Hi there, I’ve got a question for the doctors here (or maybe someone else knows the answer too).
I’d like to know exactly what happens to your hymen when you have sex (or when you insert tampons or vibrators or whatever). I’ve heard some people saying that no matter how big the object is, the hymen tears and done, it’s gone. Others told me it can tear in stages, which means that whenever a larger object is inserted (or when you have a new partner with a bigger penis for instance), it can tear again. And again, and again, until you insert something that is as large as your vaginal opening itself. Others say it doesn’t tear but stretch. Some say it bleeds, others say that’s BS. I’m totally lost and I don’t get it. How does this really work?
