The hymen pictures, the hymen examination.
|All about hymen and your virginity. What is the hymen?


Hi, my name is Alice. I am a virgin...., but I have never seen my hymen. How can I examine it.

- Hi Alice. It is not difficult to do. Wait until your Mom and Dad are not at home. Remove your panties. Stand with your legs spread shoulder width, and then squat down. Place a hand mirror on the floor between your feet, so you can see your pussy lips. Now slowly and gently rub your lips back and forth. In two or three minutes you will feel pleasure and excitement, and your lips will "pout" and slightly spread on their own. Now use your fingers to spread your lips wide. At the top, you will see your clitoris and at the bottom you will find your virgin membrane.
By the way, in our members section you can see photos, to show you step by step how to do the hymen examination correctly.


Hi, my name is Jenny. I am from Japan. I am a virgin too and I have one question. When I examined my hymen, using the instructions you gave, I noticed that my membrane had two little holes. Is there something wrong with my hymen. Maybe I damaged it. Please look at the photo I sent you and tell me if something is wrong.

- Thank you Jenny for the beautiful photo. We put it in the members section. You will be happy to know that there is nothing wrong with your hymen. You just have a special king of hymen call a Separate Hymen. You can see all kinds of different hymens in our members section.

Hi, I'm Anna. I just had my period for the first time. I would like to use tampons, but I 'm afraid I will break my hymen. Please tell me how to use a tampon while a virgin.

- Anna, we are getting a lot of questions like this. That is why we added special photos in our members section. These photos show you how to correctly insert the tampon through the hymen. We also have a video demonstration of an insertion. Once you see the video and photos you should feel confident about trying it yourself. Your hymen normally has a little hole in it, so your menstrual blood can flow out each month. Your hymen is also very elastic at your age, so you should have no problems inserting the tampon if you do it slowly. Use the photos and video for directions.


My name is John. Sorry about entering your page about girl's secrets, but I need help. Yesterday our parents were out and my sister and I were lying in bed and playing Doctor, and talking about sex. Pretty soon we starting rubbing each other "down there" and we didn't want to stop. I noticed that my hard penis was very slippery and so was my sister's pussy. My sister was squeezing my penis and pulling on it. Then something wonderful happened. I felt a hot surge from my penis and something hot and sticky came out and onto my sister's hand! I'm afraid that at that moment I could not help myself. I forced my finger up into my sister's vagina. She screamed but did not push my hand away. She held my hand close to her pussy with my finger inside. I kept my finger inside her for about 10 minutes while she moaned and moved her hips back and forth. Finally she stopped and I removed my finger. Then we examined her vagina. I am afraid that I damaged her hymen! We made a photo of it with our digital camera and sent you the photo. Please look at the photo and tell us if my sister is still a virgin.

- Wow. Congratulations on your first sexual experience. Very often in our practice a girl will tell us that her first sexual experience was with her brother, and both were virgins. We have examined your photo and you do not have to worry. Because your sister was so wet and excited, her hymen was relaxed and elastic. When you slid your finger into her, the small hole in the hymen stretched out and allowed it through, and did not tear. We believe her scream was not from pain but of joy.
In cases when a girl has her first penis, and there is a lot of foreplay, the hymen is pushed aside and there is little tearing and almost no blood. It is not so painful. If a girl loses her virginity without foreplay, there will be painful tearing and bleeding of the hymen. See photos in our members section.
We put your photo in the members section so other girls can see that they do not have to worry about a boy putting one finger inside. Also in the members section you can compare photos of other hymens which had been stretched (like in your case), or torn by an overeager boy.
By the way, that peak moment of enjoyment was called an orgasm. That hot sticky stuff from your penis is called ejaculate. In it are millions of sperm cells. Girls can become pregnant from just one sperm cell.


Hi. I'm Angela. I have a stupid question. Can you explain how a virgin like me should wash herself thoroughly without hurting her hymen?

- No problem. In our members section we have photos and videos that show you how to wash your virgin vagina without hurting your hymen.


Hi. I do not want to give my name. I have a question. Can I masturbate without hurting my hymen? I have such strong feelings, I want to do it every day. I don't think I am oversexed, but when I touch my vagina and especially my clitoris, I have a tremendous reaction. Within 5 minutes my buttocks squeeze down and some liquid comes out of my vagina and I feel like flying away to heaven. Am I injuring myself?

