Thank you for your kind words. Again: I’m not a doctor and I can only speak of what I’ve heard and learned from other women, but IMHO there is a general tendency in sex ed to leave out a lot of useful info on the hymen. I’ve already heard people saying that the hymen is a myth, that only a minority of women have a hymen, etc… however: that’s not how I’ve experienced it. Knowing it can hurt the first time you have sex when the hymen is torn, and knowing not all hymens can be easily ruptured, is basic information everyone should be aware about. I totally agree with you that having a thick hymen can become one of the reasons someone might develop vaginismus. Basically it all comes to what I’ve said in my previous post: there’s a lack of education on this subject.
