Please, upload the photos!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am sorry the photos didn't get uploaded as intended. Please check this out and make sure you get it correct. Should you have difficulties doing this, talk to the customer service.

I am not sure pictures would be able to tell whether the hymen is intact or not. We often have to pull aside the labia of the vaginal in order to be able to view this and I am pretty worried if you can do this and get a good picture for interpretation. I will wait for the picture and see whether it is informative enough to make a call about this.

I hope to hear from you. I wish you well and would get back to you as soon as I get the photos uploaded. Thanks for using our services.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for uploading the pictures.

I have taken a look at them and your hymen seems to be intact. An intact hymen is prove that you have never had vaginal penetration(sex, speculum exams, etc) but an absent hymen doesn't show that you have had vaginal penetration as there are many other possible causes like sports, biking, etc.

I hope this addresses your query fully. I wish you well.

Brief Answer:
The sie is normal for a virgin!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The size is normal for a virgin. It only gets bigger with vaginal manipulation through sex, exams, vaginal childbirth, etc.

How much pain you would experience during your first intercourse depends on the size of your partners penis and how gentle he is in the act. In general, it would hurt but the pains are never deadly and it rarely interrupts intercourse.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Remember to always use protection during sex!

Recent questions on  Hymen

doctor1 MD

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?

Dear Doctor, I would sincerley like to know what it is I'am currently experiencing. I had gotten close with my boyfriend recently and he inserted his penis into my vagina and made slow movements. He did not fully penetrate, however i noticed blood on the sheet. We did not do anything thereafter as I was suprised. I have read about the Hymen and its location and want to find out if there is a possiblilty I may have broken my hymen with such slow movement to the vagina I'am really concerned. If it means I have does that mean I will never bleed again during intercourse as I hope to.i have irregular periods.while going for treatement whether doctors can find out the hymen broken.?
