There is space that allows the menstrual discharge to leave one’s vagina. Some women are born without this membrane. Sometimes the minor hymen can be torn by strenuous physical activities such as vaginal intercourse. However, some women don’t experience bleeding or tearing during sex, since their hymen can stretch enough to ensure that the penis is fully accommodated. In other cases, tearing of this membrane might not be followed by bleeding.
