What Happens When A Girl Loses Her Virginity?
What happens to a girl's body when she loses her virginity? What symptoms does she experience after first-time sex? Will there be pain or bleeding?
First, if you are planning to have sexual intercourse you need to think about protection, not only so you don't become pregnant but also so you don't get a sexually transmitted disease. Symptoms that you might experience include pain and bleeding, though this is not always the case for everyone. The experience can also make you emotionally uncomfortable, since sex can make both women and men feel vulnerable.
Here is a very good resource which talks all about what your first time may be like, and here are some other links you might find useful, as well:
