after 5years of marriage, turns out my hymen hasnt been broken..why is this.? had gone for an op before, where they stretched me a bit , because i was too tight..

The hymen isn't always

The hymen isn't always necessarily torn at all, even by sex, it can just be stretched. An active woman may have stretched her hymen without tearing it.

I am not sure about whether your concern is related to fertility or intercourse, but finding a doctor with whom you are comfortable asking these questions would be very beneficial. He or she can help you become more familiar with your body and what you should or shouldn't expect.
