hey guys! when i was taking out a tampon once, it got caught on my hymen, i didn't notice so i kept pulling and pulling, it KILLED!!! i finally realised and fixed it up. i didn't tear my hymen but it hurt so much!! i don't want to feel that sort of pain when i loose my virginity! it's meant to be special. i know there are ways to tear your hymen such as vigorous sports like horse riding etc. but is there a way to tear it on purpose to avoid the pain during my first time? how did you deal with the pain? PLEASE HELP!!!

If you are using a tampon at ALL, you have stretched your hymen already.
When the hymen gets stretched (if it was there at all) it doesn't completely vanish or fall off. It ends up becoming little folds of tissue, almost like mini-labiaa, just inside your vaginal opening. My guess is that in your case, you simply pulled a tampon when it was nestled under the lip of your vaginal opening.
All that aside, things can be special and still not be entirely pleasant.
It may not have even been your hymen that the tampon was caught on. It could have been that you were using a tampon that was too high in absorbancy, and it just soaked up the natural moistness inside your vagina, causing it to adhere to the vagina walls. I've had this happen to me before, and it definately wasn't pleasant. As for having sex for the fist time; yeah, it's gonna hurt and you may bleed, but if it's with someone you truly care about, it will be truly special and you won't mind the pain as much. I hope I helped Peace.

To tell you the truth... I had heard horror stories about how bad it hurt the first time and it really doesn't hurt as bad as you probably imagine. It hurt for a split second and bled and tiny bit but then it was fine. No need to worry.