- Many women envy someone who can enjoy sex as you do. There is nothing wrong with what you are doing. You can play with yourself every day and still be a virgin.
Write us again and tell us more about your sensations. It is most important that you do not force your fingers into your vagina if you want to stay a virgin.. If you do, you could strongly stretch or tear your hymen. The small amount of liquid from your vagina comes from sex glands that secrete fluid during sexual excitement. Sometimes it is called smear. It makes the vagina slippery and makes it easier for the penis to slide into the vagina. In the members section you can see how the vagina secretes this fluid under sexual excitement.


Hi lol
My boyfriend and I decided to give you a present. I decided to lose my virginity and had the photo taken at the moment the hymen disappeared. We finally did it! Look at the photos I have attached. Sorry about the big size of the file. I hope it will help other virgin girls see what it is like to lose it.

- Wow! Thank you. We put your photos in the members section. They are very high quality photos. Perhaps you used a good digital camera. It clearly shows your hymen and how it began to stretch under the pressure of his penis. Thank you again for the quality photos. Let us know your name, city and country and we will send you $300 USD for your photos. We need this information for a Western Union transfer. We will send you a password and you can get the money in 5 minutes. Please let us know if you have a Western Union office in your city. Check your local phone book for Western Union or look for a local currency exchange office. We pay $300 USD to every girl who takes pictures of their hymen and sends it to us for our library.


Hi, my name is Lisa and I live in the United States. My girlfriends say that I am pretty and could get any boy I want. But I want to meet a boy who can appreciate me for myself and my virginity. I would appreciate it if you could place the photo of me and also the photo of my hymen in your members section.

- Hi Lisa. You are a very pretty girl and I am sure you are popular with the boys in your town. Unfortunately we are not a dating service. But thank you for the picture of your hymen. We have placed it in the members section and we are sending you $300 USD for your photo.


Hello. Until I saw your site, I had never seen any site that wrote about virgins with my skin colour. I followed your instructions and made a photo of my hymen. I am sending this to you because you do not discriminate. I never thought that my hymen was attractive to others. It's a pity that most boys think all black girls lose their virginity at age 10! Its not true. It depends on our education. I am proof of that. Please do not send me the $300, I do not want my parents to know about the picture.

- Thank you. We are very glad to have received your letter and photo. We will also be grateful if you can get your girlfriends to send us photos and stories abut their problems and their lives. I am sending you a password to use to enter our directory.


My name is Elena and I am from Russia.
I am a virgin like all the other girls that I have seen on your site. In my school, I was the only one that kept my virginity until finishing school. My sister and I decided to take pictures of each others hymens. My hymen is very elastic and had a little hole for menstruation. I put my little finger in this hole and pulled my hymen out! My sister took a picture of this moment. When I heard that you pay $300 USD for photos like this, I sent it to you. I just need the money. Have you ever seen a picture like this? I agree that all rights will belong to your company as you asked.

- Thank you Elena. It is a really unique photo.
You are the first girl from Russia who wrote to us and gave us your photo for our directory. We have sent you $300 USD plus $100 USD as an extra prize for quality and the unique picture. The money has been sent via Western Union. The password for getting the money is in the message we have emailed to you.




No picture..

- I've lost my virginity, is there any way that I can get my hymen back?

Do you have any solution to the problem?


-Here's The Solution!
The good news is, we have found a formula that will make you a complete virgin for him. You will not get your hymen back, but once you use it, no man in the world could say that you're not a virgin. The formula completely satisfies all four conditions mentioned below, and as a result you will see a more happy and confident man throughout your life!

No matter how experienced the man is, he can judge virginity by four factors:

1. The vagina should be tight (difficult to enter).
2. The girl must feel pain during sex.
3. Thick blood should emerge from her vagina.
4. This blood should be different from normal blood, as it is mixed with woman's wetness and, more often, with fragments of hymen tissue that stick to the penis.

If all these conditions are satisfied, the girl will be considered a virgin.

How is this possible?
DOCTOR-APPROVED Scientific Breakthrough that will transform a Non-Virgin girl into a complete virgin! Experience the pain and bleeding on the first night as if you were a real virgin!
The "hymen" formula now available  free of charge for our members!



How many men have ever actually seen a hymen? How many men or women have ever watched a girl lose
her innocence and see how the hymen is ruptured? Each month we have a new virgin and a new
act of defloration! All models located within our domain were 18 years of age or older
during the time of photography (defloration).


