      You asked:

    Are small breasts normal?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    All body parts look different on different people, including breasts. The size of your breasts has to do with your age, your weight, and your genetics. If your mother has small breasts, you’re likely to have small ones too. If you exercise really hard, or if your body doesn’t get enough nutrition, breast growth can be inhibited. Your breasts will keep growing up to the age of about 18.

      You asked:

    What should I do when I have my period and we’re going swimming at school?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    The easiest thing is to use a tampon, but if you can’t insert the tampon and don’t have a heavy flow, you might manage with just a bit of cotton. You’ll probably find out what’s best for you as you become more familiar with your periods and how much you bleed precisely on the days when you go swimming. If you can’t use tampons, you should probably ask if you can skip swimming on the days when you have a heavy flow.

      You asked:

    And I daren’t buy towels for myself because I live in a little village where everyone knows everyone else.

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    Why can’t you talk to your mother about this? Periods are, after all, completely normal and something every mother has too. And the staff in the store will not only be used to everyone buying towels, they probably don’t keep track of who buys towels and who doesn’t. But if you find it embarrassing to say anything to your mother, you could try writing a note and asking her to buy some towels next time she goes to the shop.

      You asked:

    Is it dangerous to sleep with a pantyliner in?

     
     
     
      Gill Says:    
     

    No, it’s not dangerous, but your body should get some air over the course of the day. If you always wear tight trousers and panties, your skin could very easily find it hard to breathe. So when you don’t have your period, I recommend that you sleep without panties at night.
