Even if it hurts some, it will be fantastic. ...Read more
A little bit, maybe: The hymen isn't like the paper seal on a jar of instant coffee; it's an elastic membrane that has some capacity to bend. Different women report different experiences with first intercourse. But your first time should be wonderful, something you've waited for and planned for. The right man will put you at ease even if it is also his first time. When (if) it happens, may you remember the joy always. ...Read more
Can intercourse still be just a bit painful after losing virginity? If so for how long as well? Want to have babies very soon but it's hard again.
Painful intercourse: Intercourse can often times be uncomfortable and/or downright painful at times. If wanting to have babies soon, I would assume you're in a healthy monogamous relationship. So talk with your partner openly and discuss taking things slowly, use of a lubricant or other intimacy aid. If continues then a visit with your gynecologist would certainly be in order. Good luck! ...Read more
I just found out females have a hymen? Does it break? Is it painful? When having sex? Losing virginity? While exercising? I don't understand..
Many questions: The vagina starts (ends) in a thin wall of tissue that usually has a central opening 1/4-1/2 inch in diameter to allow menstrual flow.

In some, the hymen never forms or is lost in non sexual events in childhood. Exercise doesn't effect it. Penetration does. ...Read more

If the man is a virgin, however, there is a risk that he might be embarrased about awkwardness. ...Read more
