Hard to guess, but: Usually not an issue. Hymen is the border between a vagina's inside and the outside vulva. Only in cases of alleged sexual assault on women do we physicians engage in careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are big, small, broken, or not broken.
