should start shaving when you want and when you feel you are ready. Personally, it makes me feel better about myself when I shave and take care of down there but do what you want.

I feel exactly the same way! But DON'T make the dumb mistake of shaving or waxing down there! The skin of your pubic area is very sensitive! If they say something mean to you, tell their parents and yours too. That's YOUR business ONLY!

Hey how r u
I haven't been on in a while because everything about my life has been fine..../ till now
So I posted this on another question as a comment but it's taking forever so can I please answer this:
I started my period (not my first I've had if for a year) and like I always do I put a tampon in. Exept this time it wouldn't go in all the way. Idk why it's so hard for me now when I've been putting in tampons in for a year. And then since I couldn't get it in, I started to get nervous so it made my down there tense up. Now it's even harder to get it in! So here are my q's
1) do u have any idea why it won't go in
2) and how do I calm down? I'm nervous that there is something wrong with me Frown

 

 Hey girlie! Now that you're worrying about it, you are tensing up and making it not go in.  You may have just been going in from a weird angle and not realized it.  Wait a day and try again.  I don't think anything is wrong, but if you still can get it in later today or tomorrow, talk to your mom and she might be able to give you advice.  xoxo

Ok so Im just starting middle school and we have to change into our gym clothes, in the locker room. But i don't feel comfortable changing around every girl! So got any tips?
Also I have a male homeroom teacher, thing is I never know when my period could start. So got any other tips where its not awkward (just in case if I need to tell him whats wrong)in case i get it in his class!
Thanks

 

Hey! Have you ever been to sleep away camp? i sort of learned how to change in front of people there. You just sort of have to put clothes on over your clothes and take off the ones underneath using the new clothes as cover? It's hard to explain. I would just always carry a pad with you in your purse or pocket and if you notice it's happening just go to the bathroom like you normally would to change into the pad. There's no need to clue your teacher in unless you feel more comfortable that way.

This is extremely awkward and embarrasing for me, but I need to ask. I have alot of hair "down there", and it falls out alot! I notice the hair falling out in the shower, in my panties, in my hands when I wash down there, and on the floor when I change! It's freaking me out and I'm too embarassed and afraid to talk to my parents...let alone my male doctor! Please help!




Hey girlie,

Don't worry, that's totally normal! The hair "down there" is usually wiry and coarse, so when it rubs up against your undies it can sometimes fall out. It's not a big deal! Smile To cut down on this, you could always trim the strands a bit to keep them a little more manageable. But that's a personal decision and totally up to you!

Okay so this is like the 3rd time I've asked this but no one replayed. Well here we go: so about a week ago I noticed I was getting hair on my vagina, should I tell my mom? Also if I don't is it ok to shave it anyway or should I ask my mom before I do? How would I ask? And finally I saw u mention 'Nair' before, what is it and how does it work? Thx and please reply this time.







Hey chica! If you feel comfortable talking about it, you can tell your mom. I don't think you have to though. It's totally normal, and whether you shave or not is your preference. Nair is basically a lotion that gets rid of hair. Personally, I think it's a little messy and doesn't always leave you as smooth as shaving does.

Claire, Most of us shave, some of us, like me, shave it completely and some like my friends leave some hair so its up to you on how you want it to look. As far as the sex thing, just because you shave all of it doesnt mean you are active because I have friends who are sexually active and dont shave all of it, they just trim it really well. So that part is your decision. But I do understand we want it to look a certain way when we start doing things with guys. And to get rid of bumps and rashes use a good moisturizer every day.

I cant use a tampon! I tried today and I wasn't even close to doing this right! Frown I know to wash your hands, take it out and push the tampon out and stuff but I don't know where to out it. I guess, was I putting it in the wrong place? It was to hard! What am I doing wrong I just can't find where to put it in. I think I also used the last tampon in the house so no more trying for me. I don't wanna ask my mom though.. Help?!

