Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

A virgin is someone who has not had sex. But, people define sex differently.

A lot of people think that women and men lose their virginity the first time they have penis-in-vagina intercourse or vaginal sex. This definition is really limited because it excludes lots of people and other types of sex.

Some people who haven't had vaginal sex don't think of themselves as virgins because they've had other kinds of sex, like oral or anal sex. And then there are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people who may never have vaginal sex, but don't think of themselves as virgins. Others believe that it depends on consent (consent means wanting and agreeing to have sex). So being forced to have sex, for example, isn't losing your virginity.

The hymen is a thin, fleshy tissue that stretches across part of the opening of the vagina.

The hymen can be stretched open the first time a girl has vaginal sex, which might cause some pain or bleeding.

Some people, and some cultures, believe that a woman whose hymen has been stretched open is no longer a virgin. But having a hymen and being a virgin are not the same thing.

There are other ways that a hymen can be stretched open, by inserting something into the vagina, like a tampon or a finger, riding a bicycle, or doing sports. And some girls are born with so little hymenal tissue that it seems like it was never there.

Anonymous, I hope this helps you understand that spotting after the first time you have vaginal intercourse, may or may not happen.Also, I hope this gives you a better idea of what it means to lose one's virginity.
