you WILL know if you broke your hymen actually.

it hurts.



and if you were to break it with a tampon, you would feel it breaking

this might be to much information (but im just trying to be helpful)

my boyfriend told me that when we lost our virginities, he could feel it breaking..

so you would know if you broke it with a tampon.. but chances are it WONT break. i was using tampons for at least 3 years before i lost my virginity. and it DEFFINETLY was in tact

A female reader, anonymous, writes (4 July 2009):

No tampons CANNOT break your hymen. Your hymen is very thin, but it's not a giant barrier. There is a hole in the center of the hymen that things can pass through. Most girls by the time they have sex have already broken their hymens without knowing it through active things like horseback riding or gymnastics or something. Many people won't bleed much from that so they won't know. Also, it doesn't hurt (shockingly) to break it so they won't feel it. Only a doctor can tell you if it's already torn. Many girls who are afraid of it hurting when they lose their virginity think the hymen tearing is what causes pain. The thought of something inside being ripped is scary! It's actually the stretching that hurts, not the hymen. So don't worry about using tampons, they will not rip your hymen or make you less of a virgin. Also, DO NOT TRY TO RIP IT YOURSELF. Good luck with tampons... They make life SO much easier.
