The anatomical structure of the hymen varies from person to person. The most common hymen type is "annular", that is, "round ring" type.
In the type of round ring hymen seen between 60 and 95%, the hymen covered the edge of the cavity extending into the vagina in a round ring shape.
- Anuler Hymen (Round ring)
- Septat Hymen (with division)
- Subseptat Hymen (With half division)
- Crescent Hymen (In the form of a half moon)
- Cribriform Hymen (multi-hole like "Sieve")
- Denticular Hymen
- Fimbrian Hymen
- Labial Hymen
Very rarely, the hymen can completely close the congenital vaginal entrance and thereby prevent the menstrual blood from coming out. This pathological condition is known as “imperfore hymen”.
Imperforate hymen shows itself with severe abdominal pain and abdominal distention, especially in young girls when the menstrual blood cannot be thrown out when the first menstrual age comes. In this case, with a simple gynecological surgery, the hymen is cut and the menstrual blood can be flowed out.
