Hi I'm 17 years old, doessex hurt for me because I'm too young or my partner is too big for me?


Hi Victoriakiman, thank you for reaching out to us. You have asked a really good question. Painful sex could happen for a whole number of reasons. It really mostly depends on the person and the situation. If you are not sufficiently aroused you may not have produced enough fluids for lubrication in which case you could use a lubricant. Another reason could be vaginismus which is a recurrent or persistent involuntary tightening of muscles around the vagina whenever penetration is attempted. It can disrupt or completely stop your sex life and can lead to distress, a loss of confidence, and relationship problems. It is also possible that you and your partner are not talking about sex and what you enjoy which means it ends up being about what you have heard it is about and not what you actually like.
Please remember that below the age of 18 you are not ready to have sex and you could get into legal trouble. Consider waiting until both of you are aove 18.
