Hello I'm an 19 year old virgin. Is it normal for virgins to have pain around the opening of the vagina? Whenever I touch the area I feel extreme pain and I don't even dare to try to put a finger inside. I feel some small dots around the opening that are really sore. May there be an ifection of some kind or is this normal? Should I see a doctor?

PS. I haven't had any form of sex so STD's are out of the question I guess..

Thank you, Sandy

Sandy, Do you use tampons? Did this start recently? Do you have any strange or foul smells? Do you have a discharge that is a weird color or texture? Does this happen every day of your menstrual cycle?

It is not normal. You have to see your doctor. I might be as simple as an infection.

Best of luck!

Thank you very much for the reply!

I can only feel the pain when I touch the mentioned area. Not sure when this started but I have had it for a long time already. It hurts too much so I haven't even tried to use a tampon. No smells and no discharges. I guess I should visit the doctor then..

Thanks again - Sandy

This is not normal at all for a virgin or non virgin. I would advice you to see a gynecologist as soon as possible.

Your doctor will have to examine you to determine what it is. There are quite a few conditions that can cause it, and depending on how, when and where the pain is caused and felt, your doctor can refer you to a specialist to treat it.

Best of luck!
