Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 7 years ago.
You can tell about your hymen by putting a finger or two in your vagina. With one finger, you'll probably hardly feel your hymen, but when you put 2 fingers in, it may get tight. Then you'll be able to feel if it's elastic or thick. It's often a good idea to start using tampons before you have sex. They tend to very gradually open up your hymen over time, with no discomfort. If you do, start with a very small one to see how it goes. Tampons also tend to make it easier to have a pelvic exam and Pap smear. Hymens vary a great deal, from really tight to not tight at all. You'll get a good idea by feeling with your fingers and trying to insert a tampon. Best wishes.
