My girlfriend and I have been dating for a little over a year, we're both 19 years old. I recently took her virginity and have some questions. Her hymen has been broken for a couple years but she lost her virginity to me in the beginning of August. Since then we've had sex about 6 or 7 times. The first time we had sex it hurt her a lot but she was wet enough that we could do it for a while before she told me to stop. She described the feeling as a stinging feeling with some cramps. It was pretty much the same the second time as well. By the third time the stinging feeling was gone, but she says that she still experiences occasional "cramps" as well as a consistent feeling of soreness(for lack of a better word to describe it, she says). I don't know if it's because we have been having sex too much. There has been at least one day separating each time we've done it. I never have a problem fitting inside her, I'm of average size and there is always a lot of foreplay so that she's usually very wet once we start. Is this normal? Are there any ways to make it more pleasurable and less painful for her, or is it just a matter of her getting used to it? I guess this isn't the best place to ask since there are certainly more guys than girls on this site, but I figure maybe some of you have had similar experiences with your partners and could share some insight.
