Treatment For Women Who Do Not Have A Vaginal Opening?
Good afternoon, I want to ask. In the case of the imperforata hymen does anyone still experience menstruation (menstrual blood stays out normally) every month? So it’s kind of undetected that the case is imperforate hymen. If there is, does it still have to do surgery? Or, are there other cases where vaginal anatomy resembles hymen imperforata but menstrual blood stays out normally? If so, what is the solution? thanks.
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Please note first that the definition of imperforate hymen is hymen (hymen) which has no holes at all. Menstruation can still occur, because basically there are no hormonal abnormalities in the condition of imperforate hymen, but menstrual blood that decays from the uterus can not come out of the body due to the absence of holes in the hymen. This blood will remain in the vagina because the hymen is clogged and not hollow, so the patient cannot see the menstrual blood coming out, but secondary sex growth and menstrual pain can still occur.
Management in this case is certainly through a surgical procedure to perforate the hymen without holes, so that menstrual blood can come out and not be held in the vagina.
So, if in the case of the imperforata hymen that has not been managed (the hymen is still clogged), there is no way menstrual blood will appear. Blood that can come out until it can be seen can be a true indication that menstrual blood from the imperforate hymen is now hollow without realizing it (for example post-intercourse, or trauma hymen), can also be blood from other structures that occur in the vagina outside the hymen, for example ulcers broken vagina, vaginal sores outside the hymen, etc.
To be sure, of course, physical examination must first be done. For this reason, you should check with your obstetrician so that you can track the current condition.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
