Brief Answer:
Fingering can break a female's hymen.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

There is need for full penis insertion or penetration to break a female's hymen, putting just the tip gently doesn't break it.

Forced fingering can break the female's hymen.

Bear in mind that nearly always, when there is defloration or firstly broken hymen, is associated with an amount of bleeding from hymen.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions or clarifications, feel free to ask, if not, you can close the conversation and rate the answer.

Thank you doc...just wanted to clarify something.

A sexual partner of mine told me that I broke her hymen - does inserting more than one ginger gently break the hymen?

What about if I forces the tip.

How shallow is the hymen - if i a fully erect tip is inserted would it break the hymen?

Brief Answer:
Hymen is 0.5 to 2 cm shallow.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.

The hymen is approximately 1 cm shallow.

More than one finger, can break the hymen, but it depends on hymen type.

Bleeding is always a secure sign of hymen break.

I don't think just the tip can break the hymen.

Hope I helped you. Best regards.

Doc, my girl friend is insisting that I broke her hymen. She did not bleed at the time but apparently she started bleeding almost an hour or more later.
Is there a differbroken and a torn hymen? n

Brief Answer:
Both are possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again XXXX.

Both possibilities are probable, but if there was blood, even after one hour, it is more likely that the hymen was broken.

Hope I helped you. Best regards.

Would it be possible that she is bleeding for another reason other than her virginity...lets say i have doubts about her being a virgin as we've been doing the same activity with the same intensity (or more) for over 6 months now and she only brought it up now.

Brief Answer:
Virginity or defloration can be checked by examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again XXXX.

I see you have trust issues with your girlfriend.

Virginity or the time when it was loosen, can be evaluated by a physical examination by a Gynecologyst.

Bleeding from other causes other than virginity loss, could be the starting of periods eg.

So, in the end, if you don't trust her, is not a matter of virginity lost or not, is a trusting issue that needs to be resolved by you two.

A woman CAN find explanations every time.

Hope I helped you.
Best regards.
