The distance of the hymen from the vaginal opening will change with age. For example, the hymen of the baby girl is deep in the vagina and can protect the reproductive organs. However, with the increase of age, the hymen will become thinner and more and more outward, and finally to the position of the vaginal opening, the position of the hymen of mature women will generally be 0-3CM in the vaginal opening.

You need to know about the hymen
There is now a seemingly useful way of identifying online: “If the second finger can be inserted in the middle finger, can it prove that it is not a virgin?”
This is a problem that lacks physiological common sense.
The first thing you need to know is that the hymen is not a dense membrane. The hymen is elastic, generally ring-shaped, with a 1 to 1.5 cm opening in the middle. In most cases, blood clots and fingertips in menstruation. Or the size of the tampon can pass smoothly.
Referring to the first picture of this article, we can see that the so-called “virgin membrane” is actually an annular elastic band structure around the vaginal opening, with mucous membrane covering on the surface and connective tissue in the deep layer. There are many kinds of holes in the hole: single hole, double hole, even sieve-like hole, only the very rare people have no holes. This congenital defect needs surgery to open the gap to make the menstrual blood flow out, so as long as a woman With the experience of “Appear menstrual”, it can be judged that her hymen is not a non-porous form.
Secondly, the hymen’s name is also a very confusing and biased statement, called “vaginal ring mucosal fold” or simply “vaginal mucosal fold” will be closer to the actual form.
So the hymen itself is actually a “gap” in the body tissue, it is difficult to use your fingers to determine whether a girl has a hymen, and this is not respect for women’s behavior.
If you really want to make sure that the hymen is still there, it’s best to go to a medical institution for a checkup.
In addition, as mentioned earlier, the hymen will become thinner and thinner with age. Hurdles, bicycling and other sports have the chance to cause hymen damage, which is a very normal thing.
The reason why people in ancient China used the first bloodshed to judge whether or not It was a virgin, because the girls at that time were married at the age of 13-16, but today some girls will have sex in their twenties.
In modern times, if a woman has sex after the age of 20, it is normal to have sex for the first time without hymen damage.
Unfortunately, most people’s thinking is still not scientific enough. The hymen is still used to measure a girl’s virginity. This is very wrong.
Hymen and tampons
And let’s talk about tampons that have been hot lately and are associated with hymen.
On Quora, Twitter and Facebook, countless people have asked me if virgins can use tampons, and every time they get the answer:
Of course, as long as the product is qualified and the method is correct, any healthy woman in the menstrual period can use tampons.
But I knew from the beginning that the deeper meaning behind the question was “will tampons hurt the hymen?”
From the above article, we know that the hymen is an elastic annular structure with a gap of 1 / 1. 5 cm in the middle, which in most cases can accommodate the smooth passage of tampons.
But no one can guarantee you that the tampon will not damage the hymen 100%, after all, the hymen will get thinner and thinner, if the tampon and break the hymen is not too inconceivable things.
But you and I both know that it’s never the film that prevents women from using tampons. It’s the poisonous concept of chastity behind it.
In the past, the concept of women as “commodities” took “having sex” as the big criterion for evaluating women, as if once a woman had sex, it became a kind of “off-price” existence. To this day, many people still consciously ignore the true definition of sexual behavior, stubbornly believing that the physical structure of a layer that is not even a membrane is a symbol of chastity.
Sexual behavior, also known as sexual intercourse, is characterized by the need for reproductive organ involvement (Sex / Sexual intercourse / Coition)
Women do not “lose” their virginity by using tampons, masturbation, or other insertions.
The hymen also does not prove anything, sacrifice their comfort to “keep virginity for the male” is not worth it, there is no such concept of partners do not want it.
Wouldn’t it be a shame that every girl should have absolute autonomy over her body, not to mention the right to freely choose physical objects, if this ideological membrane hinders your right to a better life?
In the end, “is it a virgin” really doesn’t matter, those who only pay attention to your hymen are not important.
