Question: Hi
My new wife bled when I broke her virginity (not too much, but spotty over a day or so and certainly during the act itself), she complained of severe pain and now every time we try she complains of pain so its been a week or so now and we haven't gone all the way again, she still fears sex will be painful, even entering a finger and she complains of pain.

Thanks for your query.

It is completely normal for one to complain about pain even after a week or two after hymen rupture. There may even be re-bleed from the torn ends on subsequent attempts.

The vaginal opening gets accommodative on subsequent attempts. Do use XYLOCAINE Jelly during the intercourse. This contains local anesthesia and will minimize the pain. You can stop the jelly after you are sure about her comfort.

If problem continues to persist, you need to consult a gynecologist for careful local examination.

Hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!

I got married last year. My wife & I are having sex regularly. During a recent gynac visit the Doctor said that still the hymen is intact in her. I need to enter more deep & break it as soon as possible. Is that right? But all these days we had enjoyed our sexual act (both of us). I have good erection all times. Is is really required to break it?

Dear Doctor, I would sincerley like to know what it is I'am currently experiencing. I had gotten close with my boyfriend recently and he inserted his penis into my vagina and made slow movements. He did not fully penetrate, however i noticed blood on the sheet. We did not do anything thereafter as I was suprised. I have read about the Hymen and its location and want to find out if there is a possiblilty I may have broken my hymen with such slow movement to the vagina I'am really concerned. If it means I have does that mean I will never bleed again during intercourse as I hope to.i have irregular periods.while going for treatement whether doctors can find out the hymen broken.?
