Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHer.
What kind of pain are you experiencing? Have you tried using a water-based lubricant product to help ease things a bit? Or have you tried different positions to see if one may be less uncomfortable? Also, have you considered what could be causing the pain? Do you think it all is physical, or do you have some psychological barriers that may need to be broken through since you say you haven't had intercourse before?
It may be worth visiting with a doctor or gynecologist to rule out any conditions that may be causing your pain. Here is an article about pain with intercourse (dyspareunia):
Hope it helps! Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
