Yes, as long as you haven’t had sex, you are still a virgin. Some girls worry that if they use tampons, they will no longer be virgins. The truth is, a virgin is someone who has never had sexual intercourse. So why do people ask this question so often? Girls who are virgins usually have a hymen, a very thin piece of skin-like tissue that partly covers the opening of the vagina. The first time a girl has sex the hymen stretches and may tear and bleed a little. That is why people say the hymen is “broken”.
