May or may not: There's little you can do to ameliorate the brief and usually mild discomfort women may experience with rupture of the hymen (thin tissue at the entrance of the vagina). Men seldom have a problem. Rarely the hymen may be too thick or not have an opening in it, which may require a visit to an ob/gyn doctor to correct. Go slowly and make sure your bf understands and is patient. Good luck & enjoy.
