my bf fingered me fer the first time using a lot of lube and a glove. he almost popped my cherry but didnt. my question is, what will happen to my hymen over this period of time? I mean if I go to eh gynecologist will they know that from looking? and when my hymen meets speculum, will it pop my cherry?Should I finger myself so it dosnt get tight again and stays loose? this came across my mind as i read something on another board, adn I know your reliable info so.... answer? lol:-)

There is no cherry, just a bit of skin that's got about as much significance as toenail clippings. If the skin, the hymen, erodes, that's perfectly normal, and can happen through non-sexual activities very easily as well, so no gynecologist would think too much of it. And a vagina can't be loose, nor tight, because it's a very elastic organ -- it can change its dimensions through arousal, but just like how erection don't last forever, neither does this.

First of all, we're not big fans of the terms referring to genitals and fruit salads. In other words, there are no cherries down there. No cherries, watermelons, pineapples...no fruit.
Secondly, hymen's don't pop. They stretch or erode, or may possibly tear a bit. Hymen's do not grow back or become tight again after any period of time. A gynocologist cannot tell whether or not you're sexually active by the absence of a hymen. Most women don't have much of a hymen left (if any at all) by the time they see a gyn for the first time. Generally, regular everyday activites erode the hymen away (if you ever had one at all, as some women are born without them).
