Can inserting a tongue into vagina break the hymen?

In brief: Normally, no.

Not if done properly, but it doesn't matter. A normal woman can ignore the hymen.
Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken.
