Not sealing back: Normally, once the hymen is torn, it does not heal-back. Often, a woman does not even know/feel the hymen is being torn. Simple hygiene activities such as use of tampon can tear it and it causes no pain. It is a thin membrane and once torn, it will remain so. Slight bleeding/discomfort may occur, but heavy bleeding/pain should be checked. Consult doc. Good luck.
