I’m honestly glad I didn’t wait longer than I did. I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend, now husband, when we were both 18. I’m now 24 and I almost wish I had done it earlier. I have something that’s known as vulvodynia and pelvic floor dysfunction. I could have sex with virtually no problem whatsoever for a year when we were in college and then all of a sudden, I started to have pain. Now it has come to the point that I can’t have it at all without being in utter agony. I’m on eight pills and have to do therapy, but that still hasn’t relieved it in the year since I started doing intensive work on my problems. My husband is great, but since I no longer have a sex drive due to said issues, it’s hard to get back into anything more than cuddling.
