Question
hi
I want to know if my hymen is still intact, am XXXXXX by name and am 21.. I have never had any sexual intercourse, and I have never masturbated before. I tried locating my hymen using a mirror, but am very confused as to where it is. I took a picture of it, if you don't mind I could send you the pictures, so you help me take a look at it and tell me if my hymen is still intact

Hello,
Thanks for the query and photograph.
Yes your hymen is intact,
Generally intact hymen can allow one finger to get in,
Intact does not mean it should be complete closed.

So do not worry you are fine.

You can ask us any kind of doubt without shying.
we are here to help you.

Thank you

Thanks for follow up.
There are many variants of hymen, like single hole multiple holes, arcuate etc.

So you dont worry, you are totally fine.

And well why you want to locate, its intact, so you should be happy :)

Thank you
