Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I think you want to ask about hymen.
Hymen will be situated inside the vaginal opening which will be covered by labia minora.
Hymen can be torn during sports, exercises, cycling etc.
Some virgin girls may not have intact hymen.
So intact hymen should not be considered as the sign of virginity.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

No, Not the hymen. I am asking about LABIA MINORA not hymen. If the labia minora is teared and hanging out. Is this mean she had intercourse before or It can be teared during any kind of sports ?

Hi,
Labia minora usually won't tear during sports or intercourse.
Rarely it can be teared during some injury.
Labia minora will have folds you may be mistaken that to be a tear.
If you once read about the external genital structures you may get some idea.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
