No: Many women who are virgins can successfully use tampons. It should be fine as long as it is not painful or uncomfortable.

You may have: an unperforated hymen. See a GYNECOLOGIST who can open this with local anesthesia! Hope this helps Dr Z

Good question : Once hymen is broken you likely won't have those problems. You may want to stick to pads in the meantime.