Hey pinkkattie1999, it’s okay calm down and breathe. It’s understandable why this is a little difficult for you, considering this is your first time inserting a tampon. There’s only one place for it to go. So the next time you want to wear one, take your time putting it in. Get into a comfortable position, maybe propping one leg up on something, like the toilet will give you a better angle to insert it. If you really can’t figure it out, visit the tampon website for help or search google for directions. No worries. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I know that I have like a ton of questions, but I hope you can answer this one.
Even though I know (now, thank you) that my teacher will understand if I have my period, I'm still REALLY REALLY REALLY nervous about having it at camp, because I can't stay calm if she does ask me, and my friends will probably laugh at me, and I won't be able to do all the activities, and what if i leak? Please help, how do I calm down.




Hey girl,

The truth is, everyone at that camp - your teacher, your friends - will have their periods at some point. It's a fact of life. You can't prevent it from coming, so you might as well accept it and stay calm when dealing with it. If people find out, you'll deal with it when it happens. You'll shrug your shoulders and you'll tell them yeah I have my period, so what? No one will laugh at you - chances are, they'll be interested in it. I had my period before my best friends got theirs and they were SO interested, they always asked me questions about how I dealt with it and what it felt like. It's actually fun to be the person who is experiencing something that no one else has before, because they're all so curious about it. As for saying "I can't stay calm when she asks me" ... yes you can. Fake it til you feel calm for real - even if you're feeling crazy inside, take a deep breath and talk like it's no big deal. You can trick yourself into being laid back about it, I promise!

thanks sooooooooooo much!!!!
how many pads/tampons should I bring to camp (it's 3 and a half days) I normally have a regular or heavy flow.
thank you for answering my questions!!




No problem, girl! If you're using tampons, I'd personally probably stash a whole normal-sized box of regular tampons (I think it's about 18) in your duffel bag. It's wayyyy more than you'd ever use over 4 days, but that way, there are no surprises - if you have to change one after two hours one day, you won't panic because you're running low. As for pads, try to figure out how often you change your pads - every 4 hours? Every 3? Every 6? Divide that into each day and then always bring about 5 extras, just in case Smile

Hey babe,

If she doesn't ask, just stay calm and act confident, like nothing is wrong. Nothing IS wrong - you just have your period, which is a totally normal thing! Don't act awkward and don't talk too much - just take a deep breath and act normal. She won't suspect a thing Smile If she does ask, just shrug and stay calm. Tell her yes you have it and you've had it for a while, so it's really no big deal. (Even if you don't REALLY think that yet.) If you act like you're cool with it, she won't try to talk to you about it because she'll know you're mature, you're used to it, and you don't need any help dealing with it!

okay, I have one very important question. I'm going camping, with my class on Monday, and lucky for me, it's my time of the month Frown. My teacher said that we always have to have an adult with us, when we go the washroom, because it's like far away from the cabins, so I'm scared to change my pad or tampon because they will hear me open the wrapper (FYI, my teacher is a girl) Plus I fell like I'm the only girl in my class who has their period. I'm scared that she's (my teacher) is going to ask me if I have it or not. HELP, how do I change my pad/tampon there?




Hey girlie,

It's nothing to be afraid of! Especially since your teacher is also a girl, she'll totally understand - she has her period too, after all. She probably won't even mention it even if she does hear the wrapper, but if she does it is not to embarrass you - if she DOES ask, she'll be asking in case you need help/have questions, etc. She wants to help ya and make sure you feel comfortable no matter what, so don't panic.

How do i know if i need a new size bra, and how do i tell my mom that i think i need a new one? Thanks a bunch!




Hey girlie,

If your bra is on the loosest hook, the straps are totally loose, and you feel discomfort because your boobs are sagging/busting out of the bra, you should probably try a new size. Your current bra might have just gotten worn out though, so make sure you try the same size too just in case! And to tell your mom, take a deep breath and catch her at a time when she is relaxing and not stressed out. Explain how your bra feels and tell her you don't want to go crazy buying bras, but you need a new one because your current one is making you feel sore/uncomfortable. Be mature about it and she'll understand! Smile

Thanks!



