Is it important to break the hymen to be pregnant? And if the hymen breaks will it bleed?
For a pregnancy to occur it's needs only one sperm to fertilize an ovum which can pass any small foramen. Even sperm can travel inside if a semen has come into contact with vulva or vagina. It may bleed when a hymen breaks.

Importance of Foreplay!

Importance of Foreplay!

Foreplay refers to the preliminary acts preceding the sexual intercourse. Foreplay isn’t given much importance although it is the crucial part of the entire sexual experience.

Why is it important?

Biological Perspective: From the biological perspective, it is extremely important, especially for a woman to indulge in foreplay. Foreplay enhances the arousal, thus causing the erection of the clitoris. The clitoris functions similar to that of the penis. The rushing of blood to the clitoris leads to its erection which is necessary to achieve an orgasm. Foreplay also elicits vaginal wetness which makes the proceeding penetrative sex easier and painless for both, the man and the woman. The lack of vaginal wetness causes the sexual intercourse to be rather painful and sometimes involve some amount of bleeding. Contrary to the popular myth, foreplay is equally important for both the sexes. According to research, men and women both reported of achieving better orgasms when there was a greater build-up of sexual arousal.

Psychological Perspective: From the psychological perspective, foreplay instills the feeling of security and causes less vulnerability. The lack of foreplay apparently gives a sense of being neglected and denies the emotional assurance needed by most. Research shows foreplay enhances the relationship of the couple outside the bedroom. Foreplay is essentially important in long term relationships as it helps in enhancing the feelings of togetherness. Foreplay is also important in letting the partner feel they have your attention and care. It is essential in instilling psychological security and emotional wellness.

Also, it is necessary to achieve mutual pleasure from the sexual act and hence, attention must be given to the need of both the partners for a fulfilling experience. Foreplay is important in achieving orgasm, especially for women who do not necessarily achieve an orgasm through penetrative sex. With everything said and done, there is nothing wrong with an occasional skipping of the foreplay if that is what both the partners want. It is important to see what each partner is getting out of the entire sexual experience and work according to it. 

Tips to have a great foreplay-

  1. Aim for the area around the lips: People mostly focus on the plump part of the lips, ignoring a sensual, arousing sweet spot which borders the lips. Your lips and its periphery contain several blood vessels. Slowly brushing through that area will give you a tingling, almost ticklish sensation that will run through your spine.
  2. The little triangle: The entire neck region is a highly erogenous spot. This includes the ears and the spot behind it, the neck and the shoulders. However, the junction where the collarbone meets your neck, the little triangle, has a thinner skin enveloping it. Linger around the spot a little longer maybe, before running down to the more obvious erogenous regions.
  3. Trail the thighs: The area around your thighs is home to one of the most explosive nerves that can simply make your breath go into hyper-drive. Start with supple, soft kisses around your thighs, with stray light strokes. This excites your genital area more because the nerves on the thighs directly lead to the genitals. This move will probably have your partner asking for more.
  4. Talk dirty: This act can have your partner flying off the handles if done right. You may want to test the temperature first in order to know what degree of talks does your partner like. Whether he is into low-key dirty talks or full-blown adjectives.

If it is bleeding while intercourse that you r worried, you have to get a check up done by your gynecologist. If you are worried for pregnancy, there are least chances of your getting pregnant because it was your 8th day of period provided your cycles are regular. But mind well any unprotected intercourse have some chances of pregnancy always.

I am a 28 year old male, 2 weeks back me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex and she took an ipill, after a few days she had reddish/brownish discharge for a few days. This happened again last week and she took another ipill, but there's no discharge of any kind like last time. Her actual cycle is supposed to be end of every month. So we're worried about pregnancy. What is the safest, pain free and best way to get rid of the pregnancy in case she is pregnant?

Emergency contraceptives like I pill are known to cause hormonal imbalance and result in abnormal bleeding. Regular and casual use of such emergency pills can result in long term irregular cycles and issues. Hence it's use is not encouraged.

Hello- It seems that you are suffering from weak erection issue. Lack of sex drive and erectile dysfunction are sexual problems that can result from low testosterone. Conditions that affect the heart and its ability to pump blood well can cause impotence. Without enough blood flow to the penis, a person can't achieve an erection. Atherosclerosis, a condition that causes the blood vessels to become clogged, can cause impotence. It can be reversed and can be recovered with proper diagnosis and treatment.

it's most of the time anxiety and scare which causes pain rather than the sex per say.. u have to make her comfortable and confident... hopefully it helps.. other reasons like tight hymen or infection should be ruled out still.
