      You asked:

    Do all women bleed the first time they have sex?

     
     
     
      Libresse answer:    
     

    No, not all women bleed the first time. The reason that many bleed the first time is that the hymen tears. The hymen is a soft edge protruding from the wall of the vagina that makes it a bit narrow. Your hymen might tear during the first time you have sex resulting in a small amount of bleeding. This is completely normal. If you don’t bleed, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a hymen, it just means that it isn’t attached to your vaginal wall. All women’s bodies are slightly different.

      You asked:

    Is there anything you can do to about sweating profusely from your armpits?

     
     
     
      Libresse answer:    
     

    Many women perspire more than usual during puberty and during their periods. Daily washing is the best way to control perspiration. Make sure you’re very dry before you apply deodorant. Use a blow dryer with cool air before you apply deodorant if you have a problem with heavy perspiration. Deodorant that contains alcohol is the most effective. Tight tops and synthetic clothes are culprits for heavy sweating. Go for cotton or wool instead. Ask your pharmacist about heavy perspiration; there are stronger products that can help.

      You asked:
    What sort of hygiene do you need during your period?
     
     
     
      Libresse answer:    
     
    You should change your sanitary pad 4 to 5 times a day, more often when you’re bleeding the most – usually the first two days. At night you can use a special night pad like Libresse Maxi Night Secure that you don’t need to change until the morning. When you have your period, you should wash your vagina both in the morning and in the evening, but only use lukewarm water or a mild soap with the right pH-value. Ask your pharmacist for advice. To stay fresh, you should change underwear daily, even if you’re using a sanitary pad.

      You asked:

    Do I have to change my sanitary pad every time I bleed?

     
     
     
      Libresse answer:    
     

    No, you don’t have to change your sanitary pad every time you bleed. We recommend that you change your sanitary pad every four or five hours. The days of heaviest bleeding, usually the two or three first days, it may be a good idea to change a little more often. At night, we recommend a special night pad like Libresse Maxi Night Secure so that you can feel secure and sleep soundly. You don’t have to change your pad until the morning.
