Bloated After First Time

Dear allbodies,

 

I just lost my virginity (first time I’ve ever experienced vaginal-penile penetration) last night… but I’ve been super bloated and gassy ever since. Is this normal?

 

Sincerely,

Dear #ConcernedLaterBloomer

 

First of all, good for you for being so in tune with your body and asking questions about the changes you’re experiencing. Having bloating, gas, even a little pain is normal after your first few penetration experiences. Think about the muscles in your vagina like you would any other set of muscles. When you try a new exercise or push your physical boundaries in a new way, you can get sore, tender, and maybe a little swollen. Being penetrated is a new thing for your vagina and it’s surrounding organs, and they’re responding accordingly. You should be fine within a day or two. This being said, if you notice any itching, smell, unusual discharge, or extended pain, take yourself to a doctor.

Love,

Amy Boyajian
