Today i got really excited and started fingering my vagina. Then after a while i inserted a finger inside my vagina. I am a virgin. after inserting my finger inside i started to push it more and more. But When i was pushing i felt a light pain and when i saw my finger , it had a slight coating of blood . No blood came out my vagina and the pain also stopped after a 10-15 minutes. I wanted to know have i accidently broken my hymen?

Given the information you provided, there’s a slight possibility that you’ve hurt your hymen, though this can not be confirmed without a physical examination. You might want to check this with your family doctor (if experienced) or with a gynecologist to make sure.
