For most people, losing their virginity is a big deal. It’s one of those things that you may or may not have thought about for a long time. It’s also something that you probably don’t know much about.
So what should you expect when you lose your virginity? We’ve got everything from the emotional and physical to the practical, so you can get ready for whatever comes next.
Here are some common physical changes that occur when a woman loses her virginity:
1. Your breasts may become larger and more sensitive.
You might notice that your breasts feel more sensitive or tender. This can be related to the increased blood flow in your body and the change in hormone levels after having sex for the first time. The increase in blood flow will cause your breasts to swell momentarily and become firmer. This is completely normal and lasts for a short period of time.
2. Changes in the vagina
Your vagina is a muscle, and like any other muscle in your body, it can get stronger and more elastic with exercise.
When you lose your virginity, your muscles are forced to stretch slightly in order to accommodate the penis. This process causes them to become less elastic than they were before. However, if you have sex regularly over the course of your lifetime, your vagina will expand and become less elastic as you get older—making intercourse more comfortable.
3. You may bleed during or after sex due to trauma caused by the hymen breaking.
The most obvious is the hymen breaking. The hymen is a thin membrane that covers part of the vaginal opening, and it breaks when you have sex for the first time. Some women might bleed from this breaking (though not all women do), and it’s completely normal!
You may experience some pain or discomfort during her first time having sex due to pressure on the vaginal walls.
4. Your hormone levels change.
Your body will produce oxytocin which we normally call the love hormones. This will intensify your feelings and urge to have more.
Changes in your hormone level can also lead to a variety of possible emotional reactions such as sadness, anger, guilt, or disappointment if you feel like something was lost that can never be regained again
Frequently Asked Questions About What Happens When You Lose Your Virginity.
Can losing your virginity make your period late?
The short answer is: yes, it can. But the good news is that it’s pretty unlikely. The reason is that since your body is going to be producing some hormones, it will need to automatically adjust itself in this process. This will affect your circle in most cases.
Does losing your virginity make you attached?
In most cases, Yes. Reports have shown that women tend to develop a strong affinity with the man who broke their virginity.
When is the right time to lose your virginity?
There’s no one answer for that. Some people lose their virginity in high school, others wait until they’re in their 30s. Some people have never had sex with another human being, and some people are really into it (and have been since they were kids).
One thing is clear: it’s important to make sure that you’re ready to have sex before you do. If you’re not 100% sure that you’re ready, then take a step back and think about what you want out of sex and why.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Are you ready for the emotional commitment that comes along with having sex with someone?
- Do you feel ready?
- Does this person feel like someone who will treat you well?
- Is there any chance this will go badly or negatively affect your life in any way?
If so, maybe hold off on having sex for now. You can always try again later!
Is your virginity a gift?
This has been a very controversial topic.
I was raised in a very conservative family. My parents were strict and had very high expectations for my behavior, and I learned pretty early on that I had to be careful about how I lived my life and what choices I made.
When I became sexually active with my boyfriend at age 20, it was a big deal for me. It felt like taking a step into adulthood—it felt like a gift.
My boyfriend and I were virgins when we first met, and we chose to stay that way until our wedding night. We wanted to make sure that when we did have sex, it would be special and meaningful—an experience that would make us feel closer than ever before.
And it was all of those things (and more). It was truly an incredible night—one that neither of us will ever forget.
This doesn’t have to be your own story. Your virginity is something only you can decide who gets it. It may not be a gift that you reserve for anyone. Whatever happens, make sure the one you choose to have your first sex, with is someone who’s worth it. This is because, after sex, some guys tend to act out or freak out and this will leave you hanging.
