The clog may be at the faucet itself. If the faucet has a screen, try removing that first. If no screen, or nothing is found in the screen, the clog may be something lodged in the faucet's valve or the flexible tubing connecting the faucet to the pipe. If clearing these doesn't solve the problem, your best bet is to replace the pipes going to that faucet. Best of luck. I had old black iron pipes in my house with so much corrosion that there wasn't a large enough hole for a pencil in what was originally 3/4in pipe. I ended up replacing all the Plumbing in my house.

Do tampons break the hymen?

No, not necessarily.The hymen is often nothing more than a narrow crescent shaped piece of tissue located at the back of the vaginal opening, thus can allow items into the vagina without tearing - especially as the hymen is flexible so can stretch to allow things through without tearing. The hymen can be torn from tampon use, but it's not necessarily the case.
