Jul 27, - Hi Alice,. I am a virgin but I want to use tampons. Can I even though I am not broken? Please answer quickly. I start going to the Y in a few. Tampons work just as well for girls who are virgins as they do for girls who have had sex. And even though using a tampon can occasionally cause a girl's hymen to stretch or tear, it does not cause a girl to lose her virginity. (Only having sex can do that.).
