What is Hymen ?

Hymen is a part of female genital tract, which is a thin membrane that gently covers the opening of vagina. It is named after the Greek God- Hymenaeus- The God of weddings. Hymen can vary in shape and size. Most hymens don’t fully cover the vagina so that menstrual fluid can come out. Some hymen may be annular (that surround the vaginal wall with an open space in the center), septate (few strands of tissue run across hymenal opening), or sometimes imperforate (no hymenal opening in the hymen - sometimes this also needs surgery if it does not allow menstural flow to occur).

Function of Hymen, Cultural Myths !

The hymen does not seem to have a specific function. Some consider it to be a structure that prevents foreign bodies or dirt gain any entry into vagina during childhood. In some culture there is unfortunately a tradition that an intact hymen is proof of virginity in woman. It has been scientifically proven that a ruptured hymen need not be a proof of any premarital sexual contact.

Hymen rupture & Injury

The hymen may rupture before marriage or before first sexual contact due to trauma, abuse, inserting fingers, sport injuries, strenous physical activity, or occasional erroneuous gynecology examination during childhood etc.
