Can A Tampon Break Your Cherry
Easily: It may be small enough in diameter to slip in, but since it will become larger in diameter after it absorbs menstrual blood, the hymen can be torn when it is removed.The term is a rather crude one cited by teen males for achieving success at a sexual encounter with a virgin.I would not apply it to this event. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If I use a super absorbent tampon, will it rupture my cherry? Please reply because i'm thinking of using one as pads are uncomfortable when i workout
You decide: Remember that a tampon absorbs menstrual blood & will become thicker in the process. If you can slide it in without difficulty, it may have room to be extracted without pain/tearing. However, if it is a tight fit going in, expect problems getting it out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Im16 years old and me and my boyfriend have already had sex 3 times and i didn't bleed for any of them is my cherry is popped if i didn't use tampons?
Yes, but...: The "cherry is popped", but that is an ongoing myth. In the modern world, one should not be thinking of cherries (except the bing, ranier, and other varieties found at the farmers' market), and one should not be thinking of "popping cherries". So, a person is a virgin until he/she has sex for the first time. It is normal for a woman to bleed a little and it is normal for her not to bleed at all. ...Read more
Losing virginity.: The hymen is a ring of tissue at the entrance to the vagina.

This hymenal injury and subsequent bleeding has often been called "popping the cherry." ...Read more
I left a tampon in today for 11 hours accidentally. It won't happen again, as I'm taking a break from using them. Am I at risk of TSS?
Once surgically removing septate hymen, will there still be normal/extra hymen left over to break (pop cherry) during sex, or will it be totally gone?
No: Surgically, it will be 'gone in 60 seconds'. ...Read more
Can part of a tampon break off while in use? I used one last night before bed and woke up with no period until later that night. This is not normal.
Yes: Just about anything can break, although tampons normally don't. With that said, I suspect you want to know what to do next, right? 2 choices: check inside yourself - you can't lose anything inside your vagina b/c it's like a pouch. Or go to ER or see your Family Doc/GYN/Planned Parenthood for someone else to take a look see. Of note, irregular menses are common but so are STDs/STIs w/o condom use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
