The vagina is a body part that does not have a static size or level of flexibility. How felxible it is or isn't with intercourse is primarily about whether or not a person feels very relaxed and aroused at the time.

So, really, the way to create the best physical outcomes this way is the same stuff that tends to result in the best emotional outcomes. In other words, just only opting into intercourse if and when it is what you really, really want, including physically, not just emotionally, and something you truly feel comfortable with, including comfort with a sexual partner.

When all that is going on, unless someone has a pain condition or a partner who is being very aggressive, vulval and vaginal pain is unlikely. When pain occurs, it's most often because those things are NOT going on. Make sense?

There aren't "exercises" for the vagina saving an exercise to tone the vaginal muscles, which is not an issue for a young, per-menopausal woman who hasn't given birth.

Again, I think you're thinking pain would be about the anatomy of your vagina in a way that doesn't make sense with how this all actually works.

When you are relaxed and very aroused, with a sensitive partner, and intercourse is what you really, really want, you are not likely to experience pain. Intercourse isn't something to "get through" in that way.
