Odd statement: How would your hymen be thick & intact if you are pregnant ? Was sperm inserted using a narrow tube ? Unless you have a scheduled C-section that avoids the hymen during delivery it will be destroyed during a vaginal delivery and would likely be cut open prior to labor. Your post is confusing to say the lease. Are you really pregnant?
