Regarding The Shape Of The Hymen?
Doctor, because I am low in knowledge about blood membranes, when I was in junior high school I often cleaned my vagina using my fingers to enter the vaginal opening. There was no bleeding, until I was exposed to nails, when I cleaned the vagina too hard, so that my finger pressed against the bottom of the vaginal wall, only painful, I was curious to see the membrane of my blood. It turned out that my hymen became not like a round ring. Something was uneven on the bottom. And aside .. But in my entire life there has never been a penis into the vagina (sexual intercourse). Now I am going to marry the TNI. Will the doctor who checks my virginity accuse me of not being a virgin because of sexual relations? I was very scared, what should I do?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
You need to know beforehand, the hymen is located on the inside of the vagina, and is not easily observed in plain sight by regular examination. In women who have never been married, often, hymen examination is done by the digital rectal method, which is by inserting a finger into the rectum to push the vagina so that the area inside can be evaluated more clearly. Therefore, it needs to be clarified first, is it true that what you observe is the hymen, or not?
Hymen in each person can vary in shape. Not always, hymen that is no longer whole indicates a woman who is not a virgin. In some cases, it can also be a woman who is still a virgin (in a sense, a virgin means never had sex) her hymen is no longer intact due to several factors, for example:
Injury, often while cycling, or injuries due to nail scratches as you experience Masturbation Excessive side effects of certain medical measures, for example urinary catheter placement Genetic abnormalities from birth Conversely, there are also women who are no longer virgins, but still have an intact hymen because the elasticity of the membranes so that they do not tear easily even though the penetration of the penis.
On the basis of the various considerations above, it is not right to determine a person's virginity status only by assessing the integrity of the membrane. However, some institutions do have their own policies, including the institution where your future husband works. In this regard, it is far more appropriate to consult directly with the higher-ups in the institution.
I hope this helps.