The Hymen Examination

In prepubertal girls, a pelvic examination with a speculum is unnecessary unless there is unexplained, active vaginal bleeding. In most cases, thorough visual inspection of the external genitalia, vaginal vestibule, and hymen structures is sufficient. The vaginal vestibule is the space below the clitoris, above the posterior commissure, and between the labia minora.

The supine frog-leg position is comfortable for most girls. Separate the labia majora by applying gentle traction. Grasp the labia bilaterally between thumb and forefinger and pull gently outward and downward. Because tension of other pelvic muscles can obscure the view of vaginal vestibular structures, allow the girl time to relax while you maintain labial traction.

The knee-chest position is tolerated well by most girls. While preserving the patient's modesty with drapes, instruct her or him to lie prone on the examining table. Then assist the girl to assume a kneeling position while he or she maintains head and chest contact with the table surface and lordosis of the back. Once the girl is positioned properly, lift the labia upward and apart gently. Use this examination position routinely to verify normal or abnormal findings first noted when the patient is supine. This technique allows excellent noninvasive visualization of the posterior hymen, vagina, anus, and frequently the cervix.

The redundancy of the estrogenized postpubertal hymen makes close inspection of hymen tissues for traumatic injury difficult in adolescents.

 Figure 2. Normal prepubertal genitalia visualized while patient is in the supine frog-leg position (labial traction applied). The vaginal vestibule is the space below the clitoris, above the posterior commissure, and between the labia minora. The hymen morphology is annular, ie, circumferential. The fossa navicularis or posterior fossa is the lower part of the vaginal vestibule below the vaginal orifice, extending to the posterior commissure. In nonabused prepubertal  girl, the posterior hymen appears uniform without traumatic defect.


Figure 2 illustrates normal prepubertal vestibular structures and an annular hymen. An annular hymen extends 360 degrees circumferentially. Figure 3 demonstrates a crescentic hymen, which is the most common morphology. A crescentic hymen has attachments at approximately the 10 o'clock to 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock to 2 o'clock positions and no hymen tissue at the 12 o'clock position (relating location in the supine position to the face of a clock). Hymen appearance may vary over time due to the effects of pubertal or exogenous

 Hymen Figure 3. A prepubertal girl in the supine frog-leg position with labial traction applied reveals crescentic hymen morphology. A crescentic hymen has attachments at approximately the 10 o'clock to 11 o'clock and 1 o'clock to 2 o'clock positions. No hymen tissue is present at the 12 o'clock position. The crescentic hymen morphology is the most common variant. The arch-like, symmetric bands lateral to the urethra and connected to the vestibular wall are periurethral bands--a normal finding.

 Hymen Figure 4. This female, who is at sexual maturity rating 1, is in the knee-chest examination position. The hymen appears thin, almost translucent in this colposcopic photograph.

The hymen opening size varies, depending on examination technique, degree of patient relaxation, and the patient's age. There is a wide range of normal hymen opening sizes among prepubertal girls selected for non-abuse. A significantly enlarged hymen opening is diagnostic of penetrating sexual abuse only in the presence of posterior hymen defects confirmed in two separate examination positions.

Routine examination of genital-rectal structures during well girl care visits offers an opportunity to learn the many normal variations. Colposcopy offers an additional learning opportunity. The widespread use of colposcopic photography in the medical evaluation of teen girls sexual abuse has allowed extensive peer review of such photos at educational conferences and in the medical literature. Significant concurrence on "normal" versus "abnormal" findings has resulted. Excellent color atlases of colposcopic photographs are available for review.

Is it Evidence of Virginity?
The hymen, or "maidenhead," is a thin, fleshy membrane that in some girls and young women is found at the opening to the vagina. It has a central perforation, which can be round or elongated, through which menstrual blood will flow.

For a long time, it was believed that an intact hymen was evidence of a girl's virginity, as the hymen posed a barrier to sexual intercourse.

Some girls who are still virgins have no hymen at all.

Girls who do have a hymen can "break (or pop) their cherry" in a number of differerent ways, sometimes without even knowing it. Some of the non-sexual ways in which a hymen will tear are:

1. Through an accident or injury
2. Horseback riding, bicycling, high jumping, or gymnastics
3. Insertion of finger or instrument by doctor during pelvic exam
4. Tampon insertion
5. Overzealous douching

Sex and the Hymen

Sexual methods of "deflowering" a girl (another euphemism for rupturing the hymen) include:

1. Inserting a finger deeply or roughly into the vagina
2. Masturbation with a phallic-shaped vibrator or other such tool
3. Sexual intercourse

While the presence of a hymen indicates virginity, the absence of one is no proof a girl is not a virgin.