Oh, that's tricky if your bags are across the room.  Not changing it should be fine on days when you have a light flow.  Otherwise, maybe you could tuck a small tampon in your pencil case and slip it under your shirt until you get to the bathroom?

I finally got the hang of tampons, but only the plastic ones... there are only cardboard ones left at my house, and i don't have any lubricate, the only reason i can get the plastic ones in is bcuz they slide in there without much effort, the ones with the cardboard applicators though, don't slide in, and i need to change my tampon soon, so do u have any tips for sliding in tampon with a cardboard applicator? (other that using the luricate you get in stores, bcuz i dont have any)




I don't personally have much trouble with either but I would imagine that you could use water to help moisten the area to help the applicator slide in more easily.

Hey girl,

Usually, one pang of pain isn't a sign that your period will be starting. It typically lasts a little longer, feels achy, and could even make your back, legs, and rest of your bod sore. It could also be gas pains, a sign that you have to use the bathroom, or any number of other pains. I wish we could tell ya for sure that it is a period pain, but it's hard to tell since we can't feel them for ya Smile

Hey girl,

You can find other underwear with less bad pantylines that aren't thongs, and if you're still having an issue, maybe try going up a pants size! But if you want mom's advice on thongs, explain the situation to her and stay calm no matter her reaction. Good luck!

okay.. my mom scheduled an appointment for me at the gynecologist, but she scheduled it for tomorrow... i will still have my period! I thought they would but something up *there* but what if im wearing a tampon or a pad. And i thought they ell u to be fully naked, no underwear..
so, if they do tell me to be naked, where do i put the pad? (by the way.. the appointment is because my period is really heavy, and because my PMS symptoms are really bad.) So to sum it up... which(pad or tampon) should i use and do they put something in your vagina? Does it hurt?




Hey girly! Generally for your first appointment they do not do a real evaluation, especially if you are on your period. They just ask you questions and see if there is anything too abnormal going on. If they think that you may need an evaluation then they will have you come back at another time, when you wont have your period.

yay, my period is not that heavy anymore! On the other side... i keep getting these killer cramps in my lower stomach! I's so bbad.. i dont think i can walk for that long. I'm on my bed right now, and for some reason lying on my stomach relives the pain! but.. i dont think i can lie on my stomach for that long.Anyways... thank you so much for the help! M mom came home early! Smile she came at about 2 o'clock Also, is this normal that my stomach and head hurt I thought pms was supposed to last only till you start your period!!
Do u have any tips on reliving these symptoms?
thnk you, again
Smile




Hey girl,

It's totally normal! Don't sweat it. Our periods are natural but they also take a toll on our bodies, so they can make us feel tired, achy, irritable, etc. all throughout - not just in the beginning! To help ease these symptoms, I always like to get LOTS of rest during my period. Popping an Advil can help with the pain, while a heat pad/hot water bottle/microwave "bed buddy" on your stomach/back can loosen up your muscles and soothe cramps Smile Hang in there, babe!

MODMOD MOD!! (Jordan s.) sorry for all the questions but I just want to make sure I do everything right!!!!! What's the best way to get the hairs in the back? Because I want to be like hairless lol because I hate when I have strands sticking out and stuff!! Also, what should I moisturize with after, lotion or what?!?! Thanks so much again<3



It's fine! I don't mind!

The best ways to get the hairs in the back is to lift your leg on a countertop or shower ledge, that way you can get a better view of what you're near.

Lotion works!  There are also some bikini-line specific brands that you can find at your drugstore too to prevent ingrown hairs.

MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!(Jordan S.) okay, thanks. But also should I trim the hair on my inner thigh and lips of my vagina first because I have never shaved that part, would that make it easier, because I usually just stop when I get to my labia.??????? Also, does it itch after a few days I usually shave down there every two day, just to stay clean, I hate being hairy down there, is it okay to shave my vagina that often because I don't want it to each!???? Thanks for answering all my questions, you've helped alot!!! THANKS(:



It may itch from the hair growing back in, but if it does you can calm it down with some hydrocortisone cream or aloe.

It's perfectly fine to shave that often!  Just make sure you moisturize afterward so that you can avoid any irritation.

When shaving for your first time there, I would trim it down a bit so that it's more likely for the razor to really get the majority of the hairs.  Just be careful with the scissors!

Good luck, babe!

MOD MOD Mod!!!! So I shave my vagina, almost all of it but I don't go in between my thighs and I stop right above the lips or labia of my vagina. But I want to shave everything because I'm tired of being almost hairless and then having some hairs stuck out atough I do trim but it doesn't get it all. What are some good tips to make sure to get all hair only vagina gone and like behind my vagina towards my butt gone with out cutting myself?!?!?!? Also, is it unhealthy to shave everything because my friend said that your not supposed too?!?!? THANKS



Hey babe,

When shaving down there, it's really just a practice makes perfect situation.  You should avoid shaving in two different directions, and it's best to directionally go with the hair.  If you go in multiple directions, you're likely to get ingrown hairs since the area is particularly prone to them.

Try sitting on the edge of the bathtub,  so you can avoid blindly shaving and possibly nicking yourself.  Soon enough you'll get the hang of it and you won't need to.

And it is perfectly safe!

MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!! so I shave my vagina. Almost all of it of except near my "lips" or labia, it used to be really long but I trimmed it so it's short. Is it OK to shave everything off like even near your thighs (on the inside)? With summer coming up, I don't want to have any hairs hanging out. But I want to be safe. Also, what kind of a razor should you use to shave pubic hair i just use a disposable razor(BIC) is that okay, or should I use a different type? Please answer my questions. THANKS(:

 

 

Hey girly girl! It's totally OK, as long as you're very, very careful. You don't want to knick yourself... that hurts! As far as a razor goes, I'd say a disposable one is fine, as long as you use shaving cream or lotion. Otherwise, it may hurt.

tell your friends to shut up, your "friends" aren't sopposed to judge. My advice tell them "Why you lookin down there anyway?"

MOD MOD MOD I started puberty when I started 4th grade. Now that just turned 11 I have hairs down there. at first it wasn't that bad but now it's a forest . I ever told anyone so can you tell me what to do ?

 

Hey DivaD01, you can start shaving down there. You could try Nair bikini cream, which is a lotion you apply and leave on for 10 minutes or less and wipe with a warm cloth or off in the shower. Or you could get bikini shaving cream and use a razor to get the hairs off. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Mod Mod!!
So my hair "down there" always pokes out of the side of my underwear. It's embarrasing, and really annoys me. I don't want to shave it off because I know that it will irritate my skin, but would it do any harm to kind of..trim it, so it's shorter, and wont poke out? And is this normal for a girl to do?

 

Thats completely normal! If it makes you more comfortable i say do it Smile xoxo kerra

MOD MOD MOD this makes me embarrassed to say but is it bad to masturbate? like touch your self down there ?

Hey girl,

While some cultures or religions may frown on masturbation, it's a personal choice, and there aren't any health risks, so it's really up to you if that's something you want to explore. Check out this post, too! http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/10/08/Im-Desperate.aspx?cp=all

I'm 12. I am obviously a virgin. I got my period when I was 11. I always had my period every month except this month. I didn't have mine this month so far. I'm freaking outn..help??




Hey babe,

This is totally normal! Even if your period has been completely regular until now, it's still normal for it to be irregular sometimes. It can be affected by changes in diet, sleep, stress, etc. Don't worry! Just keep on going with your routine and it'll come. Even if it's a few weeks late, don't panic! <3

That means there not real true friends. Thats not good. im sorry that happened to you. You need to find a real bff you can trust conpleatly and talk to her about it. Just see what you can do.

