Etymologically, the term hymen comes from the Greek word for membrane.
According to the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education, the hymen is a set of mucous tissue, located 1-2 cm inside the vaginal opening. Rather than a fragile membrane or curtain that breaks, however, the hymen is actually multiple folds of mucous membrane; a vaginal corona, in other words.
The first time the hymen is stretched – whether by a tampon, through penetrative sex or masturbation – there might be some pain, and minor ruptures in the mucous folds may lead to a little bleeding. However, fewer than half of women experience pain or bleeding the first time they have penetrative sex. Some women experience pain and/or bleeding even if they have had penetrative sex many times before.
It introduced a booklet that describes what the female genitals look like and what the vaginal corona actually is. The authors aim is to dispel many of the myths surrounding female sexuality and the misconceptions concerning the hymen and virginity. Source
