It's not that big of an issue, but it kinda sucks... and i cant really ask anyone because I'm a bit on the shy side and this is hard enough. So whenever I put my finger in my vagina it hurts. Not that bad, but enough to not want to do anything. It just hurts around the opening when my finger touches it going in, and then its fine if I dont move my finger, but if I do, it hurts because my finger pushes against it. Is it because the opening is to small?

When you're trying this, are you fully aroused? Are you using any lubrication? If not, this is very possibly the reason it's hurting you. We're really not designed to just go into penetration with anything cold turkey.

If you think this may be a more serious problem, you'd need to see a gynecologist (which is recommended if you've begun menstruating, anyhow).

The vaginal opening can accommodate to fit a baby's head, it's not going to be too small for penetration from a finger.

Chesire, I got thje same thing when I use to use condoms with my boyfriend. It would hurt really bad, become inflamed and swollen if we used latex. I finally tossed those out the window because they caused such a bad reaction. Have you had intercourse yet? Have you ever had anything in your vagina?

FYI, if you were NOT using lubricant with your condoms, that is likely why that happened, Hantu. Another possibility was that you are latex-allergic.

Just to add, to Cheshire, if your hymen is relatively uneroded, it could be pulling on the skin around your vagina and causing a bit of pain. I know that this was the case for me in my early teens. As I got to know my body better, through tampon use and personal exploration, it became less of a problem: in addition to my hymen eroding due to these activities, I was able to work out which angles worked best so as to avoid the painful "pulling" feel.
