Splits and Stretching-How do they affect?

by admin on November 22, 2009

I am and have been a active dancer for around 6 years now. I constantly work on my splits and flexibility and I’ve always wondered something. Splits ect. put alot of strain on the groin area. Is it likely your hymen will get broken this way? Also do you think this stretching of the area might later on not be good? Thanks!

The hymen can be broken lots of different ways, and not just from stretching, which is not a major cause.
You are not stretching the area you are concerned about when you are stretching your legs.
Dancing and other athletics can break the hymen, it does not mean you are not a virgin, don’t worry about it.
