I started to use a tampon for my period because  I wanted to swim…..

……… my mother was upset and told me if I used them I was no longer a Virgin. I decided I wanted to know if my hymen was torn or broken. Is there any possible way to get checked?

Whats important to know is that “virginity” isn’t a medical term, and people can make that definition for themselves.  Some people define “virginity loss” as having penile-vaginal intercourse for the first time; others include oral or anal sex in this definition, too. At the end of the day, you’re the only one who can define when you are or aren’t a virgin, and how you feel about it.

Some people with vaginas have a thin membrane, called a hymen that partially blocks the entrance to their vaginas. Hymens can be broken by fingers, tampons, penises, or other things inserted into the vagina. Not all people are born with a hymen, however, and some are stretched or broken in childhood by everyday activities like sports, riding a bike, etc.

There is no test to determine “virginity” since it isn’t a medical concept, and because even if someone’s hymen is non existent or stretched, this doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with sexual activity.
