are under the impression that the hymen is located within the vagina.
It is not. Its part of the vulva, the external genital organs.
Its located outside the vagina. The hymen is a layer of tissue,
just like the tissue around the opening of your vagina that partially
conceals the vaginal orifice. You may or may not have one, most
females do. The hymen is named after the Greek God Hymenaeus --
the God of marriage and weddings, FYI.
During the early
stages of fetal development there is no opening into the vagina
at all. The thin layer of tissue that conceals the vagina at this
time usually divides incompletely prior to birth, forming the hymen.
The size and shape of this opening (or openings) varies greatly
from person to person. Sometimes this formation of an opening does
not occur, resulting in an imperforated hymen (it lacks the more
common opening). Some females have no hymen at birth at all, since
the tissue divided completely while they were still in the womb.
and teens tear or otherwise dilate their hymen while participating
in sports like bicycling, horseback riding, gymnastics or inserting
tampons, or while masturbating. A girl may not even know this has
occurred, since there may be little or no blood or pain involved
when this happens. The tissues of the vulva are generally very thin
and delicate prior to puberty. The presence or absence of a hymen
in no way indicates whether or not a female is a virgin. You are
a virgin until you have sexual intercourse. That is the definition
of a virgin.
are elastic enough to permit a penis to enter without tearing, or
they tear only partially, and there is NO bleeding at all. When
adequately lubricated the vagina is fairly 'flexible' and will stretch
without discomfort for most women. Sometimes, a woman has sex for
years with no real 'tearing' at all, only stretching of the hymen
and then at another time the same woman might tear from 'rough sex'
or sex with a different partner with a larger penis. Remnants of
the hymen are usually still present until a woman delivers a baby
Sure, see what your vagina looks like with a mirror, it's your body,
you should not be afraid of it . Some young women seem to obsess
over what is 'normal'. So, put away the mirror after you know what
is normal for you. You might see that your labia change as you get
older, they might get a bit darker in color or longer, or not change
at all. This is not abnormal, unless you are an adult. It is important
to know what your body looks like, so you can tell when there is
a change or something to see your health care provider about, but
dont obsess over what it is 'supposed to' look like. All of
our faces look different and none of our vaginas look exactly the
all I have to say about hymens and vaginas for now. In the future there will be some diagrams of different
hymens on this site.
