But as a percent of all single women your age, they are a minority.
You should try to get married soon or else abandon the idea of being a virgin.
Only someone who has never done any of those four kinds of sexual intercourse?
Different people have different ideas when it comes to what makes a person not a virgin.
Everyone has to decide what importance virginity has to him or her. Since the hymen can be broken in so many ways other than sexual intercourse, it isn't all that useful as an indicator of intercourse experience in most women of marriageable age. It can show if a very young girl (of the age that would normally have an intact hymen) has been sexually abused, and in what manner. I can't tell whether or not I am because he got all of the head in, but not much else.
I've only used the smaller sizes twice before getting scared that I broke my hymen, so is it intact, damaged, or gone?
Most people believe that someone who has only engaged in manual intercourse is still a virgin.
If you want to be absolutely certain that everyone will regard you as a virgin, you can't do anything "below the waist," either yours or your partner. The hymen is a thin fold of skin partially covering the vaginal opening. If I no longer have a hymen, does that mean I am no longer a virgin?
Most older virgins (18 ) have little or no hymen left.
And a few women have had sexual intercourse but for whatever reason, the hymen remains intact. I'm really concerned if a doctor can tell if I've had sex or not. (age 17) When a doctor examines a female's genitals, he or she can estimate whether she's had sex or not.
(age 15) Someone would have to look to say for sure, but if you've used any tampons at all, it's unlikely your hymen is still intact.
