In brief: Try a tampon

If you can insert a tampon, it is unlikely you will have trouble with sex.
If you still have concerns, see your doctor for an examination.

In brief: Rarely needed

It is pretty rare that a women will need to have a surgical procedure in order to have intercourse.
If you have extreme pain with intercourse or your partner cannot penetrate you should see your ob/gyn physician.
