Unless you've just made medical history, no, there's nothing wrong with you. Your hymen didn't grow back. Here are some facts about hymens:
Everyone is different. Some hymens bleed profusely when broken; others don't bleed at all. Some tear only partially during first penis-vagina sex; others disappear completely. Most likely, yours is a very strong hymen which only partially tore, so there's still some tissue left.
By the time we reach puberty, our hymen has already begun to wear away. If it didn't, it would impossible for our menstrual blood to exit the body. A lot of women break their hymens through nonsexual means. This could include tampon insertion, horse or bicycle riding, dancing, gymnastics and other strenuous exercises. But yes, some women's hymens tear during the first time they have sexual penetration (that includes by penis, fingers, toys, etc.), and some don't tear all the way, because some women have really thick hymens that are resistant to tearing. You may experience several instances of p-v sex before your hymen is totally gone. As long as you're not experiencing lots of pain or bleeding, this should not be a problem. Dr. J
