I have read all previous msg's relating to this topic though have not found one quite similar. My long-term boyfriend and I, a year ago, attempted to have sex, (we are both virgins) though were unsuccessful as we didn't "fit" he could not get it in. He had protection and we were both lubricated but it wouldn't work. We have tried several other times and still have the same result. Is it possible I could be too small or tight? I am 18 years old and have never used a tampon either, i tried once and inserted it, not completely, i had to stop because i became nauseous and vomited. My b/f and I are both very happy with our relationship and both feel no pressure to have sex though i am slightly worried their could be something wrong with me, is this possible? and what should i do? If you have any advice it would be appreciated.

Remember that the vagina is designed to allow a baby through, so (unless you have a medical anomaly such as androgen insensitity syndrome, in which case you wouldn't have a uterus or periods either) it's not going to be "too small" for a penis.
However, if all penetration is impossible, it's possible that you could have a problem such as vaginismus (where the vaginal muscles tense up to make penetration impossible), or a very tough hymen which won't erode at all. So the best plan at this point would be for you to see a gynecologist and get things checked out.
