Where hymen located? How can I see my hymen? How can I know that mt hymen is teared or not?? Tell me plz
It is the front door: The hymen, if present forms the entrance to the vagina. It can form in a way that totally covers the entrance with no opening for menstrual blood to exit. This produces problems in puberty.It can also disappear in a fetus or be lost in early childhood. You should expect to find it about a half inch deep inside if the labia minora. You can find pictures with a search engine. ...Read more
Hymen doesn't matter: A person is a virgin before he or she has sexual intercourse for the first time. The person is no longer a virgin the moment after he or she begins to have sex for the first time. For many good reasons, teens should wait (a few years) and not have sex while they are young. For adults, looking at the big picture in the grand scheme of life, being a virgin should not and does not matter at all. ...Read more

An intact hymen is a sign of virginity, but a hymen can break from sports, gymnastics or horseback riding. Even if your hymen breaks you are still a virgin if you haven't had sex. ...Read more

Am I vigrin? I had never sex and never put anything inside my vagina. I can't see my hymen because is a cyst there. Will I bleed in first time?
Use a mirror: If a woman looks between her labia (that means pulling the labia a little bit apart), the first thing she sees is her hymen area. The question of course, is why is she saying there is a cyst. A primary care doctor can examine and look for the "cyst", to make sure it is not something worrisome. There may be a little spotting or bleeding (sometimes preventable) with first sex. ...Read more
When I was 5 years old I bled from vagina, I never had sex. I can't see my hymen and vaginal opening because something prevent view, will I bleed 1 sex?
Hard to say: You provide no detail on why you bled @ 5.An injury in childhood could tear the hymen. If so it may or may not have torn it enough it would not bleed with 1st sex. Your doc could examine and see. It should not matter, some girls are born without a hymen. Its presence does not prove virginity, just lack of vaginal sex. ...Read more
I was schedule to see a gyne for my septate hymen, first time. Will she inspect me by poking me down there?
Sure hope so: If a woman goes in to check her septate hymen, she should expect to have her hymen checked. If that doesn't happen, she's probably at the wrong doctor's office. The way to check a hymen (can be done at home) is just to grab one labia with the right thumb and finger, and grab the other labia with the left thumb and finger, and then pull outwards gently. The holes in the middle should be visible. ...Read more
My general dr. Manually checked to see if my hymen was intact, and it was. Does that mean that it is not stretched not have any tears?

There is a tear part of my hymen and I can see a small hole on it and its slightly painful, what causes this and what should I do? Still a Virgin btw
You don't need to: Do anything unless it is bothering you. A female's hymen is not likely to be competely intact at age 18. If there were no holes in the hymen - blood would not be able to exit the body during your period. On the other hand, If you are having continual pain - get it checked out. ...Read more
I have a question about hymen I have checked my self and I can see little thin tissue how can I know it is intact and could hymen be partially broken?
Hymen often break wi: It is a normal occurrence for the hymen to break with physical activity over the years, even if a person had never been sexually active. This should not cause any problems and should not be any reason for concern but as always, check with your ob/gyn to be sure. ...Read more
Hi. I wanted to see my hymen so I took a mirror and five inches in I saw a pink vertical line kind of thing like a septate. Is it my hymen?

I tryed to see my hymen with a mirror but I can't see anythingbecause there is something like meet in round form. I had never had sex. I am virgin?
If my general doctor manually tested to see that my hymen was intact, and she said that it was. Does that mean it is as if nothing happened to it?
Don't know.: Don't know exactly what she meant and not sure I know what you mean either. Hymens come in all different kinds of configurations - apparently yours is "intact." Which I suspect is normal - understanding there is a large range of normal..... You will have to ask your doc specifically what she meant by that. ...Read more
I'm virgin. I never had sex but I can see a transection like at 3 o clock on my hymen when I look it in the mirror. Will it bleed at my first night?
Maybe/not: Some girls are born with little hymen tissue or lose what they have in childhood in a non-sexual event. Some have one so thick and hard it must be surgically opened because "first time" sex will never get through. You have what you have & may or may not bleed. You know you're a virgin & don't need that marker for proof, because it isn't proof. Think of all the partner sex that avoids the vagina ...Read more
Hi. I am 22, I was molested when I was younger and I want to know if that can break the hymen? I went to see a doc who said that my hymen wasn't there
I tryed to see my hymen but I can't see anything because there is something that not allowed that. I have periods. I am virgin. Will I bleed first time?
Some do: Some women will have a small amount of bleeding but this is not as common as popular culture would have you believe. I suspect the something that was blocking your view was in fact your hymen. Since you are having periods you will still be able to see a small opening. ...Read more
I have a cut in my vagina when I spread it I can see it outside of what I think is called a hymen. It is like a corner, should I be worried?
Cut on vagina: Genital skin usually heals relatively fast if there is no repeated trauma or infection. If there is a superficial cut or tear, treating the area gently is usually sufficient for it to heal. If there is redness, pain or swelling, the cut may need to be looked at by a doctor to make sure there is no infection. ...Read more

Is rubing clitoris only can tear the hymen? Tell me with details, I cant see my hymen why? I see only my smal vaginal opning hole around with tight skin
Hymen: Your hymen is not a piece of tissue that covers the opening to the vagina. It is a small piece of tissue on one side of the vaginal wall, crescent shaped. It can be stretched in many ways prior to any sexual intercourse. The definition of being a virgin is someone who hasn't had sex, with or without an intact hymen. ...Read more
I have my periods regularly when I checked my vulva, I didn't see any hole, just a pink stuff which I guess is the hymen which covered, is this normal?
See an OB/GYN: No. You should be able to see a vaginal inlet (hole), although you may not be examining yourself appropriately. If you have a sexual partner, but have not engaged in penetrating activities you might ask them to look. The hymen is usually a small ways into the vagina and if you are having periods is not blocking the vaginal outlet. Go and get seen. Good luck. ...Read more

Good question: But you'd have to ask the doctor to answer it. ...Read more
I want to know if my hymen is still intact. My boyfriend fingers me. When I open the labia I see a white skin covers top to bottom with small opening.
Probably: Whitish membrane described may well be your hymen. However, you might have labial adhesions, if inner labia are somewhat fused together and there is only a small opening under clitoris. Young women with labial adhesions usually have a slight urinary dribble after voiding. Such adhesions are easy to separate & hymen can still remain intact. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Your timing of intimacy and intercourse is close to the vicinity of ovulation for most females. Therefore, do HPT in a week after missing the next period and repeat it in a wk if the first test is (-) & still in doubt. Besides, seek counseling to upgrade the practice of safe sex so to avoid future worry or second guess for possible unwanted pregnancy. Best wish. .. ...Read more

I was told by a doctor I may have a benign skin tag? I looked up photos and what I see is not what I have. It's a pink string that hangs (not hymen)
Trust your doc: If you have been seen and evaluated, that process is a lot more dependable than a trip to the net. Your chances of seeing a posted picture nearly identical to your problem is unlikely, especially if it involves the area of genitals. Any second opinion you seek should be supported by a direct exam. ...Read more
See Below: There are only really 2 types of hymen, perforate (open) and imperforate (closed). The perforate hymen can come in different types of opening (slit, septum or microperoforate). Which means that they are partially open. If you are seeing your periods, then it is perforate. Once you have intercourse, most hymens will tear to become normal. ...Read more
