I need to start wearing tampons but I don't know how to tell my mom and I doubt she will let me because im 13
Hey nattyj<3, if your mom won't allow you, then you may not be able to wear them. You've gotta get her permission first chica. Xoxo

MOD MOD MOD I noticed a bump or pimple on the bottom right side of my vagina and i dont know what to do. I dont want to tell my mom or my male doctor and i havent started seeing a gyno.
I know it seems
awkward to bring up, but the only way to check and be safe is to talk to your
mom. She’ll appreciate that you felt close enough to tell her and can help you
decide if you need to talk to your doc or not. It’s better to tell her than to
keep worrying about it!

Mod mod mod mod help it itches down there what and sometimes burns down there and i am to embarrased to tell anybody what could it be
Hey girlie, it could be an infection. If it's been happening consistently for a while, then you should see a doctor. I know it's embarrassing, but better safe than sorry.

Mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod mod help i have a physical soon and i got my period a few months ago and am super nervous i know i should not be because my doctor is a woman but i still am and im to embarrased to talk to my mom about it what should i do
Don't be embarassed at all. Your doctor will ask you about it like standard procedure- she's totally used to helping teen girls out, anyway. And its always good to talk to your mom so she can have your back. Every girl's been in your shoes before. It'll be ok!

@Pascal3, a cyst is formed by bacteria under harsh conditions so it may survive (survival of the fittest). Once bacteria has formed a cyst, it is extremely hard to remove. So as @LittleUsagiTewi said it must be removed with surgery. An ovarian cyst is located in or on the ovary. Hope that helps.

@mystery101 Hey girl! Here's some safe ideas:
1. Look for foods that are high in calories but are nutrient-rich as well! Reach for foods high in vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats, like whole milk,whole wheat, and starchy foods such as a potato. (In other words, not that Double Whopper from Burger King). Whole milk doesn't have any fat content taken out but still holds all the nutrients it's supposed to. Whole wheat bread is better than white bread because it has a much higher nutritional value. Starchy foods are usually packed with nutrients as well as calories.
2. Eat six times a day. No, I don't mean six MEALS. I mean eat three meals and three snacks. Pick up a cup of yogurt or half a sandwich inbetween meals.
3. As I've mentioned earlier, there ARE healthy fats! Plant fats are your best bet. Go for nuts, peanuts/peanut butter seeds, avacado, hummus, etc.
Oh, and just to let you know, remember: weight isn't always health.

@Pascal13 A cyst is a little sack filled with white, pus-like fluid. They're almost never life threatening but can cause a lot of discomfort depending on size and/or location. Normally they have to be surgically removed. However, an OVARIAN cyst usually goes away on it's own after a month or one menstrual cycle. They usually are found on the eggs that are disgarded each month. They only have to be treated if they're somewhere else in the ovary. Sorry if I sound all medical, but I figure I should just be blunt about this.

MOD MOD MOD I was playing with my little brother when all of a sudden he yelled, "Bee!" I looked around and there was a bee on the window and it had tried to sting him. I hit the bee but the window busted and now my parents are mad!!! I also cut my hand but its ok. How do I let them know I was just trying to protect my brother? Please help! xx
Hey GL girl! The truth is, telling your parents the truth is much better than keeping it to yourself. If you tell them the truth about what happened, they might still be angry, but they'll appreciate that you were honest with them and that you were trying to do the right thing.
