I need some help here...
I'm a 13 year old girl who is a virgin, not yet considering sexual intercourse, but I am worried that, as I have a very thick fully-intact hymen, when I am ready for (sorry to be graphic) something to go in my vagina, it will not literally be able to get in! Any advice?
(And I do realise that my hymen could break from other causes)
Thanks from Jo

If your hymen does not erode on its own due to natural activity, your doctor can perform a simple medical procedure to remove it. If you're concerned about it, the best person to talk to is your doctor.
