Question: Does a virgin girl with an imperforate hymen bleed when it's time for her first menstruation? She is born with an imperforate hymen. If she becomes an adult with her hymen intact, and if it's time for her first menstruation, does she bleed? If not, what are the hygienic effects on her? Does the blood, which is supposed to come out, stay in the womb? What is the best thing to do before it's too late? Penetrate the hymen? Is it painful?

Answer: The hymen is not completely closed, it looks a little like the sickle of the moon, so when you get your period, the blood will come out normally. I would recommend against trying to break your hymen, unless you know what you are doing, you may injure yourself. It very rarely happens that the hymen covers the entire vaginal tube, and it usually has a few tiny openings in this rare case. A doctor will be able to tell you for sure if everything is ok with you.
