First time sex tends to be filled with uncertainty for most. It could be painful if your partner penetrates before you are relaxed enough and if you are not lubricated enough. Talking your partner through it is important – let him or her know where you and your body are at and what he/she needs to do to help you to relax more. Sex is a couple experience and the more both enjoys it the better the impact on your sex life in the long run. Using of artificial lubrication that you can buy over the counter will also be helpful to avoid dryness that could increase the possibility of pain. Using condoms will also help to prevent unwanted pregnancies. It might also be worth your while to visit you doctor to get his/her advise on contraception possibilities other than the pill.
