it depends on where ur hymen (virginity) is - e.g some females hymen (virginity) may be low and this can cause the hymen to break away. sometimes in females the hymen may be a few inches into the vagina. it just all depends but yes it is very possible for a tampon to break a hymen which is the actual name for the cherry lol. if you dont get what i mean look it up! - so many girls and women dont know there own bits and bobs lol pretty shocking :o

It varies from person to person. It just cannot be concluded and generalized to everybody.

But this can just tear the hymen and not resulting in loosing of virginity.

To lose your virginity your hymen has to be torn. A tampon can cause you to tear your hymen but it not likely. Don't wear tampons unless you have already had sex. Breaking your hymen isn't a pleasurable thing It can hurt and I definatly would not have liked to have my hymen torn by a tampon

Virginity is lost during sexual intercourse [when the penis is inserted into the vagina]. Unless "tampon" is slang for "penis," you didn't lose your virginity.

Erik is correct. Even if you use a tampon, your still a virgin. To lose your virginity you have to have sex...
