I feel so dumb for asking this. What is a hymen? Is it when like something pops and bleeds when you have sex for the first time? Sorry to make it all akward...

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Not awkward.

A hymen is a mucus membrane covering the opening into the vagina. Some women have more, some women have less.

"Popping the cherry" means breaking the hymen and usually penetration.

Hope that helped!

Okay, thank you!!

I am kinda hoping mine already broke. This one girl in my English was talking about it (at the time I had no idea what she was talking about), and she said it was painful.

It can happen but You are more likely to do so during gymnastics or whilst putting a tampon in.

I've ridden since I was 3 years old (22 years), I've tried most of the English riding sports, I've had some horrific high impact falls (including one that crushed 2 discs in my spine) but Riding did not break my hymen.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

How do you know its popped? I've been riding for just over 9 years, have had my period for around 3 years. I've had some pretty hard hits during a horses bucking but never bled unless it was my period. How do you know its broken?

I just wonder because I would love to use tampons but last time I tried it hurt to put it in so I stopped. My mom said when you break the hymen you should be able to use tampons for sure.

unless you have sex or have a doctor to have a look for you then no real way of telling. You could have a feel yourself but it is unlikely they you would know what to feel for.

Just wanted to add that even if you have broken your hymen, it is possible to still have pain while trying to wear a tampon -- Especially if you have anxiety about one.

When I first tried to put one in, I wasn't doing it correctly. I would recommend one of the playtex slimfit plastic tampons for a light or regular flow. As gross as it sounds its also easier to put them in when you are on your period rather than practicing when you're not.

Wow I was wondering this same thing cause my gym teacher told us that. He also told us that if you can do the splits all the way then your hymen is probably broken. Anyone know if thats true?

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Nope, that's not necessarily true.
The only way to be sure is to check with your doctor.

Thnx Spastic Dove. As dumb as it sounds I do actually have quite a bit of anxiety about putting in a tampon. I'm 16 and its stupid but I'm not good with pain and it just freaks me out! But I don't feel sexy in pads{duh who does} and I always think people can tell I'm wearing them.
