Did it Get Broken? - February 23rd 2012, 11:46 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So the other day I was looking up what a Hymen was. And I found out what it was of course. But then I began to wonder if I still have mine intact or not.

I was raped when I was 6. But it wasn't like a rough rape. Instead the boy (who was probably between 13-16) just sort of laid down on top of me. I don't think he really went in- I can't remember. And he came, but I don't remember any pain or anything.

So could he have broken my hymen? It's just...it bothers me to think he could have. To just look at myself and think "Something was there, but it's not because he took that from me."

And I know hymens can break by various activities and some girls are born without one even. But it still bothers me.

I tried to check myself, but I can't really tell. :/ It looks like it still might be there. But I guess I just want a second opinion on if the possibility of it being broken by him is there.

You'd be able to feel it. If you tried to insert your finger into your vagina, you'd be able to feel if it was there. I wouldn't be too bothered by it though, because even if it's not there, you have no way of proving whatsoever that it was because of what happened when you were younger.

I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but it's very possible that he could have broken it. However that doesn't mean he did. You may still have your hymen intact, or if not, it could be from various reasons, from the rape to simply riding a bicycle or using tampons. I understand why you don't want to think he may have been one to take something physical like that from you, but he may not have. If it is gone, it could've been for a number of reasons, I don't think you should dwell on it too much. I can't really tell you how to tell if it's intact or not, google probably could though. You could also go to a gynecologist to find out if you wanted to, but even if it's gone, it doesn't mean he "popped" it.
