Hello, my question isn't anything serious or bothersome but it does have me a little curious. I have been having sex with my boyfriend for about five months. Things have gone pretty normamlly,there was some pain during entry at first but that has passed and my hymen never tore. I figured that it must had torn by some other means like tampon use, and I never really thought about it. Well a week back my boyfriend and I were togther, he was more aroused (or biggier) than usual, and while we were having sex I felt a very sharp pain, so bad that we stopped. When I looked down I saw that I was bleeding, so i guess I had one after all.
I asked my sister about it and she said that she had been having sex for two years before her hymen tore. This is so odd...every girl I've known has always said hers tore during the first time, or she just never had one. I've never heard of it tearing months or years later. Does it just take a while for some women, or does it have to do with the way our anatomy is made up?

Well thats all, thank you.

Your hymen doesn't so much tear, per se, as it does stretch.

Take at look at our article, Pink Parts: Female Sexual Anatomy. It will help you see what's going on down there.

As to the sharp pain and blood--were you fully aroused and using extra lube? Sometimes, when things get a bit dry, the skin can become irritated and small tears can occur in the vaginal walls.
