My boyfriend fingered me very hard earlier and I bled a lot. Ive had sex before so I didn't think it was my cherry popping but could it have been?
Doubt it: If you've had intercourse before it's highly likely your hymen broke at that time. If he was fingering your vagina very hard as you describe it's more likely that he made a small (or large) tear in the lining of your vagina.I would avoid any kind of intercourse or fingering until you feel healed and maybe even want to consider having your doc take a look at it to determine the severity of the tear ...Read more
So it's my first time having sex, I'm extremely scared about my cherry popping and the blood going everywhere, do you have any suggestions for me?
No need to worry: Your concerns are completely understandable. However the amount of bleeding from the hymen is very small, and resolves on its own. Place a towel either on top or underneath the sheets, to put you at ease. Your partner will probably be very supportive and understanding. And of course, ALWAYS use condoms to protect against pregnancy and STDs. ...Read more
Penis rubbed against vagina, no pre-cum, no full ejaculation and no penetration, no signs of cherry popping, can she be pregnant?
No, but...: The odd to conceive under the reported scenario should be next to zero in considering the high fastidious requirement for sperm survival. Nonetheless, still do HPT in a week after missing the expected period and repeat it in another week if the first test is (-) and still in doubt. Besides, get counseling for heightening the standard of responsible safe sex against pregnancy & STDs. ...Read more
Requires intercourse: If you were a virgin, and had an intact hymen, then the first penetration should "pop" the cherry. Some lack a hymen or accidentally opened it earlier in life in other activities. The classic sign is bleeding onto the sheets. But in many cases there is nothing you can feel and nothing external. ...Read more
Rupture of Hymen: That is difficult to tell without a physical exam. Typically females have a membrane at the introitus (entrance) of the vagina that incompletely covers the opening (though rarely it is imperforate). During intercourse this is commonly torn and leads to some hemorrhage, which is considered normal. It is impossible to tell from the whether that has happened to you or not. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

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

Can you be pregnant witout busting your cherry? I only had my period for a day, tender breasts, tiredness and backachesSymptoms 4 day after. Pregnant?
Not really: "popping the cherry" refers to the first intercourse with a virgin woman.

It is possible to partially break this, so a second time on intercourse might tear the rest and cause a little more bleeding. This would not be a second loss of virginity however. ...Read more

Sex information: The hymen is not something that is "popped". It's a thin piece of tissue, crescent shaped, inside the vagina. It can be stretched out in many ways- by fingers, masturbation, sex toys, or accidentally. In fact, there is no reason that it should be forceably broken and cause bleeding. Virginity is not even clearly defined- some say "any" sex, some say "vaginal intercourse". You decide for you. ...Read more

Safe Sex or Abstain: If this is the first time you had sex, the bleeding is from breaking the hymen, which is like a ring around the opening of vagina. Please consider contraception and always always use condoms to prevent infection. I realize that you might have to speak to your parents about this for it to happen because of your age, but that will be far better than getting pregnant. The best policy is to abstain. ...Read more

Been sexually active for 4 years, 8 partners, never had my "cherry pop"? No bleeding, still have pain when someone goes "too deep"?
You didn't realize: "cherry pop" is a euphemism describing the breakdown of your hymen. It isn't a true physiological event. Many times women do tear their hymen during their first sexual encounter. Yours may have, or could have during another activity. The pain you experience when someone goes "too deep" is likely related to trauma to your cervix and as long as it goes away in a day or two can be normal. ...Read more
