By inserting your finger into the vagina, it is possible that you could have broken the hymen. This results in slight bleeding. This cannot be told by visual examination as the hymen is quite inside the vagina. A gynecologist can tell after inserting a finger and gently probing around.
However, even if the hymen is ruptured it is not something to be scared about. The hymen can rupture in virgins in accidents, while cycling, during stretch exercise or sometimes accidently without any cause. At times girls are worried that their partners may feel that they are not virgins when they have intercourse for the first time. Understanding and trust between partners is necessary for the girl to make her partner understand that not all virgins have an intact hymen.
If this is really making you very tense, then you can go for hymen repair provided it has ruptured. Please consult your gynecologist as a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
