I find that I can fit one finger into my vagina quite easily. I can fit two fingers in at the opening but if I try to go in further the skin or "ring" around my vagina hurts. I was wondering if this was supposed to be part of my hymen (the ring) or its just how the opening of the vagina is supposed to be. I dont have a hymen covering my vagina obviously and I don't think I ever have. But I feel that if I went in further or something bigger would make this "ring" of skin tear. If it helps, it does stretch a bit, but anymore and I dont think it'll make it. Thanks for reading!

Have you talked with your health care provider about this yet? If not, then that's where I'd start. We're not physicians and we can't examine you, which is why this is a rather difficult question to answer. What you're noticing may be a somewhat stubborn left-over portion of a hymen, or it could be something else going on with that tissue.
The best thing to do is discuss it with your health care provider. And this is something that I'd suggest broaching with him or her before you become sexually active or try penetration with anything much larger. There's no sense in having discomfort if you don't have to or worrying about what's going on down there.
I have this exact same problem as well. I dont think I have ever had a hymen either so I am guessing that this is part of it. It barely covers the opening but if I try what you do as well thats what it also feels like. It might just always stretch when you have sex or it might eventually break, but I am also guessing that yes it is the hymen as that's what I believe mine is.
