OK, here goes... I have a couple questions that I'd like to know a bit about.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I lost our virginity to each other. We've fooled around a lot before and in both instances I've noticed that when either his fingers or his penis presses against my cervix, it hurts. I want to know if this is normal, and if it is will it hurt every time we have sex?

Secondly, I was wondering if you can get birth control pills confidentially from a doctor. I live in Canada, I don't know if there are any planned parenthood clinics nearby. I know doctor's offices here give away free condoms but I'm not sure about birth control pills.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Yes, it's normal for a cervix to hurt when knocked, and the best thing to do would be to change positions to avoid it. Sorry there's not more I can suggest.

A doctor or health clinic should, to my knowledge, be able to provide you with BC pills confidentially. I'm not sure what there is in your area, and I'm not currently able to load Planned Parenthood's site, but looking in your phone book under 'Clinics' should provide some help. Most large-ish cities will have sexual health clinics.

Thanks for the tips.

My city's not exactly large-ish, it's sort of small, but thanks for the tip on checking out the yellow pages!

Yes the cervix does hurt when knock in many/most womenas noted above. If would seem unlikely to me however, that your cervix could be reached with fingers, it's fairly deep inside. I'm not saying it's impossible, just unlikely.

Well, I can reach my cervix with my fingers with no trouble .

Remember, different people have different bodies, and the exact positioning and angle of the cervix in the vagina can vary quite a bit (as can finger length ).

Actually, most women can reach their cervixes rather easily.

The vagnial canal is rarely more than six inches deep, and the cervix juts into it.
