In brief: Losing virginity.

The hymen is a ring of tissue at the entrance to the vagina.
Some girls who are very physically active even before puberty can disrupt the hymen; most commonly a female will have slight injury to this tissue during intercourse or intimate touching. This hymenal injury and subsequent bleeding has often been called "popping the cherry."
