5 Myths About Hymen Girls Don’t Know



Your hymen is just a thin piece of membrane that sits about two centimeters inside the vaginal opening. It has no purpose, it’s existence is baffling to doctors and scientists, and it’s widely considered an evolutionary mystery.

Everyone would be better off if they stopped believing in the unnecessary myths surrounding the hymen. The less mystery there is around vaginas, the better sex is, and the healthier people with vaginas are.

Here are five myths about the hymen that deserve to be squashed, once and for all.

Myth 1: The hymen breaks when you have sex.

There’s a little bit of a truth to this, but for the most part,it’s a myth. The hymen doesn’t break so much as it stretchesor tears, says Brightman. And for a lot of people, the hymen actually tears before the first time they have penetrative sex.”Tampon use, and just regular activities like horseback, riding, gymnastics, and riding a bike can disrupt the hymen,”. Because the hymen is so thin, and sits so close to the vaginal opening, it’s delicate and susceptible to tearing during childhood .

Myth 2: When the hymen is torn, it bleeds and hurts a lot.

This is true for some people—just as allvaginas are different, all hymens are, too—but not everyone. Some people don’t notice it at all when their hymen is torn, and others may feel a bit of discomfort andnotice light to moderate spotting. If you experience severe or persistent discomfort, or heavy bleeding, it suggests calling your doctor or gynecology office for an exam.

Myth 3: The hymen is torn once, and then that’s it.

This isn’t a one-and-done thing,as thought. You might tear your hymen a bit when you insert a tampon the first time, and then tear it some more when you insert something bigger—like a penis, a few fingers, a vibrator, etc. This explains why you might see some bleeding not just the first time you have penetrative sex, but the first few times. It’s all totally fine and normal.

Myth 4: If someone’s hymen is torn, that means they’ve had sex.

No, no, a million times no. Anyone who tells you some garbage about how you can tell if a woman has had sex depending on if she bleeds after is lying to you, and doesn’t know what they’re talking about.As you’ve literally just read, this little piece of tissue can tear in so many ways—many of them not at all sexual.

Myth 5: The hymen grows back if you don’t have sex for a,long time.

Once the hymen is torn or stretched open, it stays that way, according, to Planned Parenthood. Even if nothing goes inside your vagina for 50 years, that sucker isn’t closing back up. “Re-virginization” isn’t real.

#EndSARS: ‘Forces beyond my control shot at protesters in Lekki’, says Sanwo-Olu



Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered an immediate investigation into the shootings at Lekki, hours after he imposed a curfew in the state.

Men dressed in military gear opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate around 7pm on Tuesday, October 20, leaving many dead, injured and hospitalised.

The lights and security cameras were turned off before the shootings began.

Members of the Nigerian army pulled up on us and they started firing. They were shooting, they were firing straight at us and a lot of people got hit. I just barely survived,” says Akinbosola Ogunsanya, who was at the scene of the incident.

The protesters have been calling for an end to police brutality since October 4; and had blocked the Lekki-Epe toll gate, Lekki-Ikoyi link bridge and other major roads in Lagos, while staging sit-in, candle-lit processions for victims of police brutality.

The protests had turned violent and fatal in Lagos and across the country, however, with hoodlums hijacking the marches and burning down police stations for effect.

Sanwo-Olu announced a 24-hour curfew at noon of October 20 in a bid to curtail the violence and halt the anarchy.

The governor initially announced that the curfew would commence at 4pm. This was later moved to 9pm.

The men in military gear opened fire on the unarmed protesters two hours before the curfew was billed to kick off.

Reports say at least 10 people died during the shooting.

Sanwo-Olu, who said he never gave the order, added that he’s visited the scene of the incident and hospitals.

This is the toughest night of our lives as forces beyond our direct control have moved to make dark notes in our history, but we will face it and come out stronger,” the governor said.

I’ve just concluded visits to hospitals with victims of this unfortunate shooting incident at Lekki.

“It has taken me this long to make a statement because I have to prioritize the welfare of the victims of this very sad incident.”

Sanwo-Olu also said he’s going to address residents of the state formally at dawn.

There are currently 10 patients at the General Hospital, 11 at Reddington and 4 at Vedic; with mild to moderate levels of injuries while 2 are receiving intensive medical care.

“3 patients have been discharged and we will continue to monitor and ensure all patients get the best care.

“As the governor of our state, I recognize the buck stops at my table and I will work with the federal government to get to the root of this unfortunate incident and stabilise all security operations to protect the lives of our residents.

“I will give a state broadcast in the morning,” he added.
