Hi Lizzy,

Thank you for your question. I am not sure how old you are but if you intend on having sex, you should always take precautions such as get on birth control and always use condoms. Sex is enjoyable and shouldn't be painful. The main reason why woman will have pain is if the vaginal area is dry. Once women are aroused, the vaginal area will become wet which provides lubrication and should not be painful. I hope this helps with your question. If you have additional questions, please feel free to ask.