You could tell them to mind their own bush, when I read that comment from someone else I laughed. But that is the truth, you dont need to tell anyone what you do 'down there'.

by luckykel on 12/7/2011 4:35:10 PM

 
 

you need to tell them to shut there mouthes or you will find other friends who be respectful!

by glfan88 on 11/8/2011 8:56:07 PM

 
 

Wow that was mean of your friends to do that. Next time they make fun of you you need to tell them to stop. Your mom is right it is supposed to be there so dont worry

by glfan88 on 11/8/2011 8:54:50 PM

 
 

1. Say your name 10 times.
2. Say your mom's name 5 times.
3. Say your crush's name 3 times.
4. Paste this to 4 other quizzes. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday, but if you read this and do not paste this, then you will have very bad luck! SEND THIS TO 5 QUIZZES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOU'RE DONE PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSH'S NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS ON THE SCREEN. THIS IS SO FREAKY BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS

by DivaD01 on 11/8/2011 1:29:30 PM

 
 

your mom's right it's supposed to be there. and tell your friends that they should mind their own buisness-in a nice way of course!- Confidence is key...

hope this helps

Guys, some best friends talk about this stuff!! My bestfriend and I do it ALL the time! But she'd NEVER tease me about it! She's just cool like that(: talking about this stuff makes you feel closer to your BFF. But, anyway, that's not nice!

MOD MOD MOD so this might sound weird, but whenever i shave under my arms, the hair grows back like a week later! and when it does, it's only on my right side, not my left. do you know why this happens? and is it normal?

 

Hey girly, I'm not exactly sure why this is happening. Mhmm maybe it's because you're shaving with a certain type of soap. Use shaving cream instead. You should also try using nair, that might prevent the hair from growing back so fast. Hope this helps!! Smile Smile

MOD MOD MOD So at our school (i am in 7th grade) the girls all change together in the bathroom. My hair "down there" is like a forest and it pokes out of the sides of my underwear and it is embarrasing when we have to change. I am pretty sure my mom won't let me shave it and I also don't want to shave it because I have heard that it is itchy and irritating. What should I do?

 

Hey chica, try going into a stall by yourself to change. You may also want to tell your teacher that you aren't comfortable changing in front of all the other girls. Hope this helps!! Smile Smile

how do your friends know how much pubic hair you have ?

by maddieboo786 on 10/19/2011 5:13:05 AM

 
 

The GOOD and BAD about SHAVING!

Your friends should not do that, obviously they shave everything and a lot of us do that but that doesnt mean you have to. Its fine to shave it all to or leave some of it, if you do shave it all or some, our vulvas and what we have down there becomes more visible and easier to see.

So I think if you keep it neat just tell them you shave some of it because a lot of girls our age leave some to. Shaving has its advantages but it is also a pain, and shaving it all takes a lot of time to keep things smooth and plus you have to moisturize. I have even heard guys talking about girls who dont shave and it makes me think they are saying that and they probably dont even shave themselves down there. So just do what you want with it.

by luckykel on 10/16/2011 6:27:15 PM

 
 

If a friend does that too...that's totally WRONG!! That should NOT be your friend. Your business down there is YOUR business...not theres!! You deserve better..

1) how can you tell if a guy is looking at you?
2)how do you know if a guy is in to you?

MOD MOD MOD so lately just one of my boobs has been hurting. It's kinda hard I guess. Do you know what it could be from? Thanks!




Hey girlie,

Our boobs can feel tender before our periods because of our hormones, they can hurt as they grow, it can be sore from working out, or it can be another reason entirely. Make sure you don't feel any small hard lumps. If you don't, try taking an Advil to see if that helps alleviate the pain. If it continues for a while, don't be afraid to call your doc! It's probably nothing, but it's good to check with a professional just in case.
