Hi Doctor
Is it true that a guy can feel if a girl is still a virgin or not? And if it is so how can a virgin go for a papsmeer. Won't that cause damage to her virginity?Hope you can help me with this question.

The man cannot feel when you are a virgin. Some women have pain when the hymen is broken but others do not. It is not necessary for a woman who is not sexually active to have pap smears unless there are any symptoms like irregular bleeding. In this case, it would be possible to have a pap smear. The hymen is not solid, it has a hole in the centre through which a pap smear can be done.

No a guy cannot "feel" if you're a virgin. Its only necesary to start having pap smears once you're sexually active. If you had one before you had sex, it would not make you no longer a virgin.

You lose your virginity only when you have sex - not when you're examined / insert a tmapon, etc.

Your hymen may be broken before you actually have sex for the first time though - this can happen through paying sport, horse riding, etc. You're still a virgin though.

Hope that helps you understand better....
