Whether you have a hymen (now called the corona) or not is not connected to virginity. While virginity is just a concept, not a physical state of being, and that concept can be different in different cultures, the most standard definition refers to whether someone has had sex or not. So you are still a virgin by that definition.
As well, the corona usually wears away on it's own, so even if you still had remnants of it now, you likely wouldn't by the time you were ready to have sex.
Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, "We've always done it this way." I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise. - Grace Hopper Posts: 876 | From: Seattle | Registered: Apr 2009

The hymen (which we now call the corona), doesn't actually break the way it is generally imagined. Rather, it wears away over time from hormonal changes, menstruation and general activity. For most women, the corona is partially or fully worn away by the time they first have intercourse.
For this reason, it's really hard to say whether you are still a virgin, because the word doesn't hold universal meaning. It means something different for everyone.
