Dear Bovern,

Your experience is not uncommon at all. The hymen, which is the skin referred to as the "physical virginity" of women often has been severed earlier in their lives due to anything such as rough sports or using a tampon. Even if this has not been the case, for some women the hymen is quite thin and severs without much pain or discomfort.
