M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats,lunges,& exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?
No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen.

In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more
