First time tampon user. Should I stretch it?

First time tampon user. Should I stretch it?

No.: It’s a good idea to use the smallest size tampon when you are learning how for the first time. It is also easier to insert it when your period is moderate to heavy as this allows the tampon to glide in more easily. If the tampon is inserted correctly, you should not feel it. If you feel uncomfortable in any way, you may have inserted it incorrectly or not in enough. Never force it in!

What can I do so my boyfriend & I make anal sex less painful my first time?

What can I do so my boyfriend & I make anal sex less painful my first time?

You: Are 49 yo and have never had anal sex. Why start it now? Risks are infection, irritation, and damage to the sphincter muscles. None of this is worth the risk. I suggest you avoid asal sex. If you must use a lot of water soluble lubricant and go slowly and don't be afraid to say it hurts too much and stop!

Is it painful to have sexual intercourse for the first time?

Is it painful to have sexual intercourse for the first time?

Typically yes: Usually if a woman's hymen is intact, the tearing during 1st intercourse can be painful. In addition, the anxiety that she may have during her 1st time may cause her to tense her vaginal muscles which may make it more uncomfortable too. Key is: right partner, patient partner, woman controls the pace of things. Good luck.

Not a bad idea: If after 2 weeks pain is still quite severe and especially if the pain increases upon inspirations and prevents you from catching a nice full breath then, you'll want to know whether or not there was a rib fracture. For that you'll need an X-ray. If you'd like to discuss anything on a private consultation feel free to make an appointment with me by using Key Code: PDXFNR

Hi, I'm very concerned. I'm only 13 and I tried a tampon for the first time, now it's stuck imbetween this flab of skin that had a hold in it. Painful?

Not unexpected: Tampons are smaller at insertion than they will be after absorbing blood. If you are a virginal teen, there may have been enough space to let you put it in but now the opening is too small to let it out. You need to let your mom know & discuss your options. It needs to come out before you get an infection. You might be able to extract it with less pain after applying xylocaine (lidocaine) ointment. Or see doc

Will it be painful to have sex for the first time after childbirth?

Will it be painful to have sex for the first time after childbirth?

Possibly: After childbirth estrogen levels drop which can cause a decrease in vaginal lubrication. Add to this any stitches or tears that might have occurred during delivery and it can be uncomfortable for some women to have sex. Waiting 6 weeks after delivery, using lubricant and going slow the first few times after delivery is the best way to make sure that it is pleasurable for you too.

Does first time sex is painful for a girl, I mean when the hymen is broken.

It's possible: It is possible for there to be some pain when a woman has intercourse for the first time. This can be caused by several issues- not enough lubrication, tightness of the vagina, and the breaking of the hymen. The best way to decrease this is to be very gentle and take time for the woman to relax and feel ready for intercourse. Make sure that she is really willing and don't rush anything.

Hymen rupture: Your hymen was penetrated, thus ending your virginity. The bleeding is normal. And spend time communicating what feel good and pleasurable to your sexual partner: always use condoms PLUS spermicidal foam, jelly, or vaginal inserts to prevent pregnancy. You should consult your GYN for a PAP smear and BC pills.

You may have trauma: The bleeding may represent an injury either to you vagina or residual hymen. The extent of such trauma may be quite significant at times. Evaluation by your Gyn doctor is advisable to see if you need any special treatment.

I heard doing sex for the first time is painful because of hymen. Can the hymen be broken before I have sex?

Hymen: You may or may not experience much pain. But if you are concerned then yes the hymen can be excised beforehand - make sure it is done under sterile conditions so you not get an infection.
