Question: I've been having sex for awhile, and I think my hymen was just stretching until recently, when it finally broke. Now I have noticed a tubular piece of skin hanging down and I'm pretty sure it's the broken hymen. It makes me feel uncomfortable and I want it gone. Will this go away on its own? If not, what are my options? In lots of boards online, the answers suggest that it's just enlarged labia that happen when you're aroused, but I know this isn't the case, as I'm familiar with my vagina and have had sex many times and this is completely new.

Brief Answer:
minor surgical procedure needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I understand your concerns.

You have experienced a piece of skin hanging out from hymen.

Problem with hanging hymen is the dryness of the skin which is caused by the exposure to air. This might also lead to itching or irritation of the skin due to increased dryness.

The condition is not treated by medicines or other alternative therapies. If the skin resists getting back inside in some time then only a small surgical procedure could make it go.

I would suggest you to consult your Gynecologist.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!

I got married last year. My wife & I are having sex regularly. During a recent gynac visit the Doctor said that still the hymen is intact in her. I need to enter more deep & break it as soon as possible. Is that right? But all these days we had enjoyed our sexual act (both of us). I have good erection all times. Is is really required to break it?
