Hi, this is a throwaway account, I also plan to see a gyno (already made appointment) but will not be seeing them for a few weeks.
So masturbating is something I do often. I only ever stimulate my clitoris, so I experience my orgasms from that. I'm a 23 y/o virgin, and yesterday I tried to penetrate myself with a finger. When I try, there's this... bulge(?) once I try to enter with my finger. When I'm sitting or standing, I can't penetrate myself at all, because it gets in the way.
I can only do it when I lay down; I can slip my finger in by going under the bulge (which is located at the ceiling inside of the vagina, a centimeter or two from the entrance). It doesn't feel like a small lump or anything like that, it has ridges and the texture of a vaginal wall, and it doesn't hurt when I rub it. But once I try slipping another finger, that's when I start to feel stretched out and experience pain. + I get wet fine, I self-lubricate quite a lot.
I checked myself in the mirror today, and there's this pinkish thing covering the entrance of my vagina. I don't think that's the hymen though, because I don't know if the hymen is supposed to be in the shape of a large bulge from the roof of the vagina. I googled and there's results for prolapse, which could be the case, but I don't have any of the symptoms other than just the bulging itself. It's making it difficult to slip anything in, I can't imagine how my bf is gonna be able to penetrate me at all if I can only slip one finger in when only I'm laying down.
Is this normal? What is the inside of the vagina supposed to feel like when you insert?

This post also resembles exactly what I am experiencing.
Thanks for the help in advance, any advice or personal experiences would be appreciated.
