The main indicator of a girl's innocence, when there was no sexual intercourse in her life yet, is an anatomically complete hymen. Usually, the hymen breaks during the first intercourse, which may be accompanied by slight bleeding, which will soon subside. This process is called defloration. During a physical examination, the gynecologist immediately determines whether the girl had sexual contacts or not.

Step 1

Using gauze pads, the gynecologist grabs the labia majora into the fold with his thumb and forefinger and spreads them apart. The hymen in this position is stretched and clearly visible. The doctor pays attention to the structural features of the hymen, determining its shape, type, thickness, width, and then begins to examine its free edge.

Step 2

To examine the hymen better, a glass spatula or stick is inserted into the hole, on which the edge of the hymen is straightened, and it becomes more accessible for examination. The doctor pays attention to irregularities, indentations, thickenings, protrusions, features of the edges and color. If there was no defloration, it usually has a diameter of 2-2.5 cm. The doctor also examines the opening of the hymen. In this case, a magnifying glass or an operating microscope can be used, since it is not always possible to distinguish by eye from the former ruptures the natural opening in the body of the hymen.

Step 3

In a natural cavity, the mucous membrane has edges of a uniform color, matching the color of the surrounding tissue. At the site of the tear, the edges are usually whitish in color due to the formation of scar tissue. Although in some cases the scars are delicate and thin, almost indistinguishable from the surrounding mucous membrane.

Step 4

Even if the doctor does not determine the presence of a complete hymen during a pelvic examination, he will try to insert one or two fingers into the vagina. If at the same time a contraction ring is felt, and it is impossible to insert the fingers completely without damaging the hymen, the doctor concludes that the patient is a virgin. In such cases, further examination of the girl is carried out through the anus using a special tool.
