    You should see a gynecologist. Minor surgery may be needed to correct this condition. I imagine you researched it already to determine that you have a septated hymen, two small vaginal openings instead of one?

     

    The doctor after examining you will make the recommendation they think appropriate. Until then you should be careful when trying to insert, or withdraw a tampon, you may or may not have trouble. If you can get by with a maxipad or equivalent, it might be better. But, only you or an examining physician can decide about a tampon right now.

     

    As to the why they break, there are so many reasons, exercise, sports, stretching, any number of daily activities can cause this. The hymen has no bearing on who you are, so don't worry about that, just schedule an exam, you will be fine.

      seee my point was that the septate broke.. so now i do have one opening not two... so whats the point of going to the gyno..a lot of women jus cut it themselves anyways it jus randomly brokee so i should be fine, right. and i usedd tampons this time FYI and it didnt get stuck because theres nothing for it to get caught on!
