NO DRUG: I advise you get seen by a GYN to make sure the hymen is not actually a problem--there may be enough room for menstual blood, but not for penetration. S/he can check for primary vaginismus (so tense that sex is impossible). Dilators may be advised--and sometimes pelvic physiotherapy if you have learned to tense up the vaginal muscles.

More info needed: Good evening! Have you had regular gynecologic exams? It is recommended that most women start at age 21 (if not sexually active) for routine pap smears and exams. If you are not up to date with this, have your GYN examine you to see if there are any anatomic problems.
