Can your cherry (hymen) be popped from a tampon?

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 more

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

Some girls who are very physically active even before puberty can disrupt the hymen; most commonly a female will have slight injury to this tissue during intercourse or intimate touching. This hymenal injury and subsequent bleeding has often been called "popping the cherry." ...Read more

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 more
