What color is a hymen?

What color is a hymen? Is it pink like the parts down there is it a whitish membrane looking thing? I tried to google image it, but it's not very helpful.  Thanks.

It can vary in colour a bit, but it's generally pinkish. You can see some pictures of hymens on this page for reference.

Wow, thanks for the pictures! Now I'm starting to wonder if I've got quite a bit of hymen left...how interesting!

so THAT'S the hymen! how very cool! i didn't bleed when i lost my virginity so i always assumed i either tore it using tampons/masturbating or it didn't exist in the first place. but according to that picture, i still have a small bit of it left. guess i tore it way before sex.

our bodies are amazing.

Yeah, I've been sexually active for over two years, and I've still got quite a bit of hymen hanging on. (And it definitely tore the first time I tried to have sex...) I've read that it often doesn't get obliterated until a baby comes out there.
