I have a skin covering the vaginal hole and it hurts during intercourse. Do i need a surgery ?

i have a bit of skin below and kind of covering the vagina hole, is this my hymen? i attempted to have sex with my boyfriend and it was too sore because of this bit of skin, it tore a bit and then healed back up. Do i have to get this surgically removed in order to have painless sex?

I have a small flap of skin right below the vagina, that partially covers the opening when the hole is stretched. It is not inside, but outside the vagina. During my first attempt to have sex with my husband, the skin tore, and the doctors recommended a wait period for it to heal. Now its been a month, and the skin is healed, but everytime I attempt sex, the skin stretches/tears again, causing pain. Can you please recommend a way to overcome this problem?

hello. I had vaginal prolapse surgery about three years ago. I have been in excruciating pain during intercourse ever since. I returned to my doctor several times. She told me I was perfect inside, but under examination she needed to use a childrens size device to look inside my vagina. She gave me the name of a doctor who specializes in womens vagina and sexual health. I went to him last summer. He had me put a glass dildo inside my vagina. It felt fine, but it was quite small. When he increased the diameter of the next one, it was too painful to insert. It felt like the scales of a fish were being pressed backwards, razor like pain. He then gave me one to take home that was I guessed to be the equivalent in size to my husband. I worked with it for a month, rubbing estrace cream on it and massaging myself and then entering it in me. It hurt a bit, felt tight, but the pain subsided as I my body relaxed and got lubricated. I was excited to have intercourse with my husband. When we tried, It was horrible, the pain was unbearable. I never went back to him and have just ignored the issue. I cant take it any longer. My husband has been so patient, but we have no sex life. I intend to go see the doctor again, but he is from washington and is only here 1x a month and he costs 600$ a visit. I cant afford this. I feel that i already spent so much to have the surgery. Honestly, I have never heard of anyone having this problem except for one woman I just discovered this evening on the website. I live in NY and was recommended to a highly regarded doctor in the field by an A++ doctor who specializes in menopause. Please, can someone help me, will I ever recover?

My girlfriend s vagina is very sensitive. We havent had intercourse, but when i put my finger between her labia it hurts her. If i move my finger closer towards the vaginal hole (about 2 cm in the labia) it hurts more and more. Both of us have been tested for and STI s and we are clean. We are both really worries about this. She is unsure and worried if she will ever be able to have sex.

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.?
