In many societies virginity of women plays a vital role when this society judges a woman’s purity. And hymen is that tiny little membrane that supposedly covers our lady part till we are a virgin, at least that is what was believed till now. So do you get my point? But not having a hymen does not equal non-virgin.
Most of the women have grown up believing that whole urban legend about the hymen breaking during s3x. As a result to this myth, they expected some major pain during their first time. But this not the actual reality and there is a lot more to it.
So Here Are The Top 10 Myths And Things Women Don’t Know About Their Hymen
1.The hymenal tissue is usually worn away by adolescence.
During early years, the hymen is usually thin so doing activities like cycling, swimming, exercising, walking may cause it to break.
2.Pain during the first time that some women experience does not always mean that they membrane is breaking
Many girls believe that their first time hurts because that is what they’ve been told. It makes sense when you think about it. When we think something will hurt, we feel anxious and tense which ultimately gives way to pain.
3.All women are not born with it
This is a myth that every woman is born with it. Most of them are born without it and it’s completely normal.
4.They are of different sizes
Just like vaginas, your membrane also comes in different sizes and shapes. Some hymens some cover the entire vagina, cover half the vagina, and some are non-existent.
5.It can stretch back to its original position after a while.
It stretches, and with inactivity, it goes back to its original size and shape.
6.It’s difficult to find it
It can be really tricky to find the little thin membrane out there.
7.Even after tearing it may stay
It’s not necessary that after your first time it may go away. It stretches and still stays inside your vaginal area for a long time or maybe lifetime.
8.It also has elasticity just like your vagina
When you have intercourse for the first time, the hymen stretches along with the vagina. It means that it instead of tearing it just stretches to accommodate the penis.
9.It’s not the gatekeeper of your private part
I know ladies, this is probably what you have been hearing all your life but it isn’t true. This myth was created to keep you from having s3x.
10.The blood from having the first-time s3x comes from not relaxing your vaginal muscles and going too rough.
