Many websites explaining this method of using tampons say: This is for married women; the use of this product for an unmarried woman leads to a breach of the hymen. If these claims are correct, a virgin girl should avoid using tampons as it becomes not permissible for her to tear her hymen on purpose. Instead, she should use the popular girls’ safe pads that don’t need to be inserted into the vagina.
