In brief: Usually not painful

The hypmen is a relatively thin membrane in the vaginal canal and most females don't even know when it being torn.
.I.E during first relation or tampon use/vaginal exam/pap with speculum etc... Often a simple incisions are aqequate to open the hymen. Some discomfort is common, but if you have excessive pain, consult your doc... Good luck.
