According to Teen Vogue the concept of female “virginity” has a complicated history, having often been (incorrectly) linked to whether or not a woman’s hymen was intact. Bleeding after intercourse was thought to be proof of an unbroken hymen, and thus, proof that a woman had not had sex before. The reality, however, is that the state of your hymen has nothing to do with your sexual activity. As for how to know if your hymen is broken, it’s near impossible to see it for yourself. But let’s back up and talk about what the hymen actually is.
The hymen is a small, ragged membrane just inside the opening to the vagina. All hymens are not created equally. So many things other than intercourse can wear the hymen away, including horseback riding, biking, gymnastics, using tampons, fingering, and masturbation. Some women are even born without hymens.
“Think of the hymen like tissue paper,” says Alexandra Eisler, a health and sex educator from Healthy Teen Network . “It can stretch or tear or easily rub away.”
While some women experience a few drops of blood the first time they have vaginal sex, it’s pretty rare, because of all the reasons mentioned above. It doesn’t really take that much to fully open the hymen. According to Eisler, it doesn’t even have a huge blood supply, so even if the hymen is intact, you may not bleed much or at all. “People make a big deal about whether you bleed the first time you have sex. But the idea of ‘popping your cherry’ is not the momentous event that a lot of people think it is,” Eisler says.
