Reducing the Pain of Loosing Virginity

07/05/2007

Question:

I am very afraid of pain of loosing virginity. Please give me advice how can I reduce this pain.

Answer:

Some women find it helpful to become more familiar with their body by using tampons for their menses.  Start with a small tampon and increase to a large tampon.  It would also be helpful to see a gynecologist to discuss the size of the opening to your vagina.  Most women do not find first intercourse that uncomfortable.  A few women have an unusually small opening that may require a minor surgical procedure to allow comfortable intercourse.
