Has the hymen been broken or not? Is the hymen normal or microperforate? Do I need surgery? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Thank you for your question and photograph. It is difficult to assess the status of your hymen based on one photograph. However, based on you having intercourse, the status of your hymen does not appear of any significance. However, if you are having difficulties with menstrual flow or other medical issues, then the status of the hymen is more of a medical issue. I would recommend evaluation by a gynecologist to better determine the status of your hymen. I hope that this explanation helped.

You don't have a hymen problem unless you have a functional problem