Since an intact hymen can be stretched and split by an erect penis during sexual intercourse, a woman may feel momentary discomfort and/or bleed. Should either persist, a consultation with a doctor is in order. On the other hand, there may be no blood or pain involved at all when the hymen is torn.

In many cultures, a girlís virginity until marriage is considered a critical virtue. Consequently certain fanfare may accompany the display of "proof." In some Mediterranean and African countries, the blood-stained sheet is still hung proudly outdoors following the wedding night.

Restoring the Hymen:

In some backward countries, the absence of blood after first intercourse still casts questions on a bride's virginity. To protect themselves from violence and even death, some engaged women in these places arrange for hymenorraphy, which is surgery to repair the hymen. Typical hymen repair surgery involves stitching what remains of a torn hymen together and inserting a gelatin capsule that contains a blood-like substance.

Who was Hymen?

According to sources, the hymen is named after the Greek god Hymenaeus. Son of Bacchus and Venus, Hymenaeus earned his reputation as the god of marriage and weddings.

I am asked about hymens almost as much as about masturbation and penis size. I thought it was time to try to address this subject and hopefully end the confusion. I have written about the hymen in the Sexuality FAQ pages also.

I want this site to provide accurate information for teens and young adults about their bodies. I often do so at the risk of losing potential sponsors - they often donít appreciate honest information, but the hymen shouldn't be such a mystery.

When I was a teen in the 1970s, there were the same myths and misinformation that I am hearing today from readers. Maybe some things donít really change so much.
~ Amy, RN, BSN, Founder/Publisher, Cool Nurse ~

Many people are under the impression that the hymen is located within the vagina. It is not. Itís part of the vulva, the external genital organs. Itís located outside the vagina. The hymen is a layer of tissue, just like the tissue around the opening of your vagina that partially conceals the vaginal orifice. You may or may not have one, most females do. The hymen is named after the Greek God Hymenaeus -- the God of marriage and weddings, FYI.

During the early stages of fetal development there is no opening into the vagina at all. The thin layer of tissue that conceals the vagina at this time usually divides incompletely prior to birth, forming the hymen. The size and shape of this opening (or openings) varies greatly from person to person.

Sometimes this formation of an opening does not occur, resulting in an imperforated hymen (it lacks the more common opening). Some females have no hymen at birth at all, since the tissue divided completely while they were still in the womb.

Many girls and teens tear or otherwise dilate their hymen while participating in sports like bicycling, horseback riding, gymnastics or inserting tampons, or while masturbating. A girl may not even know this has occurred, since there may be little or no blood or pain involved when this happens. The tissues of the vulva are generally very thin and delicate prior to puberty. The presence or absence of a hymen in no way indicates whether or not a female is a virgin. * You are a virgin until you have sexual intercourse.*

Some hymens are elastic enough to permit a penis to enter without tearing, or they tear only partially, and there is NO bleeding at all. When adequately lubricated the vagina is fairly 'flexible' and will stretch without discomfort for most women. Sometimes, a woman has sex for years with no real 'tearing' at all, only stretching of the hymen and then at another time the same woman might tear from 'rough sex' or sex with a different partner with a larger penis. Remnants of the hymen are usually still present until a woman delivers a baby vaginally. See Pregnancy Articles for more on childbirth.

Sure, see what your vagina looks like with a mirror, it's your body, you should not be afraid of it . Some young women seem to obsess over what is 'normal'. So, put away the mirror after you know what is normal for you. While it is important to know what your body looks like, so you can tell when there is a change or something to see your health care provider about, donít obsess over what is is 'supposed to' look like. All of our faces look different and none of our vaginas look exactly the same either. Thatís all I have to say about hymens.

I have some diagrams of different hymens, but some sponsor think they are not appropriate for me to show, even for educational purposes. However, there is a page that does have a photograph of the anatomy of the female vagina. Itís not that hard to find if you do a search. AND, speaking of sponsors, if you would kindly click on the banner ads on the top of the page or on the left here that helps keep this site on the web. Thatís who helps me continue to bring you information, kind of like commercials on TV, they are annoying, but they are a reality of our world. Thank you in advance!
