the past year i have noticed when i have sex i can feel my boyfriends penis hitting something almost like a wall in the back of my vagina, i know something is wrong because i have felt myself and i believe it may be my uterus im not sure though, when i feel the inside of my vagina i can literally push what ever it is upward and then i feel pressure, i believe i may have a prolapsed uterus but i dont understand why i am only 20 yrs old. i have no clue what type of doctor to go to or who to talk to please give me some answers
Vagina has enough space to accomodate penis as it enlarges and elongates during the intercourse.The upper portion of the vagina is known as cervix and sometimes during penetration the penis can hit the cervix.It seems that you are experiencing that.It either happens if the woman is not properly aroused or if the thrusting is too deep.Have lots of foreplay before insertion so that you are well lubricated.You can also ask him to finger you for arousal and then start intercourse.Changing sexual positions would also help.
When a woman is properly aroused the cervix is lifted up as the vagina elongates.There is no possibility of prolapse at such a young stage and that also without any symptoms.If the problem persists kindly see a Gynaecologist for evaluation.
