Does It Hurt When Your Hymen Breaks?
The question whether or not it hurts when your hymen breaks is one of the most common questions asked by young women. Some girls are so afraid that they don’t even want to go out with their friends anymore! Others think that having sexual relations will cause them pain. Still others say that they have no idea why it hurts, but then again they just haven’t experienced it yet.
In this article we’re going to answer all these questions. If you’ve ever wondered if it hurts when your hymen breaks, here’s what you need to know:
1) No, You Don’t Need To Be Afraid Of Having Sexual Relations With Other Girls Because That Will Not Cause Pain For You
It is true that some girls may feel uncomfortable during sexual activities because they fear tearing their hymens. However, this is not necessarily due to the fact that they are afraid of getting pregnant.
There are many other reasons why they might feel discomfort such as:
They may not have had any experience with vaginal penetration before. They may be too nervous to begin with.
Their bodies may be used to being penetrated from birth and therefore they aren’t used to it during sexual activity.
However, if you start with small penises, sexual activities are unlikely to bring you pain. Be sure that your partner is gentle with you and you shall be fine!
2) No, You Don’t Need To Be Afraid Of Having Sexual Relations With A Boy Because That Will Not Cause Pain For You Either
Guys are under the impression that having sexual relations for the first time will hurt a girl. However, they should know by now that this isn’t necessarily the case!
If you’re afraid of losing your virginity with a guy, it’s probably because you don’t want to have sexual activities with him.
If you’ve ever wondered if losing your virginity is going to hurt or not, the short answer is no. If it hurts, it’s probably because your partner is being too aggressive with their size.
Guys are usually well-endowed and don’t really have anything to worry about in terms of pain during the first time.
3) Yes, It Is Possible To Break Your Hymen While Doing Regular Daily Activities – Especially If You’re Not Used To Having A Lot Of Penetration
Losing your virginity involves penetrating the walls of your vaginal area. It is possible to tear your hymen while even just walking or sitting!
However, this is not likely. Riding a horse, a bike, and various other activities are unlikely to cause any tears.
However, if you’re not used to having a lot of penetration then your hymen might tear.
Basically, you need to choose your activity carefully if you want to keep your hymen intact. Honestly though, losing your virginity is rarely a goal in and of itself.
There are plenty of other reasons why you might want or not want to have sexual activities with another person. Just make sure that it’s something that you really want to do.
4) Yes, It Is Possible To Crack Your Hymen By Doing Various Other Things – Such As Extreme Exercise
It’s not just about whether or not your hymen will tear; you could actually break it as well during activities. This can happen if you do extreme exercises such as biking or horseback riding.
Basically, anything that involves a lot of abrupt pressure on your groin area could possibly cause this to happen. Please remember this can happen at any time even if you’ve never had sexual thoughts before in your life.
Please remember that you don’t have to be penetrated in order to break your hymen. There are other actions that can cause your hymen to break.
Just remember that you should always be gentle with your body.
5) Yes, It Is Possible To Not Have A Hymen At All – This Is Not An Indication Of Your Sexual History
It’s possible for some girls to be born without a hymen. This is not an indication of your sexual history.
There are also girls who have a very thin hymen.
For these girls, it can be slightly more difficult to tell if they’ve already had sexual activities with another person. It’s just important that you remember that if you plan on having penetrative sexual activities with another person then you might experience pain as a result.
Of course, this is all assuming that you’re a typical girl. If you have some kind of special condition or you’ve undergone any type of surgery then all bets are off.
Always remember that you should be careful with your body while having any type of sexual activity – even if it’s just foreplay. The last thing that you want to experience is extreme pain when you’re trying to enjoy yourself.
6) Yes, It Is Possible For Your Hymen To Regrow After It’s Already Been Broken
This may be a little alarming for some of you reading this. However, it is possible for your hymen to regenerate after it’s already been broken.
Of course, this doesn’t happen in every situation.
Most of the time, a woman’s hymen doesn’t regenerate after it has been broken. A common misconception about women who have their hymen broken is that their bodies are going to automatically regenerate a new one.
However, this doesn’t happen. Of course, if you’re concerned about this then there are always other ways to check to see if you’re still a virgin or not.
7) Yes, You Can Use A Tampon And Still Be A Virgin
One of the biggest questions that girls usually have is whether or not you can use a tampon and still be a virgin. Of course, the answer is yes.
If you’re a virgin and have never had any type of penetration inside your vaginal opening then you can totally use a tampon.
Using a tampon is just like using a q-tip or any other object that is cylindrical in shape. Just make sure that you use the right size and if you do experience any type of pain while using it then take it out immediately.
Also, remember to wrap it before you put it inside of yourself. If you have any type of cuts or abrasions in or around your vaginal opening then that could be a cause for concern.
Just make sure that it’s clean before you put it in and then when you’re finished take it out and be sure to dispose of it. If you’re concerned about getting pregnant then make sure that you wrap it before you insert it and always carry a pack of pads with you just in case it slips out.
Also, if you think you’re going to have a heavier flow than normal then make sure that you have some extra tampons on hand as well. You don’t want to be caught off guard if you’re out and about and need another one immediately.
The last thing that you want to experience is a heavy flow with no tampon and having to walk around in an unsanitary restroom looking for the always scarce and always messy vending machine.
Also remember to wash your hands after you’ve put in and taken out the tampon. You wouldn’t want to risk getting a nasty infection from not being sanitary after using it.
There are a lot of myths and questions that surround the topic of virginity. These are just some of those myths and questions with answers to them.
Remember, there is no right or wrong way to have or not have any kind of sexual activity as long as you’re doing what’s right for you.
If you want to have sexual activity of any kind then go right ahead and do it. However, if you’re unsure about doing it then don’t feel pressured into doing so just because your friends are or you think that’s what you’re supposed to do.
There is never a good reason to have sexual activity that’s forced upon you against your will.
Always respect yourself first and foremost and know that you deserve only the best.
