Answers:    Popping your cherry is reffering to breaking your hymen [[a think cover in the vaginal canal]] which CAN break due to tampon use. However, even if your hymen breaks, you're still a virgin til you have sex. Having sex [[the physical insertion of penis into vagina]] is the only deciding factor in whether or not you're a virgin. You might not know if you broke it, since you were already on your period, but you shouldn't be worried about it. You're still a virgin.
Your mom is full of something. It's not your hymen that makes you a virgin--if you have oral sex, are you still NOT a virgin?

You can break your hymen with a tampon, but it will be stinging. I broke mine with a hymen at least.
Tampons don't go far enough in to pop it. "Popping your cherry" refers to your hymen, and is usually used to describe losing your virginity.
you are a virgin unless you have sex, tampons don't count
Cherry= Hymen

Many people are under the impression that the hymen is located within the vagina. It is not. It’s a mucous membrane that is part of the vulva, the external genital organs. It’s located outside the vagina. The hymen is a layer of tissue, just like the tissue around the opening of your vagina that partially conceals the vaginal orifice. You may or may not have one, most females do. The hymen is not an indicator of virginity; a girl is a virgin until she has been penetrated by a penis.

Hope this helps. I got it from
if u had sex u popped it
Just because you popped your cherry doesn't mean you're not a virgin. I think I popped mine when I was little because I hurt myself on a bicycle. I remember there was just a little bit of blood, the type that's gone after a wipe of tissue. It wasn't like period blood, at least not from my experience.
the "cherry" is just they hyman. u are still a virgin. putting in a tampon dont make u not a virgin. only sex makes u not a virgin.
