Doctor explains why pain when losing virginity is BS - Business Insider
You're stretching a lot of muscles and tissue that aren't used to moving around, so it's completely normal to feel pain afterwards however, this should be more of a soreness and more… swelled feeling. If you experience burning, go to the doctor as soon as possible. Similarly, bleeding is also common! You can bleed a little, a lot, or not at all!
It can be normal too be a bit sore after having sex for the first time. You have to be careful when putting any oil based product in the vagina like coconut oil, Vaseline etc… as this could cause problems to your normal vaginal bacterial balance and result in uncomfortable symptoms. The body is really good at healing itself and most of the time it just needs a bit of time to heal itself. I would recommend not putting anything in the vagina and taking it easy until your body heals. If for some reason it does not get better or starts to get worse I would suggest seeing a health professional to see what is going on.
