I'm 18 and have been with my boyfriend for about six months now. I was a virgin before I met him. We've been having sex for just over two months and up until recently there was never a problem. I've been on the pill for a month and a half and after my first 'period' on the pill (during which I did not have sex) I have become incredibly tight and it has been difficult for my partner to penetrate me. I assumed that this was just down to not having had sex for a while, however the problem hasn't gone away. Without wanting to go into too much detail, my boyfriend also struggled to insert two fingers into me. I mentioned this in passing to a nurse when I went to get a repeat prescription for the pill and she put it down to vaginal dryness caused by the change in hormones (something which admittedly does seem to be a factor) however, I'm concerned that this isn't the main problem as according to my boyfriend there feels like an actual 'wall' or blockage of some sort that he has to break through.

I'd be interested to hear any advice that anyone might be able to give and it'd be especially good to hear if anyone else has ever had this problem or has any idea what it could be.

  • Dryness could be a complicating factor. Hormones also can affect the elasticity of vaginal tissues. Lack of use can cause a shrinkage too. There are some circumstances in which the vaginal muscles clamp down so tightly that even 1 finger doesn't fit. Some might suggest a visit to an ob-gyn specializing in sexual problems. Perhaps a good yoni massage by a one skilled in the tantric arts could. Are you hitting any "issues" around sex or anythiong like that?If this had been the situation prior to the pill one suggestion might be scar tissue or other results from sexual abuse and a series of cylinders in graduated sizes to stretch out your tissues slowly and gently. Good luck
