What is hymen: Hymen is a membrane present at the lower part of vagina, right above the vaginal opening. In Greek words Hymen means membrane and Raphe means repair. Intact hymen is thought to be a proof of virginity and lost only at first intercourse. Hymen can be of many shapes and sizes from birth. Some lack opening and require surgery to let the menstrual flow out. Some have a pinhole-opening, requiring surgery to achieve intercourse and pregnancy. Hymen can be broken not only at first intercourse, but also due to horse riding, strenuous sports activity, injury, accident and insertion of tampon.
