Is the hymen ruptured during intercourse for the first time or due to physical exercise?

Reasons which can cause rupture to the hymen:
  • Sexual intercourse for the first time
  • An accident or injury, such as falling astride on a projecting substance, trying to climb over a fence and tripping
  • Sports activities like horse riding, bicycling, playing seesaw, high jump, and hurdles 
  • Introduction of instruments by doctors during examination or surgical operation
