    I have just started my period, what's the best thing for me to use? I find that many of the pads are too big for me.

    Try Libra Hearts Pads. They’re designed for smaller bodies but have the absorbency of a normal pad. For more information about starting your period, check out

      You asked:

    Do I have to wear large underwear if I use a pad?

      Libra answer:    

    Definitely not. Libra has small, super-thin pads that stay in place even in smaller underwear.  Our smallest pads are Libragirl Regular Pads.

      You asked:

    Can I flush pads, tampons and liners down the toilet?

      Libra answer:    

    No, you shouldn't flush them down the toilet. Pads and liners have a plastic backing on them to help prevent leaks. Plastic doesn't get broken down in water so it may cause a blockage.  Tampons can cause blockages and should also never be flushed down the toilet.

      You asked:
    I want to try tampons but it seems too hard.  When is best to start using tampons?
      Libra answer:    

    It’s totally up to you when you want to try tampons.  Libra has Applicator Tampons available to make insertion easier.  These tampons are housed inside a simple to use applicator, so you don’t have to use your finger.  The applicator can also help you to get the tampon in the right place.  They’re a great way to get used to inserting tampons, so that you can move onto regular tampons when you’re ready.  If you want to try regular tampons, we recommend using Libra Mini Tampons in the green pack to get started.
