Reducing the Pain of Loosing Virginity
I am very afraid of pain of loosing virginity. Please give me advice how can I reduce this pain.
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.
