Q. Does Sex Hurt the First Time?
Ans. The first time a woman has sex, it may or may not be painful. There may be
psychological and physical reasons for it. If you are not sure about your partner or if
you are not entirely convinced about the timing and place, then you may feel more pain
than you should. If you and your partner truly care for one another and he is gentle and
understanding and will go slowly, then there may be less discomfort.
Physically, often, the first time a woman has sex there will be some bleeding as the
hymen is torn. Using large amounts of a water-based lubricant may help. If you have
been using tampons, that may have helped to stretch your hymen.
Q. What is the G-Spot?
Ans. There is a lot of talk regarding the most erotic zones for a woman. The Grafenberg
spot, or G-spot, is considered to be one such area. This is an area located within the front
wall of the vagina, about one centimetre from the surface and one-third to one-half way
in from the vaginal opening.
The significance of the G-spot is that in about half the women it is a highly sensitive area

Q. Is it O.K. to have Sex during a Period?
As. Sex during periods is a strong taboo in many cultures but there is no scientific
basis for it .For the average, mutually monogamous couple with no sexually transmitted
disease, there is no medical reason to avoid sex during menses. In fact many women feel
increased sexual arousal during the periods.
Q. I feel pain during sex. What could be the reason?
Ans. There may be a host of reasons for painful intercourse. Pain on initial penetration
is often due to infection, spasm of the vaginal muscles or inadequate lubrication. Pain on
deeper thrusting may be caused by endometriosis, adhesions (scar tissue), a retroverted
(backward-tilting) uterus or fibroids. Pain in only one particular position may simply
mean that in that position, your partner is pushing against your cervix.
Persistent pain in all the positions should prompt a visit to your gynecologist for a
thorough checkup.
Q. Is it a fact that a woman must bleed at the first attempt at sexual intercourse?
Ans. No! Such bleeding usually occurs due to the rapture of the hymen in virgins. However,
the hymen may be absent from birth or might rupture while playing games, doing exercises
or using tampons. Hence, a woman may not bleed during the first sexual intercourse though
she is a virgin. We have seen many marriages on the rocks because of this misconception. It
is a matter of a big issue over a small tissue!
Q. I suffer bleeding after Intercourse. Is it cause to worry?
Ans. Bleeding after intercourse (post-coital bleeding in doctor talk) can occur for several
reasons. Infection is one of the most common reasons. Abnormal cervical cells, including
cancer, are also more easily irritated and may bleed with intercourse. Women who use an
IUD or diaphragm may experience such bleeding from irritation and friction. Sometimes
the bleeding is not from the cervix, but rather from a tear in the vagina; tears can happen
with vigorous sex or if you are dry.
