This is normal: There are MANY things that can cause a girls hymen to tear other than intercourse. Most girls do not have intact hymens because physical activity alone can tear it. So a girl who is very active in sports or just playing can tear her hymen without ever knowing it. Using tampons also typically tear the hymen, but the majority of girls have already torn it before they even start menstruating. ...Read more

Does masturbation cause any damage to Hymen layer in female ? how should i prove my partner i am a virgin? is masturbation equals to sex with some one

See answer: Masturbation by stimulation of the clitoris will not damage the hymen. While the presence of an intact hymen is the most reliable indication of virginity, the absence of a hymen does not prove a female is not a virgin for a variety of possible reasons. Masturbation vs sex with a partner are similar (??identical) physiologically but different emotional and physical experiences. ...Read more

Sex is painful! Is it possible that I haven't torn my hymen?

Sex is painful! Is it possible that I haven't torn my hymen?

Unlikely: The normal hymen is a circle of elastic tissue around the vagina opening, like a stretchy bracelet. It's not a solid layer of skin except for rare condition of imperforate hymen where there's no opening and no way for menstrual blood to leave the body. If you've had periods, you haven't got an imperforate hymen. Likely there's another reason why sex is painful. Suggest see your MD for evaluation. ...Read more
