Because she's crazy (probably). One common interpretation is that she's confessing that she had sex with Hamlet, and another is that with her overprotective family dead, she's delirious with the sexual opportunities that have just opened up. The important thing is that it's very inappropriate, which shows she's not in her right mind.

I guess it shows that convent-bred girls know more about the facts of life that you'd think. Actually we know that Ophelia is not naïve from her conversations with her brother and father in Act 1, where both of them warn her specifically not to let Hamlet into her pants.
