How Can You Check If You Have A Hymen And What Does It Look Like?

Answer

Hi there

Hymens all look different but it is basically the skin around the vaginal opening. Some are round, some are shaped like a crescent, some are torn from masturbation or some sexual experience. Some hymens tear from regular activities such as exercise.

Here is a good website which has illustrations of what a hymen may look like.

You can take a mirror and look to see what everything looks like. Everyone will look different.

If you have concerns you can discuss this with your doctor or gynecologist.

Thank you for your question.
