Hello, thank you for your question. This is a complete misconception. Sex should not be painful in your first sexual encounter. Should not result in bleeding. Hymen is a thin piece of tissue located at the opening of the vagina. Hymens come in different shapes. there are certain types that would result in tearing or inability for penetration and require surgery.. However, a normal hymen allows for menstrual flow, secretions and penetration. This is an absolute myth.
