The Hymen

Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
how can you tell if the tissue in your virgina has been broken...can it be broken by the use of tampons or other stuff such as masturbation??? Advice
That tissue is your hymen and yes it gets broken by TONS of things naturally. You can break it riding a horse, riding a bike, using a tampon, you name it. It is super strong in some girls, rather weak in other girls. So what might break it for one girl wouldn't necessarily break it for another.

A doctor could tell you if it was broken or not, but really it doesn't matter at all in any real sense. Even some girls who have it don't notice at all when it breaks during their first sexual encounter, because it is so thin. So it's not like it "proves anything" to have it or not have it.
