THE hymen is a membrane usually present at the entrance to a woman’s vagina if she has never had penetration.
It breaks to allow the erect penis to enter the vagina during sex. When the hymen breaks, there is usually a little bleeding, which varies from one woman to another.

Dear Doctor,
Can the hymen break if a virgin has protected sex with a circumcised man? Can this cause bleeding and transmission of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD), even when she has one sexual partner?

Dear Fred,
THE hymen is a membrane usually present at the entrance to a woman’s vagina if she has never had penetration.
It breaks to allow the erect penis to enter the vagina during sex. When the hymen breaks, there is usually a little bleeding, which varies from one woman to another.

Some women do not bleed. Any male, circumcised or uncircumcised can break the hymen with penetration.

The ‘protection’ or condom only prevents the transmission of disease and prevents pregnancy.

If both partners are virgins, there is no STD present since both have never had sex. The bleeding will not lead to transmission of STDs.
