My boyfriend and I recently tried to have sex for the first time and he was unable to penetrate me and the attempt was rather painful. I have normal periods, sometimes irregular cycles but not that irregular, maybe a few days off. I m not sure how much of a hymen I have left because I m not sure how to check. I m rather worried if everything is shaped right down there.

i was in a relationship approximately 5 years before. my ex boyfriend wanted me to sit on him nude. i am not interested in sex till today so i asked him never try to fuck. i trust and sat on him like his cock touching my vagina. when i did not expect he just tried to move him cock and with some force. for a second r less it hit my vagina where i got up and started to yell and cry. later we noticed that i was actually bleeding. he said that he never felt anything even not nearly entering my vagina. after that till today i am not in relationship or had any kind of sexual relationship with anyone. when i try to look at my vagina i can see a a upside triangle shape in the entrance of my vagina. when i insert a finger its realy tight. i wan to know if i lost my virgin or not.

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!
