Put it in a jar and use it when you shower, gently rubbing the rough spots. After you get out of the shower, pat dry and while your skin is moist massage some cocoa butter on the dry areas. ...Read more

I want to go to prom on the 16th but I just got on my period today is there away that I can get off my period earlier so I can enjoy prom?

I want to go to prom on the 16th but I just got on my period today is there away that I can get off my period earlier so I can enjoy prom?

The 16th is 4 days: away. Your menstrual flow should be tapering off by then. While the hormones in birth control, the morning after pill and progesterone only pills can delay a period, once it's started, none of them are likely to be effective and aren't medically approved for this situation. A superabsorbent tampon and panty shield are your best bet if you're still on your period. Enjoy! ...Read more
