User avatar Hello Vhyne,

A virgin is a person, male or female, that has not experienced sexual intercourse. If intercourse was painful and couldn’t be continued it may be because you weren’t relaxed, (that would be something your boyfriend would have to work on with foreplay), or he was being too aggressive or rough or it could be that your hymen is too tight. I would recommend making an appointment with your Gynecologist for a checkup and birth control plan before continuing with your boyfriend’s advances.
