Why Do People Believe The State Of The Hymen Determines Virginity
Historic,social and: Historic reasons. It is generally believed that a female with an intact hymen is still a virgin. This is vitally important in many cultures. There is a mistaken belief that a moman with an intact hymen is pure & has never engaged in any sex. Which ignores the fact that she may have engaged in anal or oral sex or mutual masturbation. Also a torn or ruptured hymen can be "repaired" so again a virgin. ...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
A little bit, maybe: The hymen isn't like the paper seal on a jar of instant coffee; it's an elastic membrane that has some capacity to bend. Different women report different experiences with first intercourse. But your first time should be wonderful, something you've waited for and planned for. The right man will put you at ease even if it is also his first time. When (if) it happens, may you remember the joy always. ...Read more

When i lost my virginity, i didn't experience any pain or any blood from the hymen breaking. What could of happened?
Tissue at entrance: During fetal development, the vagina forms from tissue that moves down from inside the abdomen to connect with the outside at the external genitalia. As the two tissues meet, there is a last bit of tissue that separates the two which will be the hymen.When finished forming, this structure usually has a hole in the center much smaller than the size of the vagina. The hymen is torn with sex. ...Read more
Uh, no . . .: While it's possible for "ripped" tissue to stick out of your vagina, that would suggest tremendous trauma/injury. Best to seek medical evaluation to determine what's going on. Go see your FamilyDoc, GYN or Planned Parenthood. Local city/county health clinics can also provide assistance, too. Better to find out what's going on than to guess & wonder. Plus you'll probably need testing for STDs/STIs. ...Read more
Is it normal that the hymen has ahole that the finger slot entry through easily? Can 1 finger effects on the virginity when it enter in it?
Yes. No.: Teen girls and women can wear tampons without any problem, which is especially helpful during sports activities. Girls can do everything boys can do, which means having a period should not stop girls or women from doing activities. The number of fingers has nothing to do with virginity. The shape or size of the hymen's opening is not important and has great variation among girls and women. ...Read more
I jus lost my virginity and I kept bleeding, it's been bleeding for 3hrs, is this normal? Also is it possible for the hymen slowly coming out.
I just found out females have a hymen? Does it break? Is it painful? When having sex? Losing virginity? While exercising? I don't understand..
Many questions: The vagina starts (ends) in a thin wall of tissue that usually has a central opening 1/4-1/2 inch in diameter to allow menstrual flow. Like most tissues,it has nerve endings, and tearing it with sex or a sex toy will produce transient discomfort and bleeding. In some,the hymen never forms or is lost in non sexual events in childhood. Exercise doesn't effect it. Penetration does. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
