I Tried 3 Kegel Trainers To Strengthen My Vag—Here's What Happened
In mammals , the vagina is the elastic, muscular part of the female genital tract. In humans, it extends from the vulva to the cervix. The outer vaginal opening is normally partly covered by a membrane called the hymen.
The hymen is a thin piece of mucosal tissue that surrounds or partially covers the external vaginal opening. It forms part of the vulva , or external genitalia , and is similar in structure to the vagina. In children, a common appearance of the hymen is crescent -shaped, although many shapes are possible. During puberty , estrogen causes the hymen to change in appearance  and become very elastic. The hymen may rip or tear the first time penetrative intercourse happens, which may cause temporary bleeding or slight discomfort, but sources differ on how common tearing and bleeding after first intercourse is.
