A Person’s Virginity After Catheter Placement?
For example, we’ve been operated on and continued to urinate using our hose, are we still virgins or not?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Virgin is a status when a woman has never had sex with a penis into the vagina. In KBBI (Big Indonesian Dictionary), a virgin means never having intercourse with a man; still pure.
But there are also many in society who associate virginity with the integrity of the hymen, or what is called medical hymen in medical language. If this hymen or hymen has been torn, which is usually known by not bleeding during sexual intercourse, a woman is considered to be not a virgin. This assumption must be corrected, because people assume that the hymen can only be torn when having sex. The reality is not so, hymen can be torn by accident, riding a bicycle, stretching out legs too wide as in athletes on the floor gymnastics, and inserting objects (besides the penis) into the vagina deep enough to pierce and tear the hymen. So it is possible for women to have hymen who have been torn but are still virgins.
But regarding your question, there is one more thing that must be straightened out, that the hole used for urination and the hole used for sexual intercourse, is different. For more details, see the picture below.
In the picture, when a woman urinates or urinates, the flow of urine comes out through the urethral opening or designated with number 3. Meanwhile, when having sex, the penis enters through the vaginal opening or designated with number 5 (red box). Here also lies the hymen or hymen, and here too the baby will come out the next time you give birth.
So for your question, the point is as long as you are not having sex, you are still a virgin. A person's virginity is not determined by the presence or absence of the hymen because the hymen can be torn for various reasons, and the hymen will not be torn if you install a hose to urinate because the path is different. So, hopefully answering your question.
