Hello RiShi454,

Welcome again to EmpowHER. That is a very interesting question.

Some will define a person as a virgin if he or she has never engaged in anal, oral or vaginal sex.

Others will say that a woman is still a virgin if she has an intact hymen. This is misleading.

The hymen is a thin, porous membrane that covers the vagina. Menstrual flow can pass through it. A woman can insert a tampon through it.

If you are concerned if your girlfriend is still a virgin, ask her.

Hello RiShi454,

Are you asking, if a girl has bleeding following sex for the first time, that is the sign that she is a virgin?

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

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.

RiShi454, my simple answer is no.
