Hello, I wanted to know if a girl is a virgin and she has sex for the first time, will her vagina stretch or become physically damaged for life? This question has been troubling me for years. The vagina may be stretched during intercourse but it will regain its original shape soon after the act. It will not be damaged if the intercourse is done in a proper and gentle manner. If the penetration occurs after the vagina has been lubricated, then there will be no pain.
