First time sex
I am getting married soon and would like to ask a few questions regarding sex (I have heard so many stories and do not know what the truth is anymore). When we have sex for the first time, will I bleed? Will it be very painfull and does it get less painfull after the first time? Is it true that a man will know when he has sex with a woman, that she is a virgin - can he feel it?

The experience varies form person to person. Not all women bleed and not all women have lots of pain. There will be some discomfort and this can be helped by relaxing with lots of foreplay and perhaps using KY jelly. If the sex is painful, your partner will know. It gets better after the first time.
